Raleigh, NC (PRWEB) July 21, 2006
In the indispensable female guide to life What’s a Girl To Do In A Big City If She Can’t Dance?, author Taylor Sparks takes a serious yet humorous look at the seven crossroads that most women come to in their lifetime and shows you how to recognize and acknowledge common areas of difficulty:
•How to love your body for the shape it’s in—right now
•The necessities of female relationships
•Heal yourself of the “pick-me syndrome” and have valued relationships with men
•Career stagnation and discovering your intentions
•When to seek council and why
As the founder of She-She/Poo-Poo Time Retreats, Taylor has shown many women how to enjoy themselves by doing absolutely nothing on her yearly retreats and offered them advice on relaxation and replenishment through her newsletter. Taylor uses her sense of humor throughout her new book, What's a Girl To Do In A Big City If She Can't Dance? A Seriously Humorous Look At The 7 Crossroads In Women’s Lives. A management and leadership training expert, Taylor meets women from all walks of life. She said she realized that when times get tough, she could feel sorry for herself or do something to change her situation. “There are two kinds of people in the world. There are the ones who say ‘good morning Lord!’ and those who say ‘good Lord, its morning!',” Taylor said. She chooses to be the former. “My intentions are to let women, grown women, know how important it is to take care of themselves, to put themselves first in their lives. Most of us are raised to be good wives, good mothers, good daughters, good sisters, good employees, good church goers and good neighbors. But in doing so, we do less and less for ourselves. We feel guilty if we take a day off and do nothing. Or to do something just for us. Through my book it is my desire to give women the resources they need to love their bodies for where they are, to discover their true intentions and to know when to seek council and to not try and do it all. I want them to know that we do not walk through this life alone,” Taylor said.
