Self-Development is all about taking the time to work on the pieces of you that you need. It is not a one and done process. There is no easy fix to challenges. Yes, you can get a breakthrough and move ahead. Yes, you can get great Ahha’s. however, it’s in the day to day process of creating your life with your soul as the navigator and to do this you must be in a state of discovery and development. And, reading and writing is an excellent way to do that.
While the next 10 days are filled with holiday celebrations, many people find the time to sit and relax with a good book. Here are a few of my favorites this year. They ran the gambit from Self-Esteem to abundance to get away with a good novel. And, then of course, my most favorite of all is my journal.
Embrace your Magnificence by Fabienne Fredrickson allows you to look at yourself through a new lens and see how worthy you are of receiving anything you possibly can conceive. In the Divine Law of Compensation, Marianne Williamson unveils the secrets to the spiritual laws that help you overcome financial stress and bring about the power that abundance can play in your life. Jodi Piccoult is one of my favorite fiction authors. Her books are empowering, endearing and often leave me to rediscovering my own power to be my true self. And, then of course, probably my favorite is my own personal journal. It gives rise to the underlying belief systems that I never knew I held, my capable and ever-powerful spirit and allows me to see myself as spirit does.
This week, will you be reading? I’m hopeful that Ms. Piccoult’s new book will find it’s way into Santa’s sleigh so I can unwind with it and I’ll be spending time with my own journal reviewing the year and seeing all the successes of the year before I invite 201 in.
What will you be doing this week to support YOU? Reading to unwind? Looking toward some self-development? Reviewing your 2013 successes? Don’t underestimate that you DID indeed have MANY!
Is there a book that you are excited to nestle all snug in your bed with this holiday season?
Whatever you choose, I wish you much relaxation, joy and abundance this week, as we turn the calendar to 2014 and always.
