From Food Stamps to First Class: Start Living Your Dream Life Now


Shilamida believes our lives can be anything we want them to be, regardless of the unique challenges we face. In her second book, From Food Stamps to First Class, she guides women on an empowering journey of emotional, physical and spiritual healing. Each chapter dives into a life lesson that uses genuine examples from Shilamida’s own life, illuminating those lessons and offering easy-to-implement techniques readers can use to achieve their own success. From losing her father at a young age, becoming a single mother before she was 30 and living on government assistance, to emerging as a top acupuncturist, losing 100 pounds and manifesting the love of her life, Shilamida highlights the lessons she adopted to create her dream life (so readers can find their own). She has also included affirmations at the end of each chapter to help the reader take inspired action to live their best life. This book offers a no-nonsense, straightforward and engaging road map to unconditional self love and encouragement for radical change.

This is a must-have for EVERYONE! This is such a beautiful book, I am not sure where to begin? I think the most profound realization is my ability to break down walls that I didn’t know were in my power to break. I am more relaxed, more social, and more productive! Practicing gratitude has been a mind-blowing adventure, and I am going to continue to read and re-read this book every 31 days, as the more ingrained it becomes, the more abundance and manifestation will occur. Strangely enough, I am noticing more and more opportunities and messages being sent to me that I never imagined. My life purpose is constantly shifting and evolving now that I am open to receiving these messages! You can tell that this book is written with intention and love for her readers. Thank you for taking the time to share your secrets of abundance and creating your best life with us!

I love this book because it is not just one read and put down. As you read it, you change. Your perspective shifts and you see life in a new way. I wholeheartedly believe gratitude is a foundation of a healthy life. This book can help you start a gratitude habit or expand a practice you already have in place so that you continue to thrive spiritually in a material world. 31 Days of Gratitude is great for you and it is a meaningful birthday or graduation gift.
