Let’s face it, life is hard; it comes with ups and downs and no true road map of how to make it out successfully.
Courtney and Jennifer share pieces of their personal journeys through life in hopes of inspiring their readers not to give up because of their current situation, and instead make the choice to live the life they want.
Geared toward the unique challenge’s life has to offer The Choice is Yours provides readers with real life experiences, lessons, and advice for taking life by the horns, staying motivated, and addressing the tough stuff like “doing your work”, overcoming trauma, assessing relationships, protecting your energy, and taking a long good look in the mirror. Ultimately getting "you" to see the beauty life has to offer now while on your journey and not in retrospect. Each chapter ends with a section for each reader to journal, answer hard questions, and reflect on their life, in a sense a start to address and acknowledge the work they need to do.
