Stop signs are a pause in the journey. Some are unique. Some are not. We all have them. It’s the unexpected when hope seems absent.


Life Disrupted: Finding Your Way Forward When the World is Upside Down is a non-fiction book written in the shadows of the Covid-19 pandemic by a Gen-X working mom. Author Tracy E. Baldwin shares her journey through one of the most overwhelming and mentally taxing times in the past 50 years.


In this book, discover:
- The importance of listening to your body, and how to
improve your mind-body connection
- Why we are not meant to be the Lone Ranger, and how to
build your own support team
- How to create your own toolkit to get back up when life
knocks you down, and live your best life


Tracy Baldwin’s book offers support for those suffering from burnout, anxiety, and/or depression. Life Disrupted: Finding Your Way Forward When the World is Upside Down shares how she and other high-achieving, brave women recalibrated their definition of success to move past life’s stop signs, rise again renewed, let go of fear and shame, and continue the journey more resilient, present, authentic, hopeful, and content.
