This deeply engaging book will help you discover the unique shape of your life by asking yourself questions. Then, with the help of the Comfort Queen, you will discover how to reorient your life around your own desires and needs rather than around time-management tricks. A Comfort Queen rules her own life. She treats herself with the same kindness and respect as she does the people she loves. She has a healthy sense of humor about herself. Rest, self-nurturing, and harmony are her imperial rights. She keeps her eye on the unfolding path of her life and lives by what she treasures. Or at least she tries.
A Comfort Queen also knows that "balance" is not a realistic goal for realistic women. Having the perfect home, the perfect relationship, and enough quality time with your children and friends is a magazine article, not a life. Jennifer Louden and her Comfort Queen know that real life isn't about balance; it's about meaning!
Jennifer Louden, the best-selling author of The Woman's Comfort Book and The Woman's Retreat Book -- pioneering books on self-nurturing for women -- shows you realistic and fun ways to go inside yourself and create the rich, fulfilling, and sometimes slightly askew life that fits you.
