DETAILS ABOUT THE JOURNEY
Why is the topic so important?
What we do in our everyday experiences brings about important life lessons. We’re living inside the topic each day we inhale anew breathe. In These days and times, toxicity has settled in the environment. Just think about it: every day we wake up we’re on the battlefield fighting a war. And just feeling where there’s: good against evil; sons against fathers; daughters against mothers; nations against nations; drugs against diseases; and the list goes on and on.
Over three decades, Norstrom has unmasked the levels of relationships:
pain; abuse; emotions, diseases; work environments; trauma;
and its poison of unforgiveness. In the artistic world, it is those literary creations that demonstrate a measure of personal growth that magnifies those hurdles conquered - from darkness to survival, even her release from incarceration.
While growing and blossoming, she has maintained a healthier lifestyle . . . staying free of unhealthy relationships. Through her experiences, Norstrom has encountered a complete metamorphosis ─ releasing one identity for another. Living inside this transitional lifestyle she states, “I see myself as that long-blooming, rich flower waiting to attract those butterflies. It is there, I’ve come full circle having realized the dangerous effects of toxicity."

I purchased the book to be supportive of a phenomenal author. Little did I know it would offer me the support that I can harbor and share with anyone who finds themselves negatively impacted by toxic, relentless and overwhelming life challenges. My husband stated, " Nina" brings the "LIGHT" to all she encounters and it is TRUE! She is a strong woman that has shared her journey with us in order to help us keep pressing on when we are at our lowest crevices of life. Turning her pain into power to help others! - Way to go Nina! I could not put the book down until I had finished it.
"Terms of Endearment ain't got nothing on "Not a BluePrint" This should be a MOVIE!! (I could feel China's presence while I was reading the book)
About to curl up with your second book,"Mirror Mirror". Can't wait for the 3rd book to come out!!
Not a Blueprint: It's the Shoe Prints That Matter
I’m exceptionally appreciative to the readers who have shown interest in my work. Hopefully, you will enjoy this story and agree that its reading heightened your awareness and knowledge. There is no life without a relationship of some form or another. To breathe brings on a relationship with life. And when touched by a disease, its manifestation gives us a relationship with toxic invaders. No parent or child should have to endure a battle without the ammunition to strike back. Your support in purchasing this book will help gain an edge in the fight against toxic relationships.
