I received this lovely email the other day from Andrea, and I thought it was very inspiring – she has kindly given me permission to post it here:
I am not a person who writes to strangers online but your book Get Your Shit Together was calling to me loudly in our small town of Wanaka in New Zealand where I live and I loved it.
Was reading it at 4am and was up at 5am tearing my house apart Feng Shuitting all over. I have been stuck in a rut for a while and thinking about what I needed to do and this was just the ticket.
I don’t have twins but I do have a rather large house, a vineyard , a husband who loves to invite people stay and a small rescue JR who is obsessed with me, and I deal with it all on my own.
If I was younger, piece of cake, but starting to slow down just a wee bit nearly my 60th birthday but absolutely love it all.
You are right you have to learn to love what you have chosen and I applaud your sense of humour which is pretty much on par with mine. It’s what keeps us sane, young and alive.
Thank you for sharing your crazy philosophy. I am flat out telling my girlfriends to get to get their shit together also.
All the best

Well done Andrea. You have scored 10 out of 10 on the gyst-ometer for totally nailing the principles of the book: Action over talk and learning to love what you have chosen.
