She Recovers Every Day Book

Practical tools to face life’s challenges, opportunities to reflect, and exercises to connect to one’s truth.

Beyond Chocolate

The Sweeter Side of life

To design a life that is on the sweeter side, means we are living and creating  life the way we want regardless of past or future experiences. This demands that we face our fears with our full expression and do the things we want to do… now. No more waiting. 

In Beyond Chocolate: The Sweeter Side of Life, readers are taken on a journey of introspection for self-discovery, reconnection, and growth. 

What to Expect

“Life is like a box of chocolates.
You never know what you’re gonna get.”

~Forrest Gump ~

We love Forrest Gump’s outlook on life.

Forrest implied in this famous quote that life can, and will, take unexpected twists and turns. Regardless of the challenges before him, Forrest never thought of himself as disadvantaged. No matter what happened, he learned to make the best of it and do what he could to inspire others and spread joy and happiness. This concept mirrors the authors of this book.

We wrote the book in two parts. We did this because our approaches to creating change differ.

Some readers will resonate more with Cheryl’s approach which is “All in your own divine time,” while others will resonate with Janelle’s approach which is “Let’s get it done.” We like to call it, “positive psychology meets spirituality”.

Throughout the book, we share our personal journeys and offer quotes, thought-provoking ideas, simple exercises, and little bite-size pieces of wisdom that invite you to stop, reflect, and discover what comes up for you about your life.

Our commitment is to help readers trust that they will always know is best for them. This means that you don’t have to read the book in the order it’s written.

Feel free to look through the two parts and begin where it feels best for you. Our styles complement one another so we are confident you will gain something from both of us.

You will see that our approaches swirl softly back and forth to guide you in discovering your wholeness and boundlessness.

The authors

Janelle is a counsellor, coach, and CEO of the CGB Centre ( and also considers herself spiritual.

As a mentor and coach, she uses a take action and get ‘er done approach. In counselling, her approach is client-centred, meaning she customizes the sessions for each person.

Janelle uses Solution Focused Therapy, Narrative Therapy, Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT), Acceptance Commitment Therapy (ACT), Mindfulness, and Journaling, and she is Dialectical Behaviour Therapy (DBT) informed.

Janelle will touch upon some of these counselling approaches in this book. Please note, the information and exercises in this book should not replace seeking professional advice when needed. The intention of this book is to create a safe space to examine thoughts and behaviours—the ones that have led you to where you are today. She also uses the framework for reconciling loss which she developed for her book, Life Losses: Healing for a Broken Heart. There is no cookie-cutter approach to the way Janelle counsels. For some clients, it’s a bit of this and a bit of that. For others, it may be just one approach. Whatever she uses, it’s based on what will be most meaningful and helpful to the person sitting across from her.

Cheryl’s journey as a physiotherapist (now retired) transitioned through energetic Specialized Kinesiology. She now enjoys working as a mentor in the Spiritual/ Consciousness world.

As CEO of Own Your Sparkle (, Cheryl’s approach is foundational to what she has learned as the centre of her universe. That is, we all have everything we need inside to discover and transform our lives. Cheryl calls it coming home to our inner divinity and conscious awareness, our truth and living it in our own unique way.

Her work with clients includes taking the physical body and emotional mind out of defence with Neural Organization Techniques, Your Superpowers, and How to Discover Your Soul’s Magic.

In writing this book, she allows herself full expression and encourages readers to feel and discern what resonates with them.

She inspires clients to create a loving and honest relationship with their infinite intelligence, allowing them to co-create a life of joy and calm with ease. Her teachings will help readers feel their light, shine it, and gift it to the world.

praise for the book

“I am someone who truly believes that chocolate can make any day better, so I was skeptical that as the book title suggests there was anything “beyond chocolate”. Admittedly, I was wrong. As a brain injury survivor, I have both avoided problems and attacked problems relying on gut instinct to guide my choices.

Beyond Chocolate has allowed me to reflect on the life choices I have made without always second guessing the path I chose. I learned that changing the way I think, trusting myself and acknowledging my own self worth has given me the peace of mind I never dreamed I could have. Chocolate makes any day better and this book will help make your day even sweeter.”
