Author Seeks to Help Readers 'Befriend their Mind, Body and Spirit'...

Inspired to help others get through their personal struggles, Cathy Courtney illustrates with her poetry how a deep crisis can hold gifts of new levels of purpose and enthusiasm in her new empowering collection entitled “I Say Yes: Reclaiming Respect and Love for Life” (published by Balboa Press). The book is available for purchase at:

Precipitated by the ending of her decades-long marriage and drawing on her life experiences to find simple, practical solutions for the “big makeover” she was facing, Courtney’s poems track her journey through the collapse of self-confidence to an entirely new level of respect and love for herself and the world around her. The poems demonstrate how Courtney completely reframed her life by listening carefully to her intuition and fine tuning the myriad of choices that made up her day. She motivates others to be aware of their own inner wisdom and encourages them by saying, “You can do it.”

“I want readers, especially women, to know that they can do it — they can get through the stuff of their lives,” Courtney says, adding “That they are not alone; they have support and encouragement; (and) that they are much nearer to finding the answers than they realize.”
