"My Year in California: a journey toward midlife renewal" chronicles one brave woman's adventure toward self-discovery. This full-color travelogue has over ninety photographs documenting California’s vast cultural landscape. It’s a story about adventure, freedom and liberation. It’s also about challenge, struggle, conflict, and the universal longing to find our way home. Hart’s book won a silver award from the North American Travel Journalists Association and “best theme” Eureka! Travel Writing Award.
Hart, who is now a social media strategist for a travel app, defines the difference between a midlife crisis and midlife renewal. “A midlife crisis is when you feel stuck, frustrated and churn with emotional turmoil. Midlife renewal is a time in life when you realize that you can change the direction of your life and reinvent yourself. My book is about the journey or passageway between a midlife crisis and midlife renewal.”
Hart shares five lessons she learned from her year-long journey:
- If you want something to change, make a new choice
- Invest in your own education
- Always say yes to every opportunity
- Release attachment to outcome
- There is only one time and it is now
Baby boomers (78 million strong), seekers, and fans of history will be riveted to this courageous, page-turning adventure of both romance and heartbreak in the Golden State. Long after readers finish this ground-breaking book on midlife renewal, they’ll be asking themselves: How far would I be willing to go outside my comfort zone to discover who I really am? What new choice will I make? These personal answers may set readers on the path of self-discovery, and perhaps, their own journey toward renewal.
