Here we are into November, and it’s time to focus on gratitude. I love to read. I’m always in the middle of several books at a time and crave my time (almost) every day when I get to sink into a chair, grab a cup of tea and dive into a great book.
While I love a good novel (I’m currently JUST getting to Gone Girl..I know I’m so behind!), the last few years I’ve immersed myself into self-improvement, health, spirituality and mind/body books. And since we’re all about showing up into the world as the most free and joyful version of ourselves here at Kelly Maher Coaching, I thought I’d share with you the five books that have made a huge impact on me and really shifted my perception.
The 5 Books I’m Grateful For:
When I say this book changed my life…THIS BOOK changed my life. It was the first time I read something that actually made me look inside myself for the answers, instead of out there. The first time I started to understand I was in control of my life and things didn’t “happen to me.”
Gabrielle effortlessly explains spirituality and makes it so easy to understand and relate to. She provides examples from her own life as well as guided meditations to actually take action on what she is explaining.
This book will quite quickly change your perception of the universe and how it’s laws actually work. Mike has a way of explaining potentially complicated concepts very easily all while making it fun and entertaining. I sunk deep into this book and didn’t want to put it down!
This was the first time I ever actually got into my body about money. I really felt grounded after reading this book, not wanting to shut down and ignore my finances. I’d read a bunch of books on manifestation and Law of Attraction but Kate actually gets into reality about money and teaches us how to step into freedom with money. Kate is funny and warm and actually makes getting out of debt and the vulnerability of money fun!
4. Daring Greatly by Brene Brown
As I started my journey of looking inward this book blew my mind and my heart wide open. Brene is a researcher who encourages people to embrace vulnerability and imperfection. As these are the things that actually connect us as humans. She argues that vulnerability isn’t a weakness but rather our path to courage and connection.
5. The Desire Map by Danielle LaPorte
First of all Danielle LaPorte is a cool and funky chick. She has a beautiful way of writing. She’s all about focusing on how you desire to feel and doing things that make you feel that way. She puts a totally new and refreshing spin on goal setting. It’s simple, yet so mind-opening when you actually start to think this way!
