What if you cared for your life the way the NICU cares for its patients?
Imagine standing over a newborn and whispering, "I hope you work your fingers to the bone chasing someone else's notion of the 'good life' until you're so exhausted you don't remember who you are or why you matter." It's unthinkable. Yet that's where many of us find ourselves as adults: depleted, feeling stuck, and certain that life's opportunities have passed us by. Isn't it time we treated ourselves with more care?
In this remarkable book of personal and professional transformation, Sue Ludwig, a neonatal therapist, shares how her tiny patients in the NICU (neonatal intensive care unit) guided her to step off her hamster wheel of existence and into a new way of living. Through real patient stories, reflection, and practical tools, she reveals how, by following the lead of these in her care, she found her way to a more vibrant, purposeful, and impactful life than she ever imagined possible--and how you can, too.
You can break out of survival mode, take charge of your energy, and redirect it toward development and growth--just as Ludwig's fragile NICU patients do. Moment by moment, baby step by baby step, chapter by chapter, you'll come to see that your energy and potential aren't gone. They're not even lost. They're simply waiting for you to reclaim them.
