Now for my personal thoughts!
Barbara is a fascinating woman who I'm so glad I've met! E.Y.E.S. is an acronym for Eventually You'll Emerge Stronger. Barbara is the CEO and Founder of the organization. It's a self-esteem and self-empowerment group. She is a certified life coach and motivational speaker. My favorite Barbara quote is: 'If you feel that there is no one that loves you...you must take up the slack!'
Barbara's stories are heartfelt and sincere and they aren't always pretty. She allows us into her life by showing us exactly what she was thinking and feeling in those moments. They're wonderfully written and most of the time you can actually hear her talking to you in her humorous voice. I could even see the hand gestures! Such vivid writing!
There are also several spots in the book where pertinent factual information has been inserted. You can find anything from statistics to emergency hotline information.
