There’s this one thing you might not know about me. I devour a lot of books! Like A LOT, a lot! I remember very well how back in kindergarten, my bestie and I would obsess over books while other kids were playing with play-doh. It’s the one thing my inner overachiever was determined to learn asap before she went to school. Now, I don’t really have a genre I’m drawn to regarding books. I usually read or listen to a few books on different topics. Personal Growth and Self Development are one of them. Here are a few of my favorites that helped me grow & glow from within.
The Untethered Soul By Michael A. Singer
JOURNEY BEYOND YOURSELF
For the soul to become untethered, you must become the observer of your thoughts rather than believing that they shape you. YOU are not your mind.
This book offers insights on balance and control of your emotions. According to Singer, the best way to free yourself from your monkey mind is to step back and view it objectively. I highly recommend this book if you’re on a self-development journey.
Ishmael by By Daniel Quinn
AN ADVENTURE OF TE MIND AND SPIRIT
At first, the storyline shows traces of a novel, releasing refreshing ideas on the human race and our environment. Then, Ishmael discusses the creation of our modern civilization and the strain we put on our future to reach human goals.
Main conclusion: Man sees himself as ruler, deteriorating the Earth. Pretty raw and incredibly close to my heart.
Untamed by Glennon Doyle
STOP PLEASING, START LIVING
Glennon Doyle is a spicy little character who knows how to bring her entire self to the table. A fierce female Powerhouse, if you may.
It’s like chatting with your gal pal about her life-changing moments. One time she slaps you in the face with the cold and bloody truth. The other time she wraps her arms around you and gently whispers, ‘Babe, I’m proud of you. You got this. We can do hard things!’
The Four Agreements by Don Miguel Ruiz
A PRACTICAL GUIDE TO PERSONAL FREEDOM
We are born into a society that plants ideas, concepts, and theories in our heads. Not only do we believe them, but we add thousands of unspoken restrictions to the equation, solely based on a perception of others.
The four agreements portrayed in this book help you break all those false premises that might have locked your personal freedom behind bars.
