Book Review: #iamdone by Amber McLean

The mystique of success for women

Have you ever wondered about why you don’t feel like you are on top of the world, when you are on top of the world? This book answers that key question and more. As a woman in transition myself, in that in between becoming stage from active midwife to mentor of women about to give birth, this book packed the spiritual punch I needed to finally realize that I am AWAKE, and there is no going back to how life use to be. First of all, I had heard of this book from a friend, but then it was hard to find in the search engine because I forgot to put in the hashtag. I found it, got it and started reading. Suddenly, I felt as though Amber was sending me a cryptic message. I kept seeing her quote someone called “ambodhi”, who is that? It felt esoteric, so I decided to Google it….I suggest you do the same. But to keep the intrigue at its highest, first get this book, read it before you Google, then wait for it…..you will never be the same again!

Book Review: The Hustle-Free Business by Amy Birks

book hustle free biz

I can sure use a Ninja to grow my business!

Amy Birks got me in the intro with “Your kids are growing up, making those microscopic changes moment by moment that you just can’t get back.” I so agree, we are all caught up in life, that before you know, it will pass us by in an instant if we are not careful. John Lennon said, “Life is what happens to you while you’re busy making other plans.” Her RESULTS Rituals are easy to follow! Look out 2017, the year of 1 = New Beginnings, I am going to implement this plan! Her breakdown about the two types of resistance to growing your business completely resonated with me. I love how she hit the mark by addressing how it’s not just about following someone else’s formula to success, but it’s about the secret formula that is hidden within each individual for their own way of obtaining success and enjoying life at the same time. Genius.

Book Review: Widowed by Joann Filomena

book widowed

A beautiful gift for those left behind

Having lost my mom in 2014 and supporting her in the last 4 years of her life after she was widowed, I really wish I had this as a reference to help support her. Thank you so much for the courage it took to write this book. This book is important to read, not only for widows but for all of us who are of the age when we are seeing our friends and family pass away. Two of my dear friends from college have both recently passed away; this book is a wonderful gift for them!

Parenting: What Do We Do Now!?

Parenting

Parenting:

“OMG! They are letting us take the baby home. He’s really going to live with us!” Those were my thoughts when I brought my first baby home! And I was a pediatric nurse back then; you would think the best trained person to be allowed to take a baby home! It was scary.

  • Will I be a good parent?
  • Will I drive safely home?
  • Will I be able to breastfeed? Is the baby really getting enough milk?
  • Yikes my body morphed again!
  • Maybe things didn’t go as planned and you are both left with feelings of frustration, sadness, inadequacy or even feel traumatized.
  • What about sex!

How to be successful in Marriage or Long-term Relationships

A long term relationship as in marriage is very hard. I’ve been married for over 30 years and together for over 33 years. My overall thoughts about long term relationships are it takes the following ingredients to make it work out:

  • Commitment
  • Forgiveness
  • Love….unconditional
  • Communication skills…impeccable
  • Honesty….raw
  • Knowing when not to say anything
  • Meditation
  • Believe you were brought together for a greater purpose
  • Freedom……allow all expressions
  • All emotion is good….but do no harm
  • Mutual Respect….try…”no harm, no foul”
  • Partnership
  • Listening skills
  • Sex, sex and more sex….not necessarily with just your body….your mind has to be involved
  • Allow….all expressions of thought, ideas, philosophy
  • Don’t assume ownership
  • Keep your mind open
  • A quest for self improvement…..Always do inner work on yourself first
  • Let go of blame
  • Nothing is as it seems…..we live in our own illusion
  • “Check yourself before you wreck yourself”
  • See though the obvious….the reality is not necessarily what you see in front of you
  • Frustrations usually go deeper than the present event
  • Listen to the humor…..it’s usually the truth
  • Watch each other’s back without being judgmental
  • Compromise….two (or more) people with individual agenda’s need to meet in the middle
  • Make a decision…is it worth fighting for? (there’s no wrong answer here) Proceed from there.

Strangeness and Charm in Relationships

Enjoy “Strangeness and Charm” by Florence & the Machine

To me the song speaks about the energy that holds us together. We can’t see it but it’s what attracts us and binds us. It’s filled with a lot of scientific imagery.  Strange and charm are types of quarks, as well as down and up. Strange and charm quarks can only be created in high energy collisions. Her song is all about the chemistry of intense love and how just a touch sets off the chemical reaction. What a great feeling!
