What if you could, with a little effort, finally find a path to self-love that suits you specifically? A path that will no longer lead you back to exes? A path that will no longer allow you to feel "stuck" in the same kind of poisonous relationships and situationships as everyone else around you? A path to finding out what it truly means to love YOUR self in such a way that it superchargers the love you give to others? We hear it and read about it all the time: "Love Yourself First." But HOW is the question that we all ask ourselves. Horacio Jones has expanded on the ideas that love comes in over 7 billion forms; we all learn and experience love in our own languages, and therefore our paths to healing and accepting ourselves are in different languages as well. There is no one-size-fits-all definition of love. Love is neither right or wrong, it just "is." And the purpose of this book is to shed light on the importance of living by not only your own love language, but also your own healing language. In "I Am The Love Of My Life," Horacio Jones provide you with the enlightenment on finding YOUR own unique path to love YOUR own self. A must-read for anyone whose ever had one of those "why is it so hard to love myself"" moments of self doubt.. This book will give you both new perspectives on self-appreciation principles as well as tactical thinking for figuring out what your own unique version of self-love looks like and how you can get there. Horacio Jones does an amazing job at speaking the truth in regards to relationships, situationships and love. This is a must read especially in today's society of "I don't want a relationship, but I don't want you to be single," and the very confusing "we are exclusive, but not officially together" type of dating. Welcome to the SECOND book written by Horacio Jones.

Genre: Biography & Autobiography
An unflinching memoir by a working nurse As a child, Mary Jane Nealon dreams of growing up to become a saint or, failing that, a nurse. She idolizes Clara Barton, Kateri Tekakwitha, and Molly Pitcher, whose biographies she reads and rereads. But by the time she follows her calling to nursing school, her beloved younger brother is diagnosed with cancer, which challenges her to bring hope and healing closer to home. His death leaves her shattered, and she flees into her work, and into poetry. Beautiful Unbroken details Nealon's life of caregiving, from her years as a flying nurse, untethered and free to follow friends and jobs from the Southwest to Savannah, to more somber years in New York City, treating men in a homeless shelter on the Bowery and working in the city's first AIDS wards. In this compelling and revealing memoir, Nealon brings a poet's sensitivity to bear on the hard truths of disease and recovery, life and death.

Welcome to the FIRST book written by Horacio Jones. If you find yourself questioning the purpose of the heartache that finds you, look at the way you allow people to love you. This vision does not exclude self-accountability. More often than not, truths expose just as much about ourselves because we are responsible for what we tolerate and how we react. Move from the cloud of defensiveness and be receptive to the idea that you enabled bad behavior by being faithful to it. We all have habits of romanticizing the time in an effort to negate the inconsistent love. Most of us fall into the safety net of familiarity in fear that the freedom of real love does not exist. This is self-entrapment, but love is emancipating. Horacio surrenders his own experiences as a reminder of our common ground then proceeds to release us to where we hope to be. The discomfort that you may feel is the process of being removed from your comfort zone, so you may experience the newness that you were blocking all along. If you want to do some soul searching, or to hear something you already know, but needed confirmation that you weren't going crazy, and that more people than you think, relate to your situation, then this book is for you. Broken Vision is just observations, experiences, clarity, and reality. And I believe that no matter who you are or what background you have, there is something in this book that will resonate with you and leave you "thirsty" to read more.

A NEW YORK TIMES BESTSELLER More people than ever before see themselves as addicted to, or recovering from, addiction, whether it be alcohol or drugs, prescription meds, sex, gambling, porn, or the internet. But despite the unprecedented attention, our understanding of addiction is trapped in unfounded 20th century ideas, addiction as a crime or as brain disease, and in equally outdated treatment. Challenging both the idea of the addict's "broken brain" and the notion of a simple "addictive personality," The New York Times Bestseller, Unbroken Brain, offers a radical and groundbreaking new perspective, arguing that addictions are learning disorders and shows how seeing the condition this way can untangle our current debates over treatment, prevention and policy. Like autistic traits, addictive behaviors fall on a spectrum -- and they can be a normal response to an extreme situation. By illustrating what addiction is, and is not, the book illustrates how timing, history, family, peers, culture and chemicals come together to create both illness and recovery- and why there is no "addictive personality" or single treatment that works for all. Combining Maia Szalavitz's personal story with a distillation of more than 25 years of science and research,Unbroken Brain provides a paradigm-shifting approach to thinking about addiction. Her writings on radical addiction therapies have been featured in The Washington Post, Vice Magazine, The Wall Street Journal, and The New York Times, in addition to multiple other publications. She has been interviewed about her book on many radio shows including Fresh Air with Terry Gross and The Brian Lehrer show.

The first major biography of the Carter Family, the musical pioneers who almost single-handedly created the sounds and traditions that grew into modern folk, country, and bluegrass music. Meticulously researched and lovingly written, it is a look at a world and a culture that, rather than passing, has continued to exist in the music that is the legacy of the Carters—songs that have shaped and influenced generations of artists who have followed them. Brilliant in insight and execution, Will You Miss Me When I'm Gone? is also an in-depth study of A.P., Sara, and Maybelle Carter, and their bittersweet story of love and fulfillment, sadness and loss. The result is more than just a biography of a family; it is also a journey into another time, almost another world, and theirs is a story that resonates today and lives on in the timeless music they created.
