Betrayal. Clarity. Forgiveness. When you are in the midst of betrayal you can’t always see-or think- clearly. But your decisions during and after this journey shape your final outcome. In Robin Crowell-Cunningham’s upcoming book, I LANDED ON MY FEET (coming July 6th), she takes readers through her own personal experience with loss and recovery. Let’s chat with Robin now!
Tell us how your own adversity in your own journey motivated you to write this book to help others. At the time I was going through what I went through I didn’t know my experiences were going to turn into a book. I just knew that I had a story to tell and that one day I would tell it. I had no choice but to make it because I had two little girls who were dependent on me and we had no one else. Being triumphant through my trials motivated me to help inspire other women that they do can make it through. I wanted to let other women know that it’s possible to land on their feet because I did it.
As women work on recovering in one or all five of the areas focused on in the book – spiritual, physical, social, emotional and financial – how would you recommend they learn to balance self-care for all without losing another? It’s a gradual process. You’re going to be imbalanced in the beginning because you’re learning to adapt to a whole new lifestyle from what you’ve previously known. Compare balancing the core areas of your life to juggling. You start off with one or two, then when u get the hang of it you add more and before you know it you’re juggling them all and you have a rhythm and essentially you have balance.
Women have to be ready to take action and be fully engaged in their recovery. What point in her life is the woman your book appealing to? It depends on what stage in life the reader is in. This book is applicable to all stages in a woman’s life as it starts off showing the beginning years, the years during and it spans all the way to the current day and there’s even advice in there for the future. Regardless of the point in the woman’s life, any woman who picks up this book will find an element that is appealing and relevant to her own as this book shows how to live life in the preventative and not in the repair.
