Going through a breakup is kind of like getting off of a stopped train and moving on to a new one, unsure of how it'll get you where you want to go.
You can't look back to the train you are walking away from and second-guess yourself, thinking it might have actually moved you forward. You just have to keep going toward the new train.
A lot of times, people struggle with moving on--whether it was a choice they made or something life chose for them. They don't have strong, positive attitudes when they are sad, angry, emotional messes. If they want to heal their heart, they have to choose to be happy. The choice to be happy means taking action to get over the ex. The problem is most people have no idea how to really do so.
Since I know how difficult getting over an ex is from both personal and professional experiences, I decided to write a book that would give the newly-single a strategy for successfully handling the pain of a broken relationship. And I gave it a little Italian American flavor, since that's what I know best! As you may know, my second book, How To Get Over Your Ex A Step By Step Guide To Mend A Broken Heart Italian American Style,was published in March and is available on Amazon, Barnesandnoble.com, Booklocker.com, iTunes, and Kobo in both eBook and paperback. I am thrilled to announce that it was just confirmed that my book will also be sold at The BookMark Shoppe in my new neighborhood, Bay Ridge, NY.
To celebrate the book's launch plus my upcoming birthday, I am hosting a Book Signing/Birthday Soiree on Saturday, October 18th for anyone who has an ex, might have an ex, is Italian American, wishes they were Italian American, or can care less about being Italian American and just likes good books, booze, and birthday celebrations!
Publishing this book has meant a lot to me, and I would I truly appreciate if you can support me by attending this special occasion. Of course, you can also share this blog post with anyone who would like to attend. It is my mission to help people get over their past relationships and find a healthier, happier, love in the future. I look forward to promoting this book to the masses and creating personalized coaching programs for the special few who'd like to work with me during their life transition.
Speaking of life: It is just too short to be brokenhearted. Please come out and enjoy yours on Saturday, October 18th, from 6-10PM in Bay Ridge, NY.
The book signing party will take place from 6-7PM at The BookMark Shoppe and will start with a fifteen minute presentation that will include my reading of an excerpt from the book. The after-party will be held directly after the signing at the sexy and comfy Delia's Lounge & Restaurant, which is a short walk from The BookMark Shoppe. Delia's is located at 9224 3rd Ave, Brooklyn, NY 11209 on the corner of 93rd Street. There will be a cash bar at Delia's with complimentary hors d'oeuvres. The full menu will also be available. Please RSVP to Rachel@RachelRusso.com by September 18, 2014.
Cheers to La Dolce Vita!
