Shaunaly ~  (A Book Away From An Episode Of Hoarders)
I've had this book for many years now and when I am nearing the end of teaching my yoga classes, I share the daily passages with my students (who for the majority have always been women). It's a wonderful little book and one that all us busy females can certainly relate to.

An on-going read. Speaks to me, reminds me to slow down and reminds me I can (should) make other choices.

This is a good little book to have beside the bed or a favorite chair. It is organized into brief one-page meditations, one per each day of the year and each introduced by a pertinent quotation from women of different ages, cultures, perspectives. There is wisdom, thoughtfulness built into your daily routine if you take the few minutes to pick this book up, read and reflect - a practice I am resolving today to resume. It has been some years since I bought this book at a Quaker conference and for...more

It's not helping!! I meditate on the daily readings whilst rushing from one task to another. I somehow get the impression that this is not how it's meant to work. Maybe they will filter in slowly, or maybe I'll learn to be a sloth in October. I'm just one of those people whose lives have to be filled wi a thousand outstanding tasks just to get my arse out of a sling long enough to do one! Have an indolent centre. It's just having a hard time getting out!!! Will use the book as it's meant to be u...more

While I will not have actually finished this book until the end of the year, I love it. Each day is a small passage about being a woman who fights the instinct that we have learned or the beliefs that we are holding about being more... doing more... achieving more... to prove our worth. The ultimate message is that we are perfect, just as we are and that we harm ourselves and others by believing otherwise. There is great truth in these small passages.

this is a great book on daily thoughts for women. It doesn't matter how rushed you are, you can pick up this book and find the thought for the day. The advice is gentle and sometimes funny. It is also encouraging and reassuring.

I love to pick it up and spend a few moments reflecting on the thoughts and on me. A great pick-me-up book that helps the reader take a little time out from a very busy day!

This was a gift, from a very special friend, to help me deal with alot of daily struggles. There are some very good quotes & I love the way the index is set up! Great little book to have, I have 3 daughters, so I'm passing this on! :))

This book was recommended to me by someone who knows I am always doing WAY to much. It is a great one a day, stop and pause to reflect on what is truely important in your very busy life.
Lora
This is an ongoing read to remind me how to handle stress in my everyday life. It always me to step back and refuel, and ultimately cherish myself the way we are all meant to.
Meija
Excellent for every women, men too! Small doses of truth to help clear your head, and set you back on the path... Brilliant.
Bessa Wahba
This was a gift from an old friend. It not only has sentimental value but has also inspired me to Bette myself.
Jacki
Fabulous book. Like melting into a puddle of yourself. A new way of looking at things, and an old way at the same time.
Kelly
Reading the daily meditations puts my life and my behaviors into a deeper perspectives. I become more aware of Life.
Toni
This is an "ok" mediatation book. I prefer my other two selections better, but it's a nice change from time to time.
Scout
