Notes to Self: Life’s instructions not included
A weekend alone at her parents’ house could turn out to be a life-changing event for forty-two-year-old Cassie Quinn.
She discovers a journal she wrote in her early twenties, and as she relives her past she’s compelled to compile a list of her “hindsight’s 20/20” lessons for the younger women in her life—her teenaged stepdaughter, Becca, and her twenty-something coworker, Lexi.
She wades through cringe-worthy ex-boyfriends and miserable attempts at climbing the slippery corporate ladder, both of which unearth memories of meeting her husband, Luke. As Cassie develops an unexpected friendship with his ex-wife, she struggles to unleash her passion for art, banished to the back burner decades ago.
Cassie searches for the confidence to go after her lifelong dream now, knowing tomorrow isn’t promised. Could she once and for all stop wondering, What if . . . ?
Self-deprecating and relatable, Listful Thinking provides a walk down memory lane for those on the other side of twenty-something, while offering guidance and inspiration to those who have not yet been there and done that.
