Sunshine Coast entrepreneur, speaker and mother-of-two Kim Morrison’s latest book The Art of Self Love sets out to remind us that self-love is much more than the occasional bubble bath or massage.
Ms Morrison has drawn from her personal experiences to develop a six-step process that supports people to stay in the presence of love, and she will share her insights in a fun-filled night of celebration at the Maroochy Surf Club.
Ms Morrison experienced incredible highs in the three years it took to research and write the book, but she also had equally emotional lows.
“Someone said to me this book is part autobiography, part inspiration and part workbook. What I tried to do was use my own life experiences as an example where other people could see themselves in that story,” she says.
“We’ve all had tough times, we all go through struggles and every single person we meet has a story that you would be flabbergasted and surprised with.
“My stories are just my stories, but it was very personal and very raw for me to reflect on the number of struggles and challenges I’ve been through myself and what I have learned from them.”
Ms Morrison says she hopes readers will relate to the book and it will become a touchstone for people to realise the importance of opening up conversations around mental health and self-care.
“If it helps one person to pull through a tough or challenging time with more courage and grace or if it helps one person to not take their life, that would be its intent,” she says.
Tickets to the book launch on September 24 include a signed copy of the book, drinks and canapes plus a night of fun.
