Summary
  • "[E]xplores the personal beliefs, hidden traumas, and social pressures that shape not just women's feelings about their bodies, but also their confidence, choices, and relationships."--Dust jacket flap
  • "A personal and exhilarating read on freeing ourselves from daily anxiety, lack, and discontent. It's a deep dive into what lies behind our self-criticism, whether it is about the size of our thighs, the expression of our thoughts, or the shape of our ambitions. And it's about stopping the search to fix ourselves by realizing that on the other side of the "Me Project" is spaciousness, peace, and the capacity to reclaim one's power and joy. This Messy Magnificent Life explores the personal beliefs, hidden traumas, and social pressures that shape not just women's feelings about their bodies but also their confidence, choices, and relationships. After years of teaching retreats and workshops on weight, money, and other obsessions, Roth realized that there was a connection that held her students captive in their unhappiness. With laugh-out-loud humor, compassion, and dead-on insight she reveals the paradoxes in our beliefs and shows how to move beyond our past to build lives that reflect our singularity and inherent power. This Messy Magnificent Life is a brilliant, bravura meditation on who we take ourselves to be, what enough means in our gotta-get-more culture, and being at home in our minds and bodies. Whether she contemplates what it means to shop for the impossibly lovely blue vest we don't need, or she guides a student to deeper insight, Roth's acute and luminous writing about what creates meaning, joy--and heartache--is in every line. And as she has previously done for readers with her eating guidelines, Roth provides potent reminders and exhortations--"touchstones"--to help us break the trance of discontent, quell the impulses of the past, and embrace our unique and often unsung potential."--Dust jacket
