This workbook helps people to understand that it's normal to face adversity in life and that in the end, everything will be just fine. The workbook also provides a safe space to release those feelings in confidence and dispose of them in a manner the reader chooses, releasing all emotions privately into the universe, and ridding them of all toxic thoughts and feelings.

The idea for this workbook originally appeared pre-pandemic during a lunch with co-authors Jackie and Liz and another friend. Jackie would often use a piece of paper to write out the day's frustrations, negative thoughts or life's problems, then destroy it. It was a method that she used for some time as it was private and safe from anyone else's eyes. In a world where people post everything on social media, this was a method to still vent and protect her inner most private thoughts. As Jackie shared the practice with Liz, a tenured practicing psychotherapist, she learned this was a method Liz also used many times, and the idea for the workbook was born.

“The workbook Leave Your Sh*t Here: Write, Release and Destroy by authors Liz Reed and Jackie Wallace basically uses catharsis therapy as a way of detoxifying the oftentimes destructive negative emotions and thoughts that we humans experience in our daily lives. The topics are based on years of the authors' collective experience with their clients and show a process that works like structured journaling for the overwhelmed mind. Using the workbook is also a form of stress management and self-expression that can help one focus and even grasp some purpose in the chaos. Through writing, non-judgmental self-awareness, purging, and destroying, we gain control of what triggers us and which should help us achieve clarity and a more peaceful state of mind. The workbook also serves as a confidential record and a safe place for a highly personalized journey to find one's own authentic self and thus should be treated like a diary entry.

Leave You Sh*t Here: Write, Release, and Destroy is definitely not your garden variety of self-help books, and I enjoyed reading and going through it mainly because the language used is your everyday, straightforward, down-to-earth talk that stays clear of technical jargon. It also has an appealing visual format for both texts, writing space, and pictures, and the use of cartoon-style illustrations definitely help engage the reader. The workbook also has sections to help the reader track any progress that one reaps throughout its activities. The overall tone of the material has a hopeful and optimistic mindset that tells the reader not to give up, and in spite of all the bad things, disappointments, or heartbreaks in life, Liz Reed and Jackie Wallace promise that "everything is going to be OK". The authors caution the reader that the book cannot replace professional help, and they urge everyone to seek such service if it is needed. Nonetheless, I heartily recommend this workbook to anyone who feels overwhelmed by life's crap and has the need to listen to themselves so they can refocus or get their act together to be a better, more emotionally and psychologically balanced person.”


Jackie Wallace is a serial entrepreneur, author, and podcaster. With over thirty-five years of leading and coaching people and over 250 interviews as a podcaster, I enjoy exploring how everyday people figure out their purpose and pursue it. My superpower is curiosity which makes me an avid learner. I have embraced my failures and learned to rewrite the narratives acknowledging the blessings in the lessons. In addition to business, I am a wife and mother of three.

Liz Reed has been a practicing psychotherapist for over 10 years. Liz also has her own podcast called Liz Life Guru. This is her second career; she was a teacher and gourmet chef for 30 years. She has embraced sobriety for 20 years and has a strong focus on addiction and reinventing your life as she has. She likes to say," I've been there and done that", Reed's openness to her own life gives her patients a relatability that most therapists don't have. It is her honor to share her story and help others on their path to a better life.
