Sharon Wallen will visit City Lights Bookstore on Saturday, July 9th at 3 p.m. She will present her book, Hatched: How Nine LIttle Chicks Cracked My Shell. Imagine yourself in the midst of your busy, modern life. There you are - overwhelmed, perhaps even teetering on the edge of exhaustion - when your child asks to hatch a bunch of chicken eggs. Your blood pressure instantly skyrockets when you think of adding even one more thing to your list ... and a quick No falls from your lips.
But what sort of miracles might spring forth if you said Yes! instead?
In this memoir, the author shares 12 powerful lessons that flowed from a transcendent moment of Yes! Join her as the first cracks appear in the confining shell of her normal routines, preprogrammed expectations, and limiting beliefs. Share in a refreshing shift of perspective as the story unfolds, one that allows her to create a new life of greater presence and purpose.
Be prepared for these insights to wake you up to new choices in how you think, how you show up, how you parent, how you eat, how you love, how you make decisions, and how you let go. Formerly published as What I've Learned From Chickens, this expanded edition also tackles the tough issues of addiction and divorce.
We all have more power than we think to live our best life. Let this delightful and authentic story inspire you to begin to live yours.
