LACONIA — Having worked as a nurse, teacher and fitness instructor, author Gina E. McGuire found herself saying/writing motivational phrases to help others get unstuck and reach their optimal potential.
In "Are You Full of S.H.I.T.(Senseless, Harmful, Intrusive Thoughts)?: Go from Crappy to Happy" (published by Balboa Press), she has collected all of her motivational phrases and now presents them to anyone who needs a quick pick-me-up.
"This book helps readers monitor the food for thought that they use to fuel their brain," says McGuire. "It is a nutritious diet of positive, inspirational and motivational messages that improve their mental health and take them from crappy to happy."
As readers progress through the phrases, they encounter all of the human condition, from procrastination to pessimism, with insights on how to successfully navigate every issue that enters their lives. The book allows readers to start anywhere to help quell what ails them.
An excerpt from "Are You Full of S.H.I.T. (Senseless, Harmful, Intrusive Thoughts)?":
"Holding on for dear life? Maybe you're clinging to something or someone that needs to make a graceful exit. It's time to relax your grip. You can't catch something better if your hands are already full. Whether it's a job, a relationship, or even a stage of life, knowing when to let go and move on shows vision, poise, and belief in the future. Think back on your own life for a moment. How many things that seemed bad at the beginning turned out to be some of the best things that ever happened to you?"
