Do you love what you see in the mirror every day and just can’t imagine how your reflection can possibly improve? If so, this book isn’t for you. But if you struggle with your relationship with the mirror, you are not alone and this book can help. Do you feel ugly, unhappy and alone? Dawn Shaw can relate. Growing up with half her face nearly paralyzed, she could easily have found herself where Lizzie Velasquez did: labeled as “the ugliest woman on the internet.” Spared that distinction, Dawn nonetheless has experienced bullying, insecurity and rejection. When surgeries failed to significantly improve her damaged face, the mirror became a painful reminder of her difference. Friending the Mirror will help you overcome your fear and self-doubt so you can find your beauty, as both Lizzie and Dawn have been able to do; opting for a productive life full of activity, exploration and opportunity rather than living in isolation and misery. You, too, can enjoy a happier reflection.
Dynamic author and motivational speaker Dawn Shaw grew up with a facial difference. She addresses all ages about adversity, diversity, the gift of being different, bullying, following your passions, and living with a facial difference. Her inspiring memoir “Facing Up to It” shares her challenging journey. She followed that up with a Kindle eBook Friending the Mirror, Changing How You See Your Reflection, which helps people find beauty through happiness, and currently hosts the Friending the Mirror webinar series which addresses appearance related issues and insecurities. She is happily married, raises Icelandic horses, and has a passion for great rock/folk/celtic music.
This book is truly a little gem. So much wisdom is hidden in such an easy read. I found myself re-reading paragraphs, sucking in the
wonderful, motivating advice. Dawn had the unique ability to deliver her
counsel in ways that, while you may have realized a particular bit of
info or had it presented to you before, will hit just the right spot in
your critical thinking that will make you go "wow." Her insights are unique and
refreshing. I hope everyone will take the opportunity to add this
insightful tome to there collection and use Dawn's inspiration for their
own personal growth! -Amazon Review
