Book Review: Happinest by Judy Holland

Happinest, Finding Fulfillment When Your Kids Leave Home by Judy Holland

Book Review

I am honored that I was asked to endorse the book, Happinest by Judy Holland. The photo is of me holding my pre-released copy of the book – so much fun!

I enjoyed reading the manuscript, months ago, and look forward to diving back into the book, which is available for purchase now. It also has been rated one of the 6 new Self-Help Books for Better Living by AARP.

Your Empty Nest Coach, Christine, holds Judy Holland's book: Happinest, Finding Fulfillment When Your Kids Leave Home

HappiNest: Finding Fulfillment After Your Kids Leave Home is a valuable resource for empty nesters. Judy Holland has expertly curated interviews, quotes, research studies, and statistics to comfort, inspire and encourage those of us who are heading into or who are in the empty nest. ~Christine Maziarz, Your Empty Nest Coach

No matter where you fall in the empty nest journey, there is something of value in this book for you. Judy covers immense topics with well-researched information within each one:

  • Finding Yourself
  • Empty Nest Relationships
  • Guiding Your Fledglings
  • Words of Wisdom

Additional Information:

Publisher: Rowman & Littlefield

# of Pages: 242

This is my first book review using a rating system. I’ve landed on “happy chicks” as my rating guide. A book may receive up to five happy chicks from me. Happy chicks, for me, means both happy mothers and happy children (of any age). I’m pleased to give this a five out of five happy chicks rating.

A click on the photo will take you to a non-affiliate Amazon Link.

64: Becoming the CEO of Your Life Part 1 of 5: Meet Your Protector

64: Becoming the CEO of Your Life Part 1 of 5: Meet Your Protector

Are you ready? 

I am thrilled to share this series with you! This “CEO of Your Life” topic has been over a year and a half in the making for me. I had it before I found my empty nest niche! This podcast and working with clients has allowed it to brew up over time – talk about a simmer!

I will be sharing this concept with you, in small bites, over the next few months.

I expect a few things about this will change over time, as I’m finding that as I prepare the scripts, verbalize concepts, and share these concepts with clients, I develop nuances, memory tactics, and more. 

So much fun! 

In all honesty, it is a bit unsettling to put it out there. At the same time,  had I not started the podcast, I wouldn’t be here today, so this leads me to share more with you now than feels comfortable, knowing that for each level of imperfection and discomfort put out in the world, the more clarity I have in my purpose. 

Thank you for joining me on this journey. 

In this episode, I introduce you to the idea of your protector. 

Protector is like the security guard for your house. Protector arrived in my imagery as I read through The Power of Now by Eckhart Tolle and began to form as I thought through how I envisioned my Ego. So, hopefully, it will help you to understand the Ego better (although I’m not sure it is precisely the way Eckhart would see it) it resonates with me and has been resonating with my clients with whom I have shared.
