Hello, everyone! I am back with another update on what I’ve been reading lately.
If you’ve missed my prior book updates, check out previous posts :).
With that said, here’s what I’ve been reading in February:
Author: Glennon Doyle
Ok, so, to be completely honest, what caught my eye about this book in the first place was seeing it all over social media towards the end of last year and the beginning of this year.
I then started seeing powerful quotes and excerpts from the book that motivated me to check it out. For example:
“This life is mine alone. So I have stopped asking people for directions to places they’ve never been.”
“The only thing that was ever wrong with me was my belief that there was something wrong with me.”
“When a woman finally learns that pleasing the world is impossible, she becomes free to learn how to please herself.”
“Every time you’re given a choice between disappointing someone else and disappointing yourself, your duty is to disappoint that someone else. Your job, throughout your entire life, is to disappoint as many people as it takes to avoid disappointing yourself.”
Ok, so here’s my honest feedback about the book: I wasn’t a big fan of some anecdotes and life stories. However, I am a huge fan of empowering messages, and this book had a lot of that!
Through stories and examples, Glennon talks about living an unapologetic life.
As long as we’re not causing intentional harm to others, we should all be doing what makes us feel alive. We have a duty to live our life to the fullest, and we all must liberate ourselves from the fears of disappointing others in the process.
We should make a conscious effort to eliminate feelings of hesitation and fear from our lives. It is easier said than done but something to work towards!
Glennon speaks from experience and has a very empowering story. She left a life many would have considered “picture perfect” to start all over again.
Great book overall. If you’ve checked it out or plan to, let me know!
And that’s all for now!

MabelI had shared i was diagnosed with leukemia and was just reading your quotes from latest book. It just hit me hard bc long story short I thought some people cared more about me than they do. And funny thing is it’s kind of freeing too. Waiting for just an im sorry you’re sick text. Wow that took all of 5 seconds to type! I know your group isn’t just about money. It’s about supporting women. But money gives us options to control my life…and the thing about realizing there’s nothing wrong with me…other than thinking there’s something wrong with me.Anyways I’m done waiting for folks I’m apparently not that special to…and focusing on the VIPs around me.Just wanted to thank you for the positive vibesTheresa
Hi, Theresa! I love your messages and the fact you are so open and honest with our community. I want to thank you for sharing your message and what you are currently going through. I know you are being confronted with a tough challenge. Ironically, it is during our hardest times that we know who really cares. I am so grateful to know that you are receiving all of the positive vibes from my posts and my content. That means so much to me. And you are correct – my group and my community go beyond just “money.” Money is simply a means to an end. I am so appreciative that you see that. Thank you for leaving a message of love here. I pray that God heals you and that you grow healthier each day. Stay positive. You are loved and the world needs you HERE! Sending hugs to you.
