Sofia Wellman - If The Shoe Fits Go Barefoot - Cover

Lucid, perceptive exploration of what it means to be human and to transcend life’s most staggering challenges offers hope and peace to readers

While all human beings struggle with aspects of their lives at some point or another, some human beings achieve a level of understanding of who they are and of existence itself that allows them to surmount the burdens of their struggles and the concepts that have imprisoned them.

Such is the case for author Sofia A. Wellman, whose profound struggles and purposeful journey to make sense of her life have resulted in an understanding that has genuinely transformed her existence and enabled her to function in peace in a world replete with hardships and distractions.

In her new book If the Shoe Fits, Go Barefoot, Sofia chronicles her journey to reach this serene place of thoughtful awareness. She notes that once we understand who we are, life has meaning and our struggles make sense. They have a purpose, and they add to life’s meaning. Life itself, she notes, becomes more harmonious, our relationships become more fulfilling, and we experience more peace of mind and better health.

Sofia reveals many insights in If the Shoe Fits, Go Barefoot, including the observation that any time we feel fear, doubt, or insecurity, we are at risk of acting from a pattern reaction. She celebrates individuality and offers this profound comment: “If we all try to be the same piece, the whole no longer reflects oneness, but one.”

She comments, “This book was born out of my personal struggles as I grappled with life. Unlike most self-help books, which lead to more doubt because they are incomplete, If the Shoe Fits, Go Barefoot is all-encompassing and integrated; it ties everything together and helps readers understand existence and themselves.”

“After I read If the Shoe Fits, Go Barefoot, I couldn’t stop thinking about it. Many of its messages hit home, and once I applied the principles, the book changed my life. A rocky relationship turned into a pleasant one. Major decisions became easier. This book goes much deeper than the typical self-help book, and I’d read most of them.”
— Bobbie Christmas, book doctor, and owner of Zebra Communications

Author: From a very young age, Sofia A. Wellman was compelled to understand the deeper meaning of all things. Although her curious nature and determination were useful in building a successful business, her real journey to delve into the meaning of life was prompted by catastrophic life experiences. Her ability to carve her own path in life has enabled her to transform painful experiences into a new beginning.

Sofia currently resides in Atlanta.
