About The Book


Get Me Through....The Makeover of My Life is a book for all seasons of life. It will lead you through getting out of the places that you are stuck, picking up the pieces after disruption, and releasing yourself to dream again my the future. Get Me Through is path through life's most questionable moments.



The title of the book is purposely open-ended and ambiguous because most people are trying to get through. From Kindergarten to College, people are trying to get through school. Whether you are a high paid executive, entrepreneur, or occupying a cubicle, the daily grind of work and handling life issues is a reality. Still others are trying to get through the seasons of a relationship; the harsh winter or the warm summertime feel that relationships bring. 

On the other hand, the death of a loved one or the death of one’s self-esteem may seem like, to some, as trying to wade through a cloud of never-ending darkness. Ultimately, getting through is a part of the human experience. At some point, trying to get through is a part of everyone’s process, the only difference is each person’s process is tailor made. Even so, no matter what you are struggling to figure out, you are just trying to get through it with your character and sanity intact.

Thank you to WNL Book Tours for the work that they have done in support of my book!! I am excited about the tour and people getting to know me, in addition to, learning more about my book. It is truly a book that will touch on, what I have determined, are the three phases of life. Disruption, rebuilding, and releasing. Early twenties, middle age, and baby boomers will find themselves in one of these phases from time to time. Starting a career, getting married, having children, retirement....has the capacity to disrupt our lives. After anyone of those, the list is short just for the sake of time, we will find ourselves needing to rebuild. Once we have rebuild, then we can move forward with releasing ourselves from it and move on. One of the chapters in the book that I like is the one on Getting Unstuck (Chap. 1). The question in the chapter is how do you get unstuck? How do you move forward? In the chapter I address the power of positive words and having a great support system. Besides the aforementioned, we need to have trust that where we are, is not where we will stay. Get Me Through...The Makeover of My Life can be used by any and all ages because we are all going through something.

Hello Cedric,

Identifying where we are is one of the keys to getting us "unstuck" I believe once we determine this, we can push forward and move in the direction we are supposed to be in.

Wishing you all the best.

Cedric Nelms said...

Thank you Paulette! Yes, I agree as well. It means being willing to honest with ourselves and doing an introspective look at our lives.

Sometimes that's the hardest thing to do.

Yes it is hard! That is why one of the chapters is entitled, "A YOU Investment Account". It talks about taking the time to invest in you, which means that like an investment account that we have established for retirement, it will take time. It is hard to save for retirement when it is intentional and the return is so far off in the future. But it is worthwhile once you are able to enjoy it. We have to invest in ourselves so that we can learn how to love ourselves before someone else can love us.
