Regular Home-Start West Lothian contributor Marie Claire Donnelly has written her first book It Is What It Is: Universal and Everlasting Lessons from Lockdown
The book deals with how we all felt in Lockdown and the lessons learned to cope with this unprecedented situation we were all in.
Marie Claire says “Rather than despair over the restrictions and drastic changes to day-to-day life, I chose to view lockdown as a learning experience. To go deep within and find the silver lining in such an unexpected situation.”
The result of that experience is this delightful book full of both laughter and vulnerability, as well as journal prompts, affirmations, and heaps of love. With her unbreakable spirit and wicked sense of humour, MC shares not only her wisdom but also her loving heart as she walks us through her days of home schooling, learning to livestream on social media, mishaps with children and pets, and the importance of faith, self-acceptance, and ultimately, self-love.
“I am so grateful to myself for taking this time during lockdown to call out my old beliefs and stories and working on installing new, better-serving beliefs.” Marie Claire adds “I feel lighter, more positive and freer than I have ever done in my life. I look forward to inspiring others to do the same through sharing these lessons because every single person on this planet deserves to live an incredible life.”
