Description

When life has taken a difficult turn, our heart is aching and we're only just holding it together, it's easy to question everything. Who even am I, and how will I keep going? We need someone in our corner to travel this journey with us and help keep our spirits up.

Pip Lincolne wrote When Life is Not Peachy during some tough times of her own, in the hope that what she learned might help someone else feel a little better some day.

"Tough times dotted my life for a number of years, and there were moments I honestly wondered if I’d ever recover … the last few years included several deaths in the family, deaths of beloved pets, challenging mental and physical ill health and the breakdown of a difficult 23-year relationship. Oh my gosh it has been a lot. A lot to deal with. A lot of suffering. A lot of feelings," Pip writes.

This gentle guide for navigating loss, grief or other sad times, is a resource both for those who are downhearted and those supporting a loved one. With thoughtful advice on dealing with friends and family; healthy tips for eating and exercise when you don't feel like it; and a just-keep-yourself-going '101' for when you're feeling very low. It's the bolstering force we need to feel a bit closer to ourselves, or find a bit of peace.

"You may be experiencing lots of awful feelings and wondering what the heck you’re meant to do now. This book is here to help," Pip writes.

When Life is Not Peachy is the book form of a friend’s comforting hug, delivered by someone who has been there too and made it through to the other side.
