I am working on picking myself up and putting the pieces back together. It is a process, and ending up being a really long one. I have been really trying to focus on myself and keeping my head up. I still have like 100 pages to finish of Carry On, Warrior: The Power of Embracing Your Messy, Beautiful Life by Glennon Doyla Melton.I have been kind of putting off finishing this because we started it together and it has already made me cry a lot. But it is really good and I am going to complete it within the next week. I am also half way through The Golden Lily by Richelle Mead. I figured it was a good pick to get back into the my old reading groove, by reading a book by an author I really enjoy and a world I have grown to love. I am kind of sad to finish this book because I do not own the next one in the series and I know I will want to continue. I also have borrowed Brave Enough:Getting Over Our Fears, Flaws, and Failures to Live Bold and Free by Nicole Uniceto listen to on my walks. I have been putting off walking everyday because I hate having all that time alone with my thoughts and thought it would be good to have something to help me through. I have been working on a fitness journal and I need to get myself back into workout everyday like I use to before everything happened. I need to stop letting the ex control my life and mood.
Recently I have been going through a lot of things in my personal life. It been kind of hard on me because I thought I was in a good place and was happy. With all of the stuff going on it has been causing me to question everything. The biggest thing being myself and what I want and need from life. I am confused about everything and have decided to go to books to search for answers and to help guide me. A friend suggested that I should pick upCarry On, Warrior: The Power of Embracing Your Messy, Beautiful Life by Glennon Doyla Melton.I am not very far into it yet because I have been trying to take my time with it and really absorb all that it is saying. I have to admit it has already made me cry and I can relate to the author a lot. I think acceptance is important and it is something I am trying really hard to work on. Along with the non-fiction route of self-help I have trying to dig deeper and read more philosophical and meaningful fiction. I feel like there are so many pieces of literature that are referenced and like a staple of the book community that I have not read before. I have always used books to escape life so I’vealways been drawn to lighter fiction and fantasy. But I think if I want to be the princess that doesn’t need someone to save her, I need to keep educating myself and filling myself with knowledge. I decided to start small and picked up Anthem by Ayn Rand. Have you read either of these books? What are your thoughts? I would love more recommendations of what people think I should read or would be good for me!
