By the time she was in her late twenties, Tara Schuster was a rising TV executive who had worked for The Daily Show with Jon Stewart and helped launch Key & Peele to viral superstardom. By all appearances, she had mastered being a grown-up. But beneath that veneer of success, she was a chronically anxious, self-medicating mess. No one knew that her road to adulthood had been paved with depression, anxiety, and shame, owing in large part to her minimally parented upbringing. She realized she'd hit rock bottom when she drunk-dialed her therapist pleading for help. This is the story of Tara's path to re-parenting herself and becoming a "ninja of self-love." Through simple, daily rituals, Tara transformed her mind, body, and relationships, and shows how to fake gratitude until you actually feel gratitude; excavate your emotional wounds and heal them with kindness; identify your self-limiting beliefs, kick them to the curb, and start living a life you choose; silence your inner frenemy and shield yourself from self-criticism; carve out time each morning to start your day empowered, inspired, and ready to rule; and create a life you truly, totally f*cking LOVE.
