It’s been way too long since I shared some book recommendations on my site, especially when you consider how much I love to read and recommend books to people.
This is Part 3 of my ‘Books that have changed my life series’ (you can read the first edition here and the second edition here). In this series I share with you books that I have read that I truly think are life-changing and highly recommend.
This edition may be my favourite one yet and contains 5 really amazing, life-changing reads for you.
Have you ever looked at someone else’s life and thought, “I wish I had it all together like they do?” And then proceeded to feel bad about your own life because you feel like a complete disaster
most of the time sometimes?
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.
During July this year I committed to sharing behind-the-scenes insights into my gratitude practice every day for 28 days on Instagram Stories.
It’s been awhile, but it’s time for another Link Fest where I round up my favourite things I’ve read on the Internet recently.
This edition includes articles on how small changes can make a difference, using Instagram to practice gratitude, some very relatable confessions from a life coach, what success really means, being unavailable and saying no, how to belong to others as well as ourselves and lots more.
Fourteen months ago I decided that it was time to overcome one of my biggest fears and learn how to drive.
This is something I had been putting off seven years, ever since I got my learners permit when I was sixteen years old.
I kept telling myself that I would make it happen “some day” — but that day had not come. I kept avoiding it, putting it off and convincing myself I didn’t really need a drivers licence.
You’ve heard of the life-changing benefits of practicing gratitude, so you’ve decided you’re going to make gratitude a regular practice in your life.
You go and get yourself the cutest Kikki.k gratitude journal you can find and a new pen to go with it (of course!) so you’re set up and ready to commit to practicing gratitude.
It all happened because of a Neuroscience report.
A report that I knew about for months, but here I am sitting on the couch drowning in stress and overwhelm – and regretting getting myself into this position.
I booked my first driving lesson and made a decision to commit to learning to drive — for however long it was going to take.
A few months later (and several driving lessons down) a friend asked me how I was going with a couple of the goals I had at the time, one of them being learning how to drive and I responded, “It’s going okay. I’m trying really hard.”
My boyfriend loves Marvel movies, so last month we went to see Spider-Man: Homecoming together.
(Random side note: The first movie I saw at the cinemas with my boyfriend, before he was actually my boyfriend was Iron Man 2 — and ever since then I’ve seen every Marvel movie that’s come out with him.)
What I loved most about the movie was that it reminded me of something really important. But first, if you haven’t seen the movie yet and you want to, I recommend tucking this email away and then coming back to it after you’ve seen it (because: spoilers!).
