GO! is a Book for Women and Girls | By Marcia K. Morgan
Women and girls share a common epidemic: dream drain. Their goals and dreams are often put on hold or they quietly slip away. They adjust their dreams to fit their circumstances, rather than adjusting their circumstances to fit their dreams.
How do you recover lost goals and dreams? How do you move forward if you are in transition or feeling stuck? How do you figure out what you want to do with your life? The answer can be as simple as focusing on everyday objects. GO! How to Get Going and Achieve your Goals and Dreams, gives women and girls the ability to recognize how their dreams disappeared and develop new tools to get them back.
In four easy and fun steps, readers are guided on how to create the life they want by selecting and displaying special objects that represent their goals. Through mindfulness, repetitive visualization and tenacious planning, the goal objects (GO! for short) become an empowering compass to keep a woman on the path towards her goals. The goal objects become a metaphor of her life and a regular reminder of what she wants to achieve.
The Complete Guide on How to Pick a Married Last Name | By Marcia K. Morgan
Getting married? The number of decisions you have to make for the wedding, let alone decisions that will impact the rest of your life, can feel overwhelming. Taking on a life-long partner may also mean a new, life-long name. Changing the name you’ve had since birth is a big decision. Whether in same-sex or heterosexual nuptials, names play an important role and can impact children, career, identity, and ultimately, your happiness.
Should I Change My Name? walks you through how to choose a last name that’s right for you and your future spouse. Author Marcia Morgan examines the six most common married-name options, including separate, merged, linked, and newly-created names, and reveals the benefits and challenges of each. She weaves in personal stories from men and women who embraced their married-name choices and those who had regrets. The firsthand accounts illuminate how gender roles, religion, education, and family of origin can deeply influence name preferences.
Morgan shines a light on the little-known history of married names and reveals the meaning behind today’s naming traditions. She takes you on a journey to look at naming practices in other countries and cultures. The book’s information and guided worksheet simplify an otherwise overwhelming decision process so you and your partner can say a hearty “I Do” to the married name you choose.
