UPDATE JAN 15, 2011! CONGRATS KRIS on the launch of your new book:
There are people in our lives that can say just what we need to hear when we need to hear it… One of those people, for me, is Kris Carr. Kris Carr is my role model/mentor and her books and DVD got me through many rough moments as I took care of my mom during her battle with pancreatic cancer.
E.g. a quote from my overly-post-it-noted-well-loved copy of Crazy Sexy Cancer Tips- more rebellion and fire for your healing journey (containing-my last-card-to-mom-and-a-fave-photo-of-my-kids-ie.-her-grandkids):
Learn to live with a Stage IV cancer? How? How could I learn to live with cancer without thinking of dying every day? That’s when a lightbulb blazed on. To move through the fear, I had to change my focus and turn to the one thing that had always saved me in hard times: creativity. (p.3)
This is universal for any issue at any time. Her work still nourishes me. E.g. DEC 23 tweet:
Some days (actually sometimes several times a day) I battle fear- fear of the future, fear of money (lack thereof), fear of self-promotion, blah blah blah. But I look at a page in Kris’s book or view her documentary or visit her blog etc and will find something to lift me and bring me back to the moment. I ADORE this young woman. Thank you, Kris!
