Thresholds

I had the opportunity to review Thresholds by Sherre Hirsch.  It is a book on how to thrive through life’s transitions to live fearlessly and regret-free.

I found this book to be very uplifting. She really gives you some real life ways to apply the methods. They are nothing too crazy or out there, just methods you forgot about it. I liked that she said there is “no magic pill” for happiness. Some people believe if they’re not always in a great mood, they should go see a doctor and get medicated. Turning to prayer and your inner peace is much better for the body.  I found the book to be a fast read and very enjoyable. Living with no regrets isn’t easy, but much more manageable through the ways of this book.

Living with Intent, by Mallika Chopra

IMG_6358A goal of mine each day is to read something positive, uplifting, and motivational.  I try to avoid reading or watching the news since it’s usually packed with negative stories, cop hating trash, and overall nothing positive.  I’m always looking for new books to read and had the pleasure of reading, “Living with Intent,” by Mallika Chopra.

The book is centered upon Mallika’s search to find more happiness and purpose in her life.  It not only covers her successes, but she also shares her failures.  This is something I really liked.  I love to hear how people can rise above their failures and come out ahead.  She has divided the book into 6 steps of her journey to achieve intent: Incubate, Notice, Trust, Express, Nurture, and Take Action.

Each chapter entails Mallika’s journey, who has inspired her, her ups, and downs, etc.  My favorite part of the book is the end of each chapter.  She wraps up each one with a Reflection and Practice.  She tells you what she was trying to get across and how to carry it out in your own life.  Mallika talks a lot about meditation and how it has changed her life.  Someday I would like to include it in my own life.  It is very hard for me to shut off my brain and just think about nothing, so I think it would really be beneficial for me.  Overall, a really great read and easy to relate to.
