    1. 2.5Seemed to include more negative thoughts or views than positive ones, which sort of undermined the whole 'have positive thoughts or views' purpose of the book. Nothing earth shattering but nothing too bad either (aside from huge exaggerations such as "if I walked as much as I talked about being fat, I'd be an anorexic!" - that's not how that works).

    2. I think someone brought this book for me for a past birthday. I found it on the bookshelf in our family room today. It looked like a fun, easy to read book so I brought it up to the tub with me early afternoon today. A few days ago I hurt myself trying to open the garage door. The door was stuck to the ice the day after a big snowstorm, but I just yanked it and felt a snap in side so have been dealing with a pulled muscle. (This makes me want to get the electronic doors fixed asap!) Anyway, a ho [...]

    3. Great read for those of us taught to save it all for the future. Motivates us to savor the good in life and pursue interests/talents we may be neglecting. Women often overlook their own interests in the name of looking after others. In reality, we aren't doing anyone any favors neglecting ourselves! We all need a healthy dose selfishness.Loretta helps you give yourself permission to do a few things for YOU and explains the cognitive distortions and excuses behind not honoring ourselves. Search f [...]

    4. I'm a sucker for Self Help books. I know that they all pretty much tell you the same things, but I'm drawn to them. Years ago I was drawn to this one, because I liked the title and the cute colorful pants on the cover. I read it, kept it on my bookshelf for a few years, and last night when I was all sad and depressed (mostly about a boy), I remembered that I had it and decided to read it. Its a pretty quick read and has helpful tips mixed in with humor, so you don't get bored. Now, I'm not sayin [...]

    5. I have a definite tendency to save everything for enjoyment in the future. I know this is silly, but still manage to have trouble breaking the habit. I'm enjoying Ms LaRoche's anecdotes (well, some of them - some of them are just glimpses into lives that I'm glad aren't mine or anyone I know) and am hoping that somewhere in here will be part of the kickstart I need to stop putting off eating the special holiday candy until it's no longer good and start just enjoying it right now.

    6. Great pick me up book if you ever need it. Good ideas for ways to be positive, stay positive, look at the brighter side of life (easier for some of us than others, on a daily basis). I had started this book once and put it down (must not have been the time for me). This time, I read it and kept with it. I would read it once a week and journal with it each time (gives you things to reflect on). I really enjoyed it and came away with ideas to use in my daily life.

    7. I was a bit disappointed in this book. I enjoyed her other oneLife is Not a Stress Rehearsal and while I didn't hate this one, I didn't like the lecture format (too much audience background noise) and the transitions were abrupt. There was also a lot of content that was repurposed. ReadLife is Not a Stress Rehearsal and skip this one. The party pants story and theme throughout the book is a good one, however.

    8. Recomand aceasta carte celor care simt ca au pierdut legatura cu lumea exterioara (prieteni, familie sau chiar si straini de pe strada, magazine etc.), aceasta fiind un ghid potrivit in a va invata de ce este imperios necesar sa mentineti o legatura indiferent de intensitatea acesteia cu semenii vostri. Inca un motiv pentru care merita sa aprofundati aceasta carte este de a invata cum sa traiti cu stresul transformandu-l in bucurie.

    9. This is a funny book, full of practical advice and great perspectives on life. I liked her book, Life is Not a Stress Rehearsal: Bringing Yesterday's Sane Wisdom Into Today's Insane World better, but this one was good, too.

    10. This book has a few good points, such as "80% of success in life is showing up". But otherwise, I find it tedious and the attempts at humor are super cheesy. The book is meant to be about living a positive & low-stress life, but it endlessly lists the stresses rather than focusing on the positive suggestions.

    11. Um, my mother gave this to me in hopes of something. I guess. Its an alright book. I don't normally read these sort of books honestly. Just a normal chicken-for-the-soul sort full of antidotes and advice. Will any of it actually benefit me? More than likely not. Something about taking advice from a 60-year old wearing a boa and big fat hat that doesn't match worries me.

    12. To be the best I can be!! If I don't like something that has been passed down to me or things I'm hanging on to, to not feel guilty if I give it away or sell it. To know that every day shoule be filled with fun. To love life everyday.She's a very funny lady, and I heard her book on CD, I laughed, I cried and I nodded my head when she was talking straight to my heart.

    13. This book is about letting go of all the serious stuff in life and remembering to laugh at ourselves in the process of life. One quote that sticks with me so far, "of course there is no formula for success, except perhaps an unconditional acceptance of life and what it brings." Arthur Rubinstein. Great perspective on life!

    14. Good Book, especially for people like me that were raised to save everything for the future. I now have permission to live in the present and put me first once in a while. So good I had to be on a wait list from the library.

    15. I love it. A great friend gave it to me and I continue to share the joy with others. She's funny, witty, insightful.I can't help but feel relaxed and happy. I often read section over and over just to remind myself that laughter is the best medicine. Highly recommend keeping it close by.

    16. Just the title of this book makes me laugh. The author is so fun to read. There are great quotes and fun stories in this book that make you want to live better. I used many ideas in church talks or lessons.

    17. I did not read the narrative and I liked the title so I bought the book I thought it would have been a book similar as Chelsea Handlers but it isn't. It is more of a self help type book. It was very good!

    18. This is my reading assignment for the winter break. It's to be discussed and reviewed upon returning to work.Quoted from the introduction, "We have a very short time on this planet, and we waste so many hours not really enjoying what time we have".

    19. My SIL gave me this with the caveat that it was very pep-talk and kind of trite. Which it was. I can see how some people might dig this sort of thing, but it's all common sense, really. Still, a few laughs here and there.

    20. To be honest, I didn't feel strongly about this book. Some of the main themes: don't sweat the small stuff, loosen up and recognize what you can and can't change. A little funny, a little redundant — but generally good-natured and helpful.

    21. LaRoche's mantra of think positive and think outside the box to get there all wrapped up in a lot of stale jokes. I have a friend (Jennifer Hart) that could take this material and add a dash of snark to make it really sparkle.

    22. There were a bunch of little tidbits in here that were inspiring, as well as good reminders for life. A nice perspective for life.

    23. Great tips! Anyone can benefit from reading just portions. Morsels of goodness. Would often cite in corporate company newsletter to motivate.
