Metaphorically Speaking Mockup

There’s a story to be Found Every Day

Metaphorically Speaking Cover

What do a child’s invention, one thoroughly spoiled dog, and the occasional business insight have in common? They all serve as sources of inspiration in this collection of personal reflections on success and the ongoing pursuit of happiness.

Metaphorically Speaking: Reflections on Happiness, Success, and Other Fictions is packed full of some of the best stories from the blog and lessons about life gained over the course of eight years.

In it, Allie Potts, weaves each lesson around her often humorous and relatable, early experiences writing while parenting. The result is a collection that encourages mindfulness and appreciation of the everyday, but above all, is sure to bring a smile.

Life happens. Might as well learn from it.
