the story of a jaded, hopelessly romantic, health-conscious party girl's search for meaning

Kacie Main woke up on blurry Saturday morning, put a hand to her throbbing head, and started to recall the events from the night before.

Oh shit, she thought as the evening played back spottily in her head like a Netflix movie during a storm. I can’t believe I made out with David. She pulled a pillow over her face and tried to go back to sleep, not yet ready to face those consequences.

By most definitions, Kacie lived a social, fulfilling life. She had a good job, great friends, solid family. Aside from the thirty-something and single combination, her life was picture perfect. But that was just a filter, like how the right Instagram filter can hide the circles under your eyes. The unfiltered Kacie was restless… uninspired… uncomfortable. Something had to change - that drunken make out with her not-single good friend was the straw that broke the camel’s back. So she gave up men for Lent– a 40 day cleanse in an attempt to figure out why she felt unhappy in her happy life.

My Story

I spent years successfully wandering through jobs but always trying to figure out “what I want to be when I grow up.” As my career path zigged and zagged, writing was always there, lurking in the background patiently waiting it's turn.
Then at 32 years old, the patience ran out.

I didn’t sit down to write this book. It jumped out of me at arguably the worst, best, most confusing, and most liberating time of my life. 

And suddenly you know: It’s time to start something new and trust the magic of beginnings.
— Meister Eckhart
