Take a Moment: Inspirational Darts to the Heart

Balboa Press
Free sample

Take a Moment was created to bring joy and healing to others through words and photos that have continued to be uplifting, inspiring, and meaningful to me during my cancer recovery and healing. My husband, after my surgery eleven years ago, would craft a daily message for me to keep me focused on my healing. Each consisted of a picture, a quote, and a short affirmative summary upon which I started my day. Whether before driving to the office, before traveling, or before starting up my computer from home, he gifted me with his inspiring thoughts. I created binders of all his creations so I could occasionally go through them, several at a time, to feel his love and his positive affirming words. I also thought that someday I would do something with them. They became my inspiration for Take a Moment. Knowing how much I benefited from these daily reflections, I knew that others would too. So if you are feeling overwhelmed, challenged in your personal or professional life, have a tendency towards negative thinking, or just need to reset your balance, let Take a Moment bring you that uplifting, positive nourishment for your mind, body, and spirit. Just take a moment to be inspired, be enlivened, be nourished, be at peace, be happy, be rejuvenated, be in the moment, be grateful, be thankful, be appreciative. With healing love, Karen

About the author

As a cancer survivor of eleven years, I know how important daily affirmations and uplifting thoughts contribute to health. During my recovery, my husband gave me daily notes to keep me in a positive frame of mind so that I could completely heal. I have married the quotes with photographs of our many world travels together through the years. My intention is to inspire, uplift, and give hope to those going through challenging times. Having held key executive positions in the retail and beauty industry for many years and now being an independent consultant, I know how important it is to motivate, positively nourish, and support everyone we interact with. I currently live in Monarch Beach, California, with the love of my life, my partner and husband. We refresh and recharge by enjoying daily runs and hikes along the beach, watching the waves, being in nature, and being grateful.

"Reflect, Renew, Refresh, The 3 R's for an Inspired Life," is an inspirational and motivational journal with weekly photos, quotes and affirmations. I encourage the reader to reflect on the weekly message and image, then to write down how they intend to use the message in their life for that week; thereby being renewed and refreshed. I have found that if we take the time to Reflect on positive influences and meaningful occurrences, we can Renew our spirit and Refresh our soul. It is so important to maintain balance, peace, joy and love as we go about our days. Sometimes though, it is not easy.

By using "Reflect, Renew, Refresh" as your guide, especially when you are feeling overwhelmed, challenged in your personal or professional life, have a tendency towards negative thinking, or just need to reset your balance, you are committing to positively nourish your mind, body and spirit.

Open “Reflect, Renew, Refresh" to the week and be inspired by the quote, affirmation and photo. Immerse yourself in the beauty of each page and find comfort in the words. Feel your mind and body being healed and nourished.

Then on the accompanying page, write down your interpretation of the quote and affirmation. Set your intention for the week on how you will move forward incorporating the inspiration.

Take the time to "Reflect, Renew, Refresh" giving yourself your weekly dose of inspiration, positivity, and encouragement to help you move forward.

In this generation-defining self-help guide, a superstar blogger cuts through the crap to show us how to stop trying to be "positive" all the time so that we can truly become better, happier people.

For decades, we’ve been told that positive thinking is the key to a happy, rich life. "F**k positivity," Mark Manson says. "Let’s be honest, shit is f**ked and we have to live with it." In his wildly popular Internet blog, Manson doesn’t sugarcoat or equivocate. He tells it like it is—a dose of raw, refreshing, honest truth that is sorely lacking today. The Subtle Art of Not Giving a F**k is his antidote to the coddling, let’s-all-feel-good mindset that has infected American society and spoiled a generation, rewarding them with gold medals just for showing up.

Manson makes the argument, backed both by academic research and well-timed poop jokes, that improving our lives hinges not on our ability to turn lemons into lemonade, but on learning to stomach lemons better. Human beings are flawed and limited—"not everybody can be extraordinary, there are winners and losers in society, and some of it is not fair or your fault." Manson advises us to get to know our limitations and accept them. Once we embrace our fears, faults, and uncertainties, once we stop running and avoiding and start confronting painful truths, we can begin to find the courage, perseverance, honesty, responsibility, curiosity, and forgiveness we seek.

There are only so many things we can give a f**k about so we need to figure out which ones really matter, Manson makes clear. While money is nice, caring about what you do with your life is better, because true wealth is about experience. A much-needed grab-you-by-the-shoulders-and-look-you-in-the-eye moment of real-talk, filled with entertaining stories and profane, ruthless humor, The Subtle Art of Not Giving a F**k is a refreshing slap for a generation to help them lead contented, grounded lives.
