Resilient Living

Build Inner Strength to Master Life’s Challenges with Confidence and Courage

What readers are saying about this 5* rated book …

“There are many texts which approach the idea of resilience but most only grasp the concept and dance around the practice. What we all really want is a guide to tell us what we have to do to improve our lives. This book actually does this. This guide explains exactly what sort of things can be done in our lives now that will improve our ability to deal with difficult situations and roadblocks that fall in our path.” ~The Owl

Emotional resilience is that empowering capacity that enables you to effectively recover from life’s inevitable challenges. It is the key to strengthening self-esteem and confidence, minimizing the effects of stress and enhancing relationships.

The good news is you already have everything you need to become more resilient in life because we are each born with some degree of emotional and physical resilience. How much depends on many things that naturally contribute to personality development, such as heredity, environment, and social factors.

But regardless of your current level of resilience, study after study has shown that emotional resilience can be developed by cultivating a balance between rational abilities such as effective decision making and problem-solving skills, and emotional characteristics such as realistic optimism, compassion, a sense of humor and the courage to push through fear based triggers.

This is the power of resilience. Life doesn’t get easier, we grow stronger. Emotionally Resilient Living will help you identify the areas that need attention, and show you the way to cultivate greater resilience in life than you ever dreamed possible.

Are You a Passenger or the Driver in Your Life Journey?

Life is such a fascinating and brilliant adventure … love and heartache, success and failure, sorrow and joy, fear and courage. One moment you think you’ve got it all figured out and life’s looking pretty darn good, and suddenly you’re blindsided by an unexpected detour. No sooner than you get a handle on things again and BAM, something else throws you for a loop. The wisest among us say that life follows seasons, but sometimes it feels more like roller coaster ride.

Reflections on Resilient Living is an uncommon guidebook featuring hundreds of carefully chosen inspirational quotations and life lessons about making intentional choices to risk loving and living life fully with the confidence that, regardless of whatever challenges you may face along the way, you will be okay. Most of all it’s about choosing to embrace your imperfectly perfect self and in the process learning to dream … again.

Inspirational Quotations and Life Lessons to Warm the Heart and Soothe Soul

What readers are saying about this 5* rated book …

“Reflections on the Nature of Love contains a LOT of great quotes for every situation and season of life and love, from a broad variety of sources. The book is divided into major chapters on Wisdom on Love; Family and Friends; and loving Life. Then into sub-chapters like love changes everything; heartache; forgiveness; friendship; hope; joy. There are even sub-chapters on loving dogs and cats. Some of the cat quotes made me laugh out loud; and some of the dog quotes brought tears to my eyes. Marquita has really done a wonderful job of putting this together, adding a perfect blend of her own thoughts on love and wisdom for living throughout. It’s a great resource that I plan to re-read and use on many occasions. Highly recommended for all.” ~Peter S.

The Resilient Writer

The Resilient Writer

Reflections on the Writing Life & the Business of Being an Author

What readers are saying about this 5* rated book …

“The Resilient Writer” is a unique reference book for writers. It deals with everything a writer needs to know in its three sections, The Writer’s Life, The Business of Being an Author, and Inspiration for the Resilient Writer. Its entries are quotations from not only established and famous writers but also contemporary writers, which offer opinions, insights and advice on the writing life. Each one is worth reading. Perhaps the title, “The Resilient Writer,” says it all. In a market that is flooded with self-published books, it takes resilience for an aspiring writer to succeed and an established writer to prosper, and they need all the help they can get. This book is a great resource.” ~Critical Reader

Achieving any level of success as an author has always required patience, perseverance, and the ability to deal with rejection and extended periods of isolation. Today’s reality is that the rules of the publishing game just keep changing and – regardless of how an author chooses to publish – they must now add to the mix marketing, branding and learning to think of their writing as a business.

The Resilient Writer represents nearly 2 years work gathering hundreds of insightful observations on the writing life and the business of being an author. In addition to motivation and encouragement, it contains a wealth of convenient snippets of advice on the writing craft, marketing and the business of being an author by writers on the front line of publishing. This book isn’t something to be quickly read and set aside, but rather kept close at hand and referred to time and time again.

Tips, strategies and inspiration for the most enjoyable, stress-less holiday season ever!

What readers are saying about this 5* rated book …

“This was a great Christmas primer – easy to read, clear and with good practical tips on making the season less stressful and more joyful. I happen to stress out really easily and get overwhelmed with major parties and having to gift exchange with all these people I barely know and this book had some good ideas on getting organized and prepared early (without being nutso like Martha Stewart – haha). I also really liked the history component where the book goes through the roots of the holiday. People really forget that and it’s so important to take a second and remind why everyone is celebrating in the first place. You won’t go wrong with this sweet book.” ~Rachel W.

To be a writer is to sit down at one’s desk in the chill portion of every day, and to write; not waiting for the little jet of the blue flame of genius to start from the breastbone – just plain going at it, in pain and delight. To be a writer is to throw away a great deal, not to be satisfied, to type again, and then again, and once more, and over and over. ~John Hersey
