The Measure of My Powers by Jackie Kai Ellis
Rate this book
Clear rating
This book was delicious. And I say that because Jackie has a way of describing every scene with words that make you feel like you are experiencing it with all of your senses - but mostly taste. I love that she's local-to-me, and I also love that she ...more

Chapter One by Daniel Flynn

Clear rating
I didn't actually read every word of this book. After about 4-5 chapters, I mostly skimmed it and then really dove into the summaries/questions at the end of each chapter. Some of those were gold. Overall, the book helped me reframe some of the "fail ...more

Meet Cute by Jennifer L. Armentrout

Some were really entertaining! Some dragged. It took me a long time to finish this book because of the ones that dragged - so I eventually skipped them, and just enjoyed the good ones. :)

Being Boss by Emily   Thompson

I've been listening to the Being Boss podcast since it first launched in 2015. Listening to Emily + Kathleen share their experiences and talk about "doing the work" is one of the reasons I felt extra motivated to build up my client list and eventuall ...more

The Zimzum of Love by Rob Bell

This is the third time I've read this book. Honestly, the principles don't just apply to people who are married (as I'm not) - this is stuff you can think about in all of your intimate relationships (people you are close with). I like to pick it up f ...more

Slow by Brooke McAlary

Clear rating
COMES OUT JULY 10TH! When so much of the messaging out there tells us to speed up, Brooke shows us how and why we might want to slow down. There is no one right way to do it, but it does start with noticing. Noticing what weighs you down and letting ...more

Destination by Brooke McAlary

I've read this before and I'll read it again. It's filled with great tips on how to slow down. But my favourite part is the morning + evening rhythm exercises. These are the exercises I will do again and again, as life changes, my location changes an ...more

Your Story Is Your Power by Elle Luna
Rate this book
Clear rating
I didn't realize how intense this book was going to be - and that's not a bad thing! It just wasn't what I expected. Definitely don't open it thinking it will be like Elle's first book. This goes so much deeper, and to get the full benefits from it, ...more

OFF. Your Digital Detox for a Better Life by Tanya Goodin
Rate this book
Clear rating
Read it with my morning coffee. It's more like an extra long blog post than a book. And I'm not saying that as a bad thing! There were some good tips in it. But it felt like a blog post filled with lists, and didn't go deep into any topic. Inspired m ...more

The Cost of Living by Deborah Levy

What can I say. This book was a gift, so I didn't know what to expect... but it was exactly that: a gift. Thought-provoking and beautifully-written essays. I can't really tell you what my takeaway from the book is, but I did highlight multiple quotes ...more

“More was never the answer. The answer, it turned out, was always less.”
Cait Flanders, The Year of Less: How I Stopped Shopping, Gave Away My Belongings, and Discovered Life Is Worth More Than Anything You Can Buy in a Store

“I didn’t know how many habits I had that centered on drinking take-out coffee until I wasn’t allowed to buy it. Each time I craved it, I had to stand in the moment, pay attention to what had triggered the craving, and change my reaction.”
Cait Flanders, The Year of Less: How I Stopped Shopping, Gave Away My Belongings, and Discovered Life Is Worth More Than Anything You Can Buy in a Store

“I had kept the rum for the very same reason I had kept every dress, book, DVD, and cord: “just in case” I needed it. Just in case I had a bad week at work. Just in case I had my heart broken again. Just in case I needed to let loose and have a fun night. Just in case I wanted to forget. Just in case I decided this sober living thing wasn’t really for me.”
