I was initially attracted to this book when scrolling through Instagram and seeing a story of a book club starting up in my local area and this was the book that was chosen to kickstart this. I googled the book, as anyone would (well at least this is my perception of what everyone might do to see what it is about and if it is something that aligns with me) and the book certainly spoke volumes. The first line of the blurb reads "Are you hard on yourself and feel like something is holding you back?" Yes, and yes. This book spoke to me within the first line, and if that happens, I always know it is a sign I am meant to read it! Alison writes in a way that is accessible to any reader and it isn't just a book to read, it can be part of a daily/weekly/monthly routine with the practices and activities that Alison asks the reader to do. (This was the first book where I actually wrote in it! Who needs a pristine book when you can write in it and put pen to paper, expressing and working on yourself! It feels so liberating!) In the future, I would love this to be available on Audible so I can revisit and listen to the book because I believe there is even more to learn from a second read/listen! Thank you to Alison for writing this. I am now currently reading her second book and listening to her Radio show on Wirral Wave Radio. Set your fortnightly alarms and tune in Mon 7pm-8pm, Thurs 1pm-2pm, Fri 7pm-8pm and Sun 8am-9am because it is a show not to be missed!
