I received a copy of “How to Be Perfect Like Me” ($16.95 value) in exchange for this promotion. Any opinions expressed here are honest and my own.
Perfectionism is around every corner we turn today and so many are trying to achieve this unachievable goal. Life is not perfect nor will it ever be, yet we yearn for it. Dana Bowman fell into this trap…and soon right into recovery. She learned self-care is the key to happiness and not alcohol.
Bowman shares in her new book How to Be Perfect Like Me the ups and downs of life of alcohol recovery and of relapsing….some of it pretty and some of it not so pretty. She also shares the rawness and comical moments that take us by surprise to make us realize we are all good enough. And being good enough even if we don’t do it all in a “do it all” society.
This book is a busy one with lots of topics and running from here to there, but gets the point across that this is how life is and how a woman’s restless mind totally works. Was quoted that this was a clean book from language, but know this book does have profanity in it.
How to Be Perfect Like Me can be purchased at Amazon and Barnes & Nobles or anywhere books are sold.
