I bought this book after I coordinated a mini-convention, discovered my mother has cancer, my older cat had breast cancer surgery, and I was attending a class on how to deal with my husband's diabetes. With the holidays coming up, my stress levels were raising more than my cholesterol. Something had to give.
Every night this little gem of a book tells me that it's okay to let go, which was the same advice my best friend gave me the night I purchased it. I am not Wonder Woman, so why am I trying? Why do I feel the need to fix everyone and everything in my life except myself? This book will helps me uncover the behaviors affecting my life and then helps me change them.
You need this book. I'm buying three more copies for other women who need them.
It's a pity because the book deserves a better presentation. It makes you think about the far-reaching effects of perfectionism, workaholism, and "busy-ness" on your emotional, physical, mental and spiritual health. Not every day is a perfect meditation, but every couple of days the alignment of the meditation with the events in your life creates a moment where the lightbulb goes on and you're jolted with the truth of who you are. With that revelation comes the possibility of change: a different decision; maybe a better decision.
I'd love a high-quality version with a daily marker ribbon sewn into the spine. It's a good book and deserves better from its publisher.
If you feel harried and rushed, are in a long supermarket line, or stuck on traffic, this is the perfect book to open up and get you to feed your mind with wisdom to bring you more inner peace. A wonderful book, and I think it is great for men too.

Daily meditation books are common-place now, but at the time, this was an absolutely fresh and visionary book for me. It spoke to my life so effectively that I would carry it with me in my shoulder bag, the way some people carry aspirin or anxiety pills. I would read it on the subway, and sometimes at stop lights when driving. Often it would only take a page to shift my perspective, but if I was especially stressed, I would read several pages. Anne's words would quickly remind me that I needed to take it easy. My breath would deepen. I'd start to feel my heart soften and regain perspective.
What a tremendous contribution to the inner lives of women this little source of wisdom has been! If you're running around crazy, overworked and over-committed, do yourself, and those who love you, a favor, and order this book. And if you know of a woman who is living in the danger zone of anxiety, pick up a copy for her.
In 2010 through Facebook I reconnected with a friend from 1986 to whom I'd give a copy, and she told me she'd read it cover to cover when she got it, and would come back to it every few years and find it just as valuable.
This is truly a gift that keeps on giving; a guide to living a happier and more balanced life.

Should have been titled, "Meditations for Women Who Want to Be Feminists." Mind you, I'm a feminist, so I can support that agenda, but the title is a bit misleading. Read morePublished 4 months ago by Bigmommabird
