The book was inspired by some of the most difficult times Sanford encountered while in Europe, where she learned the importance of loving herself and her life.
Since the book was written during a difficult period of her life, Sanford says it is easy to relate to any transition in one's life.
"It was written during the most difficult time of my life, instead of the easiest time of my life," said Sanford. "So it's really a book on how to make transitions, how to love where you are and how to maximize your moments."
"How to Love Your Life" is on shelves in stores now.
