I’ve received emails and personal inquiries wondering about when the release of my book will come. Can I just say I have never done something so exciting and monotonous at the same time? Lol.
Without further ado, “The Here and Now: Discover the Keys to Unlocking Your Happiness Today” is now available!
The premise of the book is all about being happy in the here and now instead of off-putting our happiness into the existential “one-day” where we finally reach our dreams, make a ton of money, are secure in our “perfect” romantic relationship, thin and fit, or any other story we like to tell ourselves. I’ve read enough books from people who write from the other side of the struggle. Well, I wanted to write about being happy DURING the struggle. And how else could that subject be covered if not from someone, like me, who is currently in the trenches of battle and not fully there yet?
Life is all about enjoying it… at all times. But you know what I’ve noticed? Every book that I’ve ever read pertaining to success, happiness, etc., has always been written by successful people who are on the other side of their goals and dreams. Understandably so, since we all want to learn from the experts. You know that phrase, “those who can’t do, teach?” Yeah, I can’t stand that saying. Please, don’t teach me anything if you can’t do it yourself!
But, the thing is, there is one thing that both the entrepreneur who built a successful multi-million dollar company and the broke college student can be experts in. That is, if they so choose to be; and that is how to be happy and healthy right now, in the present moment.
In this book you will learn the KEYS of what it means to be…
–Joyful, in the midst of the most excruciating circumstances.
—-Peaceful, even when you’re surrounded by people who disagree with you.
——Patient, when things aren’t happening as fast as you would like them to.
——–Kind, when people are not kind to you.
———-Good, whatever that means.
————Faithful, when there is no reason to be.
————–Gentle, when you feel like you’re going to explode.
—————-Under control, even during the times you feel most out of control.
And all of these wonderful keys will be encompassed by the ONE thing everyone in the world can agree on…
Leading up to the doorway of…
Whatever it is that you want to call it, that ultimate goal we all have in our heads of achieving that feeling of, “Ah, this is what it is to live fully” is exactly what my book, “The Here and Now” will accomplish within it’s pages. The principles laid out in this book will grip you by the heart and remind you of what it means to truly live.
This book is a tribute to every person out there who isn’t all there yet. This is about empowering you to be all you can be in your current circumstances and situations. YOU are enough, right now. Not one day, not someday, but TODAY. You have so much to offer the world exactly where you are and your happiness is available to you NOW!
“The Here and Now” is NOW AVAILABLE for Preorder!
Ideally, people want to live their lives with the most minimum amount of “suck” as possible. Sure, we’d like to wake up in the mornings, smell the roses, and not grind our teeth in traffic during the morning commute to work, but some of us weren’t born with a silver spoon in our mouths. Some of us were given the tough life, and that’s just the way it is. Right?
Half right, because that’s only part of the potential to your personal story. Yes, life isn’t always easy and, yes, sometimes it can kick you where it hurts and leave you questioning why you ever left your bed at all this morning, but that doesn’t mean you have to be unhappy. In fact, your circumstances do not even need to be a determining factor for whether or not you live a content, fulfilling, happy life.
Many people are intimidated by improving their life with a Self-Help book because, frankly, it can feel patronizing. You may feel like the words on the page are silently mocking you, as if all the well-meaning advice is just another reminder of how much you aren’t put together. However, Sandi Lard breaks through this barrier in her book, “The Here and Now” by welcoming you to her own trenches of battle. With roughly one dollar in her bank account during the writing of this book, mothering two rambunctious toddlers, few connections, sparse resources, and little accolades to her name, Sandi knows exactly what it’s like to eat pre-packaged noodles for dinner with a smile on her face and gratitude in her heart.
In “The Here and Now,” Sandi walks you step by step through what it means to be content in all types of circumstances. With personal stories, a practical application section, and suggested activities that will compel you to look yourself and the world with different lenses and an enlarged perspective, “The Here and Now” will not only give you logical solutions to your inner turmoil, but a heart solution that will bring about healing and radical life-change. Coming first through the Doorway of Love, Sandi reveals the eight keys necessary to living a healthy, fulfilling life, and ultimately being able to walk through the elusive Doorway of Success. Learn how to be joyful when nothing compels you to have joy, peaceful when everything around you is in chaos, kind when all the world wants to squeeze every last drop of life from your soul, and so much more through the pages of “The Here and Now.”
