Shelly Slocum and her book, Love and Inspiration from Mom

On August 30th, join Shelly Slocum, author of Love and Inspiration from Mom, in our office or via Zoom. We will get some uplifting and fun insights into overcoming challenges in life. Shelly Slocum faced a huge challenge when her daughter went through a series of devastating, traumatic events. Shelly combined her love of self-help books and years of experience and wrote notes to her daughter and help her heal.

Shelly has gathered these insights into a best-selling book, bringing together quotes from famous people and her own words of wisdom. Here are just a few to get us started:

“The key to this inspiration and in life is to decide. Ultimately, you are in charge of your own white flag. You are the only one who decides when to surrender. Some people are fighters and NEVER give in no matter the circumstances. But for most of us, the longer it takes before you give in, the more you are building strengths to handle the next struggle you face. DECIDE today to be strong and keep fighting.” Love, Mom

“Strength does not come from winning. Your struggles develop your strengths. When you go through hardships and decide not to surrender, that is strength.” Arnold Schwarzenegger

“Fear erodes the trust we have in ourselves and what we’re capable of. Let go of that fear by tapping into who you are at your core, trusting your gut, pushing through what scares you, and doing it anyway. You will amaze yourself with talents, strengths, and abilities that you never knew were in you if you believe in yourself.” Love, Mom

We will record the Lunch & Learn if you cannot make it. RSVP here!
