Some of the things that were said were inspirational and true. However I read this book far too late in life. The thoughts that Vanzant expressed that I loved were thoughts I already knew or believed because of my own life experiences. However where I am now in my life, a wonderful place, and this book isn't right for me. It's meant for those, specifically women, who are lost or feel insufficient. It is after all a self-help book.

You don't have to be religious to enjoy this book. It's a daily pick-me-up.

I liked this little book with its one page essays, meditations and prayers. I usually just read a few pages at a time. So many things to reflect on. The author takes us on a journey through valleys, those low points where we are challenged to grow and become stronger.

One idea that I am going to try to implement in a smaller, less ambitious way was spiritual discipleship. The author suggested putting 12 principles into a bag, pulling one out and working on that for 90 days. I may try 30 days as

It's a reference book by the way, with "feelings & attitude" refernces in the top corner of each page to find your insight like finding a definitions in a dictionary.
What did I learn from this book?
The straight dope - I have to be real with myself at least! Things are rarely as bad as they seem.

It took me a while to read this book as I did a lot of double takes. Today I see me in a different way. I have learnt how to open and love me. I wish I read this sooner.....

Read this years ago and it changed my perspective on life, I just wasn't ready to practice what I learned. Years later I now know how much it really taught me.
I am having a hard time getting excited about reading this each day. I don't find it very loving in nature, but more as if I am being told harshly.
