About the Book: Diary of a Modern Day Goddess

Back Cover Description:
A lighthearted account of one woman’s quest for enlightenment. In a humorous, fresh twist on the topic of spirituality, award-winning writer Cynthia Daddona shares her quest to become a modern-day goddess: a woman in touch with her joyful, feminine, and spiritual self. Her essays and advice offer inspiration, spiritual truths and chuckles that soothe the soul. Her insightful musings range from affirmations to meditations, from yoga to yogurt, from finding Nirvana to finding the perfect pump at Nordstorm. In every essay, you’ll find humor mixed with very deep understandings as a metaphor for how to live. Daddona does not claim to be a doctor, a therapist or the Roman goddess Venus, just an everyday woman with a never-ending quest to become completely in touch with her inner soul, inner comic and divine feminine spirit. Indeed, she shows us how humor is a beautiful tool in the never-ending quest for inner wisdom and reminds us that laughter is vital to every goddess.

“Diary of A Modern Day Goddess” was first published by Health Communications Inc, who also publish “The Chicken Soup for the Soul” series.
