The Book "Loving Someone Who Is Dying" Launches

 New Book “Loving Someone Who Is Dying: Choose Your Attitude, Create Your Life!” Launches

 Memoir offers Positive Insight for Caregivers and Those Grieving in Challenging Times


Seattle, WA ― Life is a collection of choices and Nicholas Strand, founder of Choose Your Attitude™, has learned the power of choices firsthand. Today, Strand announced the release of his book “Loving Someone Who Is Dying: Choose Your Attitude, Create Your Life!” a moving and empowering memoir inspired by his late wife, Brianna Oas Strand.


When Strand married the love of his life, he didn’t expect her to gift him with a legacy to fulfill. Brianna passed away in 2017 after battling cystic fibrosis. Even in the direst of circumstances, her positive outlook inspired Strand to see the gift of choice we are given daily. It was her motto — Choose Your Attitude, Create Your Life — that became Stand’s message.


Loving Someone Who Is Dying: Choose Your Attitude, Create Your Life!” is a source of inspiration and comfort for anyone facing life challenges, seeking a deeper faith in the face of difficulties, caring for a loved one battling chronic and life-threatening illness, and looking for a reason to choose happiness over helplessness.


“We all face struggles, but the key to overcoming them is using the pain as a form of strength and encouragement,” said Strand. “I want to use that little spark of hope I have to inspire others to choose their attitude, move forward, and live fully. It’s not always fair what can happen to us, but that’s life — how we choose to react is the only control we have.”


Brianna’s story, told through the eyes of her husband, is one of inspiration, hope, heartbreak and reality. Strand’s new book invites readers into the tragically short, but incredibly inspiring life of a woman who battled chronic illness yet relentlessly pursued living life to its fullest. Each page gives readers a lesson on grace and acceptance from a woman who saw life as an opportunity even in the face of a terminal medical diagnosis.
