Mojo Mom Chapter 3: Banking the Embers of Your Self...to Build a Bonfire Later
This is a very practical chapter, as I discuss the Four Phases to Getting Your Mojo Back: Survival Mode, Incubating Your Desires, Setting Priorities and Goals, and taking Baby Steps Toward Your Goals (pun intended). There is also an important discussion of how to decide what gets put on your To-Do list in the first place.
Additionally, I recommend the following books for a variety of perspectives on how to reconnect with your essential self, and a life that is sustaining and sustainable in the long run:
