Overview

You're not broken for falling out of love with your career. In fact, falling out of love with your career might be the most honest and self-affirming thing you ever do for yourself.

KC takes you along for her roller coaster ride leaving a 25-year career in healthcare. With a believable emphasis on self-compassion, she lays bare her own story in a uniquely thought-provoking way.

Her unflinching self-analysis leads us to ask ourselves: what stories have we created about our own happiness and fulfillment in life? How can we make big changes without giving in to our fears and ruminations?

What noble excuses hold us back from evolving in our lives? What are our darker feelings trying to tell us and how might they help us to grow?

This book is part memoir, part mindfulness guide, all laced with comedy, drama and insightful bits of wisdom that are hard to forget or ignore. Falling Out of Love with My Career provides commiseration and inspiration for anyone going through or considering any variety of major life change.

From the foreword by Sherellen B Gerhart MD:

"KC's real-time, candid, messy and vulnerable expressions of her journey through change accompanied by real and confusing emotional angst help us know we are not alone, and everyone has to face transition. Life truly is unpredictable, and it hurts to make choices that involve others.

Being a hopeful person by nature as well as a "fixer of problems", I found her words to provide solace for my self-judgment and seeming internalized failures. The book is raw, honest, and timely."
