Update: Cupo will present his book on Thursday, Feb. 21 at the Clark Library. The program begins at 7 p.m. in the Ayers Room.
Clark resident Michael Cupo will speak about his memoir and self-help book, "It's Monday Only in Your Mind." Mr. Cupo seemed to have it all, but he found himself addicted to drugs, alcohol, and gambling. Equal parts heart-wrenching memoir and an easy-to-follow guide for personal growth, It’s Monday Only in Your Mind offers a startlingly fresh interpretation of the Twelve Steps used by many programs. Copies of the book will be available for purchase. This program is sponsored by the Friends of the Clark Library.
Original Story, Dec. 2012
Press release submitted by Michael Cupo.
Michael Cupo thought he had everything he’d always wanted: a beautiful wife, two wonderful children, a nice house, and a great job. By all outward appearances, he’d made it. He ought to have been one very happy person.
But Michael felt he was not good enough ever since he was a child, and as an adult he found himself addicted to drugs, alcohol, and gambling—and his behavior was killing him and harming those he loved.
Just published by Balboa Press, Cupo’s It’s Monday Only in Your Mind: You Are Not Your Thoughts uses his own, emotional personal experience and reinterprets the 12 Steps used by many programs to help us all live better.
In this astonishingly inspirational book, Michael shares the story of his journey of inner discoveries—with all its false starts, road blocks, relapsing, and ultimately, an overwhelmingly uplifting state of surrender, acceptance, grace, and personal peace.
Equal parts heart-wrenching memoir and an easy-to-follow guide for personal growth, It’s Monday Only in Your Mind offers us a startlingly fresh interpretation of the Twelve Steps used by many programs. Here is a valuable toolkit for anyone interested in enhancing their spiritual life, repairing their relationships, finding calm, and attaining an inner sense of well-being.
Included also are dozens of Michael Cupo’s original, much-cherished Daily Messages, which he shares via text message and E-mail with his ever expanding circle of support, a growing community of fellow seekers around the world.
It’s Monday Only in Your Mind explores life’s deepest questions (as well as recognizable real-life issues) facing everyone, whether you want to enhance your spiritual life or not. It holds the vital power to transform all of our lives each day in the most profound of ways.
