Comic Strip Mama – Climbing The Stairway To Awesomeness!

Posted on Wednesday, August 21st, 2013

“How much loss and pain should one person have to take in one lifetime?”

Is that a rhetorical question?

Not really.  Not if you are going through, or have gone through, the kind of loss and pain that the author and cartoonist known as Comic Strip Mama has endured.  This is the exact question Tanya Masse, aka Comic Strip Mama, asked herself at a time when it seemed her life was nothing but loss and pain.

Of course, there is no answer to that question.

In Tanya’s relatively short life (relative to mine and most of my audience, that is), she has had more life-altering trauma than one would think a person could stand.  In just the first dozen pages of her new book, Stairway To Awesomeness!, you find yourself asking a similar question; “How much loss and pain can one person endure?”

Then you turn the page and witness the AWESOMENESS!

StairwayToAwesomenessBookCoverComic Strip Mama cartoonist and writer, Tanya Masse, shares her tragedy-to-triumph life story with the world and proves that no matter what adversity you are faced with, as long as you have a shred of sanity left, you CAN rise above and BE AWESOME!

Being a happy, positive person, and living a life of awesomeness is a choice.

In the face of adversity, it isn’t always easy to make this choice, but it is a necessary choice if you want to live life to the absolute fullest.

Written and illustrated with infinite wisdom and an original comic twist, Stairway to Awesomeness! is the ultimate 30-step self-improvement guide that will make you want to change your life forever, and encourage others to do the same.

This is NOT a comic book!  (Although there are comics in there that are Awesome!)

This is an honest to goodness real life self-help guide written by an honest to goodness real life regular person who suffered, endured, and then embraced AWESOMENESS!

In this delightful book, Comic Strip Mama walks you through the steps that have WORKED for her.  You will learn how to:

  • CHANGE your way of thinking about certain things you have been conditioned to believe.
  • STOP taking life SO SERIOUSLY.
  • Focus on the POSITIVE lessons.
  • Recognize the BLESSINGS.
  • Find the HUMOR in everything. Yes, even tragic things.

Tanya built this stairway in her life.  You can do it to.

Now, make the choice.

    Thank you SO MUCH for reviewing my book and supporting me throughout my journey! I love your post. It’s… well… remarkable! Just like you and your blog! I look forward to many years of laughing and sharing with you! =)

    Thank YOU, Tanya, for allowing me to join you on your blog tour. It was an honor to be included.

    Your book is incredible for many reasons. Unlike most of the so-called “professional” self-help books, your book starts by making a personal connection with all us ‘walking wounded.’ Life IS hard, and nobody escapes alive… literally, yes, but also figuratively speaking. I don’t know anyone who sailed through life without some kind of trauma. It’s so important to hear someone say in the same breath; “I’m happy! I’m alive! I’m Awesome! And I’m wounded.” Healing happens, and when it does, it’s wonderful to hear it shouted from the rooftops! Thank you!

    I, too, look forward to many more years of Comic Strip Mama, et al. I do believe you are well on your way to becoming one of the Remarkable Wrinklies! Although, you have some years to go for the ‘wrinklies’ part! But, we await your arrival on the other side of 50 and can only image the fun we’ll have together when you ‘cross over’ to join us old ladies!

    Hugs to you and yours!

    Hi Patti and thanks for the introduction to Tanya 🙂 I am about to pop over to her blog and see what’s up! But I already like her positive outlook on life…especially the not taking it too seriously part 🙂

    Thanks again Patti and I hope all is well. Take care and all the best.

    Thank you, Lyle, for stopping in and commenting. I know you’ll get a kick out of Tanya, aka She truly does strive for AWESOMENESS every day. Her cartoons always give me a little chuckle, shake of the head, or just a “yup.” The book is well worth the read. I bought the Kindle but am thinking I need the paperback now – I like highlighting stuff… and writing in the margins… 😉

    All is well with me and hoping you are doing well, too. We’ll be in Wisconsin for a few short days very soon. I’ll wave at you from the back porch when we get north. tee hee!

    Take care!
