Are You Extremely Hard on Yourself?
… Judgmental, Critical …
There’s nothing worse than knowing you’re a woman who’s smart, experienced, accomplished, normal, etc., yet extremely hard on yourself, finding that: you compare yourself (harshly) to others and then spiral down because you don’t measure up … Or you do more for others, which satisfies your love for giving, but leaves you aching for something for yourself …
Or worse yet, you ‘shrink’ in situations … or sabotage your dreams … Or if a mom, feel you don’t have a ‘handle’ on motherhood because you do too much, are always too tired to enjoy it, and still feel that you’re not doing enough or doing it right …
… Extreme judgment of self.
But unfortunately millions of women do this every single day. Why?
The Truth About Your Self-Critic
As you know, the self-critic is an ever present part of you. Your self-critic is the culprit who causes overwhelm, self-sabotage, hesitation, and holding back … the loud inner voice of your doubts and fears. The negative self-talk you hear constantly in the back of your mind.
Have a little (or big) snag in your day… and the self-critic ‘goes to town’ and can be relentless. Merciless. You can lose your entire day … being unproductive, unfocused, scattered, feeling down … even scared.I’ve spent thousands of dollars on seminars, read tons of self-help books, been a part of some incredible groups, developed my spirituality, and even with all of that valuable life work that advanced me, I would still find I was being extremely hard on myself. And my self-critic was asking, “Why aren’t I doing more?” … or claiming, “I should know better (because I had experienced all of this personal growth)!”
So I knew I had to address the issue of the self-critic and find a way to tame it in my day-to-day life!
“To wake up every morning in love with your life is a fantastic way to live! Maria Carter spells out clearly and simply how to make that happen.” ~ Marci Shimoff, New York Times bestselling author of Happy for No Reason
“Maria Carter’s book, Fall In Love with Your Life, will help you feel good about yourself. This book is pure inspiration! I dare you to read it and not fall in love with your life!” ~ Wally Amos, author of Positive Thinking, Blue Mountain Arts
I wanted a different kind of book. Something I couldn’t find. I’m not knocking other books, I’ve gained tremendously from them. I was looking for something specific and different. Here’s what I did find:
ISSUE #1 – Inspirational books … Motivational books … Journals … I found something I loved in this one… And something I loved in another one … but I had too many pieces. I felt scattered when trying to work with all of these pieces on a daily basis.
ISSUE #2 – I loved all the ‘positivity’ and inspiration I read in the books… but in my day-to-day world, once I put the book down, I would easily slip back to staying mostly in my head. Yes, I would be thinking inspired and uplifting thoughts and get great new insights, but I wanted to feel it in my heart. I wanted a way to help me easily get to and feel my heart, which is where I know balance and love reside.
Introducing the Ultimate Self-Nurturing Guide
So I created Fall In Love With Your Life, the book.
I wanted romance, fun and adventure … woven into my day-to-day. I wanted something feminine. I wanted to feel my heart.
I needed a structured way in my day-to-day to stay positive and on higher ground and get back easily to that higher ground if I slipped into the blues.
(By the way, I stand solidly strong and grounded, despite challenges of life all around me. Yes, the economy sucks and things don’t always turn out the way I plan and I’ve had set-backs. We all do. But I’ve been using the techniques in the book for years, and the proof is in my happiness quotient, which consistently stays pretty high.)
Romance the Self-Critic Within.
Expand Your Happiness. Shrink Your Stress.
Truth be told, Happiness really is feeling love—loving and being loved. So when you learn how to self-nurture, you’ll tap into the well of love inside of you. And when you do, the cravings, neediness, and struggles diminish for being heard, being loved, being valued … because you have self-nurtured. And the funny thing is, the happier and peaceful you are, the more you are heard, loved, and valued. That’s the secret here.
Fall In Love With Your Life is a unique way to connect with the self at the heart, the key to engaging more fully in life … to feel love … to let love in … to receive abundance more fully.
Fall In Love With Your Life begins with inspirational stories, quotes, and how-tos, demonstrating why every woman must take a few minutes each morning to write a Love Note to herself. The 365 Love Notes follow, each day starting off with an inspirational Love Quote, a starter phrase to get you going (keep you from writer’s block), and then space on the page for you to complete the Love Note in your own words. Daily Love Notes are designed to help you more easily and intimately connect with yourself and help you become a better receiver. You or your self-critic won’t be in the way, and ultimately you’ll come to the place where you’ll value yourself enough to say, “Yes, I deserve this–to love my life.” Love Notes from you to you, will help you love you–sometimes one of the most difficult things to do.
Fall In Love With Your Life supports you to consciously create your own life and legacy vs. losing yourself in day-to-day life, forgetting your true identity. Fall In Love With Your Life shares daily, how valuable you truly are … and how much you deserve living a life you love.
Here’s what’s in store. I share ways to support you in how to:
“Rare, indeed, is the self-help book that successfully connects common sense to our soul’s purpose. Fall In Love With Your Life is the one romance upon which every person who embarks will find their lives are never the same again!”
~ Catherine Lanigan, author of Romancing the Stone, The Jewel of the Nile, Writing the Great American Romance Novel, The Evolving Women: Intimate Confessions of Surviving Mr. Wrong, and The Christmas Star
“This book teaches women how to feel desirable in all areas of their lives. Inner beauty is the key to Maria Carter‘s tools for success. If you are willing to do what is outlined in this book, your life will be transformed.”
~ Louise L. Hay, author of You Can Heal Your Life and Empowering Women

When you actually DO this specific type of journaling—Love Notes, I believe you will be amazed at what you discover and what different results you create in your life.
It’s NOT a lazy-woman’s guide to loving your life. You actually MUST take 1 to 5 minutes a day to pick up your pen and write … to find the ‘magic’ in writing Love Notes. The magic of feeling your heart, of feeling love. Five minutes a day is a miniscule price to pay, for exponential results. The techniques work. But if you’re lazy and you want results without doing anything, then please don’t order the book.
You’ll find that Fall In Love With Your Life is a quick read in a very different way. In the beginning of the book, we explore why the Love Notes, Love Letters, and strengthening your relationship with yourself is so important. We also cover how to get the most out of the book. Then almost immediately you’re on to Day 1, which, like any morning’s Love Note, will only take moments to complete. On Day 1, you can immediately start to open up to creativity, receiving, and new perspectives …
This ISN’T just a bunch of happiness hullabaloo with no down side.
Not every Love Note will turn your life into bliss …
Our goal here is to bring romance into our life in the way we respond to and live more harmoniously with our self-critic. What I learned on my journey of romancing my own self-critic is that like all romances, it takes consistent and loving effort. My daily Love Notes helped me gain momentum and transform my negative into powerful feelings that bring me into balance.
Sometimes you have to figure out what will reach your Self-Critic. It may be one Love Note or Love Letter, read over and over again. It may be something in the Romancing Immersion Steps. It may be one or a combination of Emergency Measures. It may be some insight, a letting go, encouragement, or inspiration gained in your (optional) ‘All My Buds Mastermind’ discussions built around the themes and progression in this book.
