Simply put- these books changed my outlook on life, my brain and my perception of absolutely everything.
I’ll keep this short and sweet.
- The Desire Map- Danielle LaPorte
This book feels like a gift for my soul each time I open it. With words that I believe can ring true to any soul searcher, LaPorte invites you on a journey of creating a life you desire based on how you want to FEEl vs. what you want to DO/Accomplish.
“I ONLY WANT TO HIT MY TARGETS IF THE AIMING AND THE HITTING BOTH FEEL GOOD.”
- Take Me With You- Andrea Gibson
This book holds your hand during the worst of days. Filled with Gibson’s best, most raw and hopeful poems, it is sure to welcome you in for a warm embrace whenever you need it. Though many readers criticized Gibson for the “messy” format and grammatical incorrectness, I believe the heart and soul of these poems make up for it all 10 fold. Bonus #1: Small enough to take everywhere. Bonus #2. Cute illustrations!
- UNFU*K YOURSELF: GET OUT OF YOUR HEAD AND INTO YOUR LIFE- Gary John Bishop This book gives it to you straight- no bullshit/no dancing around the truth/ no sugar coating. Though Bishops “tough love” approach may not be for everyone, it was insightful and reaffirmed what I already believed- If you want it bad enough, you’ll go for it. If you don’t go for it, you don’t want it badly enough. A read that encouraged me to get out of the ruts and limitations that I set for myself.
