really liked it
Recommended for: anyone who lives outsides the mold

This is an inspiring, easy read! With less than 50 pages (and about half of those with photos) I actually read it all the way through the night I picked it up from the library!

On the back cover there is quote from the author: "What is really hard, and really amazing, is giving up on being perfect and beginning the work of becoming yourself."

At this time of my life, this work is on my proverbial radar. Becoming yourself is like breathing, we all do it — every day — without thinking. However, once we decide to surrender ourselves to our Purpose and focus on that, there is the transforming power of intention.

'For I know the plans that I have for you,' declares the LORD, 'plans for welfare and not for calamity to give you a future and a hope. ~Jeremiah 29:11
