Last month I attended Cassie Mendoza-Jones’ book tour and workshop for her new book: It’s All Good. It was an amazing evening and I left the workshop feeling really content and like I had a clean state.
In the days following the workshop I read Cassie’s new book, which is about trusting and surrendering to the bigger plan, being okay with uncertainty and about moving forward from failures and disappointments with trust and being better off for it.
This is one of my favourite books I’ve read this year and I feel like I read it exactly when I needed to. I loved that the book included personal stories from Cassie’s life, beautiful affirmations and meditations, energetic tools (Cassie is a kinesiologist), lots of practical tips and questions/activities to explore and put into action (which I highly recommend actually doing).
I got so much out of this book and I know it’s going to be one I return to again (and again) and one that I recommend to my clients as well.
In this post I’m sharing 4 of my biggest takeaways from It’s All Good (from both the book and workshop), plus there’s also an opportunity for you to win a signed copy of the book if you’d like to 🙂
1. To be okay with where you are right now…
Wherever that may be!
A little backstory: The workshop was the first night I had been out since I had my wisdom teeth surgery a few weeks prior and I knew that I was there for a reason. I recovered really well from my surgery — however — I was finding it challenging getting back into “real” life while still recovering and having limited energy.
The workshop helped me to truly accept where I am right now, to let go of where I think I “should” be and let myself be where I was.
I think it’s really powerful to find a way to be okay with where you are now, while you still work towards more or what you want — and this was such a big reminder for me.
2. Failures can lead to newfound clarity, progress and growth.
One of my biggest takeaways from It’s All Good is the reminder that failure can actually lead to good things like clarity, progress and growth. As Cassie says, “Your failure is not the end of your world.”
This book reminded me that it could even be the beginning of something amazing. I was also reminded that one day I may be able to look back and be grateful for my past “failures” or disappointments, which is a really nice feeling.
3. Trust that you will get where you want to go.
One of the biggest feeling I had after finishing It’s All Good was a deep trust that everything was going to be okay, that everything would work out and that I would get to where I want to go in time.
It reminded me to really trust, take empowered action and surrender to the outcome. And to know that it was all going to work out.
As Cassie says, “Trust you’ll get there, or somewhere better, all in good time.”
4. Be open to receiving what you want — or something better.
I loved in It’s All Good how Cassie kept mentioning throughout the book to be open to receiving what you want with a caveat of “or something better.”
Because sometimes I think we get really caught up on how we think things should look, but I love the approach of being clear and open to what you want — while also being open to something even better!
