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.


I found myself laughing, thinking and relating on so many levels.

Kacie tells her own story... but really she is telling the story of every girl who is trying to balance pursuing love with defining her own self-worth; every child trying to build healthy adult relationships with their family members; every young professional trying to understand the intersection of motivation and contribution.

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
