Waking Up in Winter: In Search of What Really Matters at Midlife

Waking Up in Winter: In Search of What Really Matters at MidlifeBy Cheryl Richardson


As a best-selling author and professional life coach, Richardson is known for having answers. Then she experienced events that made her reevaluate and reexamine her life and what really mattered. She shares her journal entries and candid thoughts about age, marriage, work, friendships and priorities in life.

Richardson says, “I want to give people the tools they need to take better care of themselves-the language to say no, permission to gracefully disappoint others, strategies for setting firm boundaries that honor one’s time and energy. This is not selfish, it’s spiritual. I’m encouraging people to honor the soul, not the ego.”

Readers will find her search included answering thought provoking questions such as “What’s great about your life right now?” and “Who are you grateful for and why?”
