Tonight's 10 p.m. wish: that my newly-published book will help at least a few people struggling with too-consuming jobs\u00a0find a path to a happier, more balanced\u00a0life. I can\u2019t believe this milestone has arrived, but my book is now officially published! Know When to Run: Lessons from the diary of a Gen X mom," is now available in paperback and Kindle edition on Amazon. What a surreal moment for a first-time author! This project started on\u00a0June 30, 2010, when I had one of the worst days of my career. I got thrown a disturbing curve ball while on maternity leave with my youngest daughter, Daisy May. I had to make a quick decision between two bad options. I felt stunned, hopeless and trapped. My husband Ian encouraged me to start writing every day as I juggled a frantic evening news schedule that made it impossible to be the kind of mother I wanted. I had no idea when I started writing what a life-changing year I was about to document. That diary is like a video camera left running while a tornado passed overhead. Thank goodness,\u00a0by the end of that dramatic year, an unexpected door opened that helped me take a leap of faith into a more sane and balanced life. Over the last several years, I have adapted that diary into a book: \u201cKnow When to Run: Lessons from the diary of a Gen X mom.\u201d\u00a0 (Click here to purchase a copy.) \u00a0I left the diary entries intact, but added lessons that I can now see in hindsight, that I wish I had understood back then. When you buy a copy, share the social media links along with your personal comments, recommend\u00a0the book\u00a0to your friends and colleagues, and add reviews to the Amazon site, you are helping support a new author by increasing the chances of getting this book into the hands of a larger publisher and a wider audience. You're also making me incredibly grateful for my network of incredible friends, colleagues, and supporters! I have a sequel in mind, but I am still working through the ideas. In the meantime, I would love to hear YOUR stories of making your own leap of faith to leave a toxic situation for greener pastures. Did you have a hard time knowing when to run? When you knew it was time, how did you do it? And how has your life changed? Thanks for taking interest in my work, and for helping me spread the word about this book. I will also be selling and signing copies on August 29 from 11 a.m. - 3 p.m.\u00a0at the Back2School\u00a0Bash presented by Indy's Child and Hamilton County family\u00a0at the Monon Center in Carmel, Ind. Come say hello! Your support, and the support of Indy\u2019s Child, means the world to me. $1 from the purchase of every copy of \u201cKnow When to Run: Lessons from the diary of a Gen X mom, will be donated to Riley Children\u2019s Foundation, where Trisha now happily works in marketing communications.
