Thirty inspiring women share the enduring lessons they
have learned from the defining moments of their
Life rarely works out exactly as we plan.
Rejection by a cherished friend, the onset of an unexpected
illness, struggle with body image and self-perception --
these experiences may challenge us, but our triumphs come to
define us. We find comfort, joy, tears, and laughter in the
wisdom, insight, and empathy we gain.
In Note to
Self, thirty dynamic women share their inspirational
stories with writer, director, and television and film
producer Andrea Buchanan. Celebrities such as Grammy
Award-winning rock star Sheryl Crow and Emmy Award-winning
actress Camryn Manheim join stuntwoman Stacy Courtney,
football player Katie Hnida, seventy- year-old HIV-positive
grandmother Beverly London, and
alcoholic-turned-interventionist Candy Finnigan to reflect
on their unforgettable stories of redemption. Punctuated by
tears and laughter, these poignant tales are full of
incredible strength, invaluable knowledge, insurmountable
odds, helpful survival instincts, amazing willpower,
humiliation -- sometimes on a national level -- and a hefty
dose of humor.
These unstoppable women emerged
stronger, wiser, and more successful from the often painful
and humbling turning points in their lives. While none of
their unique stories will fit neatly on a sticky note you
can tape to your wall, each of them carries an indelible
message that can.
