It is my pleasure to introduce, Tia Shurina, author of Everything and a Happy Ending, on day six of her tour with 4WillsPublishing. Tia is a member of RAVE REVIEWS BOOK CLUB and brings us a look at her memoir today!
Thank you so very much, Patricia, and your comfy blog, Room With Books. I’m so grateful to have been given some of your space to share about my book.
Since all of us authors need to publicize our works, I’m committed to staying on the course to helping EAAHE find its right and best place in the Universe. I recently did an interview with Winifred Adams on her MakingLifeBrighter.com radio show. It’s clear I haven’t yet found my best “sea legs” so to speak when it comes to speaking about the book. But, because I feel strongly that the message is so much more important than the messenger though, I share it here, as I wind down the tour…hopefully moving to more opportunities to not just write about it, but speak about it more, scary as public speaking is to me. I keep the faith that the more I speak, the more ease I will feel as I talk. I don’t think our demons, whatever they may be for each of us, or our fears, ever truly leave us. For me, I believe it’s in learning how to tame them a bit so that we can enjoy a happiness that is simply not possible when we cower to the fear and that is part of the reason we choose to come here and take this human journey. So, I look forward to learning how to do this next step better and stronger…just as I have embraced each of the steps along this roller coaster ride I decided to take for myself after my dad passed. I hope in the listening to it, and of course, in the reading of my memoir, another might feel inspired to go with the flow of their life, and to jump on that roller coaster also. It is sooooo scary at times…but also holds such potential for the most fantastical fun of a lifetime! Just remember to strap on your seatbelt because the ride can get a little bumpy sometimes!
I include the link for a listen for anyone who would like. I also include my answer here in text to the one question she asks all her guests invited on the show: “What makes your life brighter?” “It’s waking up every single day now, after only a few short years ago, having written myself into a corner so to speak in my life, to the beautiful sun that sparkles to give us the new day…that’s my new page…every day I get to create. Staying in the life I was in, with the very good man I was sharing it with, but wasn’t making me happy, I was very limited to what I was able to add each and every new day.”
Thank you all again for a wonderful first for me!
Everything and a Happy Ending, an award-winning memoir published by Mascot Books, details the soulful shift of a story as Tia shares her holy grail and trail she took to transform her life. After moving through her own metamorphosis she then helped an old friend, Ray Romano, move through his own transition, going with the flow very privately, but most profoundly.
“My journey almost destroyed me”. Almost. Boy, have I come to like that word. What a pleasurable word “almost” can be. You may almost be ready to buy my book. You may almost be ready to begin an exciting new journey of your own. You may almost be over that rainbow Judy Garland sings about. What great potential “almost” can hold if you can flip your way of thinking. Just imagine, controlled pessimism, doubt and fear flipped into blind optimism, faith and love.
That flip helped Tia move to a place where heaven meets earth…the pearly gates of her own happy ending. Changing the ending for her story brought a pure, precious peace of heart, but kicked her butt a bit as she made her way…committed to keeping her faith. The book was a plan C, maybe even D, but Tia was determined, after a dedicated intention and divine decision to start swimming more with the current of her life, instead of bucking that flow. Her ordinary, relatable story took an extraordinary, fantastical turn when she showed the Universe she was committed to her intention and her desire to be given an opportunity to make some new, different choices for herself. EAAHE is a memoir that shares the “how’d that happen?” and the “how’d she do that?” in a holy hope of helping others to see life in a new way.
EAAHE recounts 3 interconnected relationships and stories that enable Tia to love truly, deeply, and most of all, love herself. Three special circles she rounded with Ray, her dad, and her ex-husband. A woman’s full circle journey to learn how to really trust, how to “thine own self be true”, and then, the “real and true” love it led her ‘round back to. It shares how the power of love and a journey to intimacy helped her make a faithful flip which began a sacred circle and new chapter…one that would allow a different ending for a story she had begun writing for herself when she was much younger. One that Tia feels strongly will inspire other women of a certain age keep faith that it’s not too late to write a new ending for their own, as they embrace their history, not try to re-write it.
Tia is, most days, filled with joy. She is, every day, filled with peace. She looks forward to a happy ending each new day now, however it unfolds, whomever it holds, and whatever way the Universe molds, as she continues to create a new “happily ever after”, staying committed to rising above her fears, moving out of her comfort zones, and going with the flow of her life.
Will Tia Shurina give Ray Romano a “Happy Ending”?
