Having the courage to face life after life throws you a curve ball is difficult at the best of times. But when life throws a 3 1/2 ton tree on top of you and places you in a wheelchair, you barely have the strength to survive. Paralyzed from the waist down, Rosemarie Rossetti reached the depths of pain and despair. During the first weeks of rehabilitation she struggled to get her life back. Through her persistence and dogged determination, she learned many lessons that she has turned into rules to live by.
"Take Back Your Life!" is a collection of 20 syndicated articles that affirms the life lessons that Rosemarie has mastered and now shares with others.
Each chapter of the book takes the reader through a phase of Rosemarie’s development. This book demonstrates how to survive—and thrive. Rosemarie’s engaging first person style of writing immerses the reader in her struggle to regain her independence. By using her real-life examples and her insightful nature, readers quickly understand how each lesson can be adapted to their own life. You'll find yourself laughing, crying, and growing as you discover how you too, can live each day to its fullest.
"Life is too short to spend it being unhappy," said Rossetti. In nature where there is balance there is harmony. Through her "wheel of life" Rosemarie shows how people can get "caught up" in one part of their life and neglect the fun that life has to offer. "Take Back Your Life!" gives ideas on how you can analyze the segments of your "wheel of life" that need attention. Learning how to keep your wheel in balance will give you the get-up-and-go, the energy, and the enthusiasm for life that you never had before.
"If I was placed in similar circumstances I don't know how I could've survived," one reader says. "But now that I've read the book, I know that I can conquer the obstacles that I face every day." Another reader said, "Rosemarie’s words of courage and optimism will remain with you long after you’ve finished this inspiring book." Rosemarie Rossetti's powerful story will change your life, too!
