A video of me guiding you through the shadow work (the harder parts/ confronting your fear) of the chapter, in a technique called Emotional Freedom Technique or Tapping.


An MP3 file of me reading the current chapter out loud for you to listen to while you workout, drive, or lie in bed.


Every chapter will have multiple downloadable/printable worksheet that will assist you in processing the strategies discussed in the chapter. These will include journaling prompts and additional shadow work.


A list of activities and examples of ways you can begin to implement the topic that will include ways that are both accessible to people of all mental and physical abilities. There will also be external resources provided for further education.


Replays of group coaching calls and slideshow presentations. These were continuing educational videos for each chapter. A bonus perspective for each theme.

This is not just about "fluffy" joy. This is deep shit.

We go through deep rooted fears and are building a sturdy foundation of self-love to stand on, instead of throwing a random lesson here or there at a belief that is deeply digested and immersed in our bodies and minds.

To truly rewire our brains, we need to be in total alignment, and THAT'S what Merriment Making teaches.

We are talking about:

  • Being scared of being happy
  • Fear, trauma, pain, and addiction
  • Feeling burnt out, unmotivated, and procrastinating
  • Feeling passionless and purposeless
  • Blocks of not being able to play or be creative
  • Hoarding reasons to celebrate
  • Feeling hopelessly pessimistic
  • Being ungrounded and unable to feel mindful and focused
  • Fear that being happy makes us selfish and stupid

"I adored how Mary spends this book cheering you on, while also giving advice about self love that is practical, heartfelt, and very helpful all at once. I appreciated that I was encouraged to not just read what she was saying, but take it a step further and write my own experiences about it/responses to it. I even used a colorful pen to match the very colorful layout."

- Colleen about "This Is About You", my first book

"An excellent self-help book. I'm sure I'll be revisiting this one multiple times. It's packed with uplifting "homework", actionable lists, and lots of color. Reading this book feels like having a conversation with a friend who knows what you're going through and just wants the best for you."

- Sarah about "This Is About You",
my first book


No Abstract Fluff Without Action

Not only is this book a fully immersive experience with more than 12 chapters on unique topics under the larger concept of Merriment, videos, and worksheets, but I'm also approaching this book with a unique set of life experiences.

I personally dislike personal development books and products that inspire the hell out of you in a very abstract way, then you get to the end of the chapter and there's nothing tangible for you to do or take away. Like, yes, okay, that felt good, but what do I do now? That's why I'm READING THIS!

So I promise you, that while I will share personal things from my life, they will be purposeful, and every single chapter will always have actionable items for you to take with you. Things you can do that day, things you can do over and over again, things you can do over time.

I also am approaching this as someone who has had over six mental illnesses for over twenty years, is fat, and recently has experienced physical disability in a way I never had before with a fractured bone and two torn ligaments in my leg. That means that the activities will be extremely sensitive to all types of abilities, bodies, and sensitivities. I know that what works for one person might not work for another. You are always free to try whatever you want, keep what feels good, and toss what doesn't!

For more background: I have personal experience with C-PTSD, Autism, Bipolar, OCD, Tourette's Syndrome, Panic Disorder, Trichotillomania, Anorexia, Self-Harm, Suicide, Drug Addiction, Sexual Abuse/Assault.
I am also a part of the LGBTQIAP+ community, have experience with Polyamory, Non-Monogamy, and Kink.

I am currently in therapy myself, take medications, enrolled in multiple educational programs to constantly be learning, have previously published a book, graduated with a BA in Psychology, worked at a Psychiatric Rehabilitation Center for 5 years, own my own business, and am currently a Life Coach.

Who Am I?

Hi!, I'm Uncustomary. I started my business, Uncustomary in 2013 to share my journey with self-love, body image, and personal development. It has grown immensely to be able to help people all over the world in so many ways, for which I am incredibly grateful for!

I wrote my first book This Is About You: Amazing, Weird Beautiful You in 2016. It has 5 Stars on Amazon. I am so honored to be able to bring you this new up-leveled book on a topic I am incredibly passionate about.
