I've always heard of books by this author, so I decided to listen to this one on audiobook. It's not that it was bad, it's just that it didn't really feel applicable to my life at this time! I'm not like the author...I don't feel that constant rush and push and need to prove things. I did enjoy the book overall, and I liked it more near the end, but it just wasn't for me.

(I also felt like she didn't really give much concrete advise for how to change. She talks about saying "no" to certain things and slowing down, and she talks a lot about how she felt and about how her life had this big change, but there aren't any real steps to take to do that.)

I am looking forward to reading some of her other books though!
