What hap­pens when you’ve pushed your­self to the back burn­er for so long you don’t know who you are or what you want? Join author Susan Camp­bell Cross as she tack­les that very ques­tion – and shares some pret­ty insight­ful answers – in The FabY­OUList: List It, Live It, Love Your Life. Cross’s midlife dec­la­ra­tion of, There are so many things I thought I would have done by now!” led this sub­ur­ban soc­cer mom to reflect on what exact­ly those things were. So, pen and paper in hand, she com­posed a wish I had done” list that includ­ed fly­ing on the trapeze, skin­ny dip­ping, learn­ing to surf, going church shop­ping, tak­ing gui­tar lessons, run­ning a 5K, and becom­ing Googleable. But that was just the tip of the ice­berg. The list end­ed with num­ber 40, write a book.” That book is The FabY­OUList! It’s the heart­felt and inspir­ing sto­ry of how Cross came up with num­bers one through 39, and the often hilar­i­ous way she went about cross­ing them off. The read­er is invit­ed along on every escapade as Cross ven­tures out­side her com­fort zone and into the adven­ture of her life, ulti­mate­ly com­ing face-to-face with what she dis­cov­ers has been her biggest obsta­cle all along — herself.
