Falling Together - Review & Giveaway

Review by Marlene Engel
There are times in life that shake us to our very foundations. We wish for things to get better, fast. But the truth is that moments of “falling apart” are also our most powerful catalysts for growth and change. In Falling Together, Donna Cardillo, a registered nurse, Dr. Oz blogger, and beloved public speaker, reflects on the overwhelming challenges that fall into every life, and the renewal that comes when we are able to meet them with courage. A funny, big-hearted self-help memoir that takes on issues like divorce, caregiving, and burnout—and many women’s biggest enemies of all, fear, insecurity, and self-doubt—Falling Together shows how to turn the challenges that threaten to knock us to the ground into the building blocks we need to become more successful, more joyful, and ultimately, more alive.

There is truth to the say … I am woman.  Hear me roar!  How many hats do we women wear on a daily basis?  For me, I’m a wife and mom.  I am a business owner, caregiver, and domestic goddess (I’m not too proud to admit that!).  I play the role of nurse, chauffer, cook, housecleaner, teacher … heck, we’ll be here all day if I rattle off all the hats I wear!  My point is, we all have many roles.  Some we enjoy, some … well, not so much.  But each role is important to our daily lives and makes our lives, and in turn us, who we are.  But there are times when the strain of day to day living can be too much to handle.  In Falling Together, Donna Cardillo helps offer ways to better handle these stressors, to get them in check before they become all consuming. 

Written by a woman, for women, this book is the perfect tool to help tackle life’s issues and take steps to living a happier, more productive life.  And, who wouldn’t want to benefit from that?
