My short review [rating=3]
I found the book easy to read – almost like reading 52 blog posts from an inspiring and personal blog. The simplicity of the author’s message is what touched me. Simple and doable ways to start looking at life in a new way.
Thanks for the book, Hay House and NetGalley.
On another note, have you signed up for the September Blogging Challenge yet? Would love to have you join in.
As part of my August celebration, I’m reviving #AnythingGoesOnSunday – an invitation for you to add yours link for your Sunday posts to the linky below. No theme, no prompt – anything goes! However, I’d appreciate if you left a comment and visited at least two of the blogs linked before yours!
This sounds like a perfect book for where I am right now! Simplifying our lives, eating healthy, ensuring we live a regret-free life, cutting out excess that is meaningless, etc. I am going to go buy this book!!
Your life sounds a lot like mine, Nan, except we live in small apartment in India! 🙂
I went on Amazon to look at the author’s work and I am struck by the 5 regrets of the dying that she wrote about in another book. They are five regrets I would not have guessed. I know someone who had three friends (and a co-worker) lose their fathers in the past week, and I have a good friend who has advanced cancer. It seems, wherever I go, I am running into the messages of painful regret, as I help to take care of my elderly mother in law. Today, especially, was so frustrating! Perhaps I’d better start paying attention to what the universe is trying to tell me. I know I’ve said that before. I will try again.
