I have been known to go about life without reading instructions. In my not so humble opinion, it is the most sensible way to get things done. The instruction manual is consulted only in dire situations, which are most likely a direct result from not reading instructions in the first place.
I realize this a rather unique approach to life.
I attract ridiculous and crazy adventures. While still in utero, my mom tripped and ended up rolling down a somewhat large cliff at a beach on the west coast. We both shook it off like champs, but random things have been happening to me ever since.
Over a decade of my life was spent pursuing the ‘dream job and dream life’. After working my way up the corporate ladder and living the life everyone else wanted, I came to realize I wasn’t living at all. Finally, I admitted I wanted more out of life, so I went on an epic journey from being overweight and unhappy to healthy and fulfilled and started to live with purpose and passion. My greatest discovery was that I am better than I thought I was, and so are you.
Along with being a leadership coach and author, my proudest accomplishments include working with Mother Teresa's Missionaries of Charity in Calcutta, competing in a Figure Competition, and renovating our first home.

This book was hilarious, I didn't want to stop reading and I could totally picture myself in her scenarios (especially the skiing)! It also motivates me to keep on with my own journey in my own way! And hey, there is nothing wrong with OCD - better than being boring and normal! Two thumbs up!!!

I really enjoyed this collection of misadventures. Donloree's writing is honest, funny, and completely relatable. I especially empathized with her skiing story (which is so similar to my own experience), and her step aerobics story made me laugh out loud. Overall, this is a fun read that leaves you both admiring and shaking your head at the author's persistence.
