The book is filled with positive messages about being the best person you can. Miranda talks a lot about self-esteem, confidence, health, passion, happiness, relationships, gratitude, and a whole lot more. Everybody can benefit from the advices given. This was even a good reminder for me on stuff that I already know.
Contains some pics and a collection of positive affirmations at the end too.
For one thing, Miranda Kerr is not a good writer. It's obvious that she is trying, and that she is having a lot of fun sharing her thoughts in this book that reads more like a teenage girl's diary, but that effort and that enthusiasm unfortunately doesn't make up for what the book lacks. For one thing, if a couple paragraphs in a row begin with the same phrase or clause, you know you have a problem. This is an elementary style issue that any good writer would know to avoid, and any good editor would quickly slash out with red ink and fix. I guess not. The fact that the mistake persisted into the ARC makes the writing feel repetitive and clunky, and makes me think it was lazily edited. If edited at all.
For another, there's some really strange phrasing and absurd imagery sprinkled throughout. I'm unfamiliar with the phrase "talk your legs off" when used to describe someone who is particularly chatty. I've heard "talk your ear off" before, but never heard the legs mentioned in this context. Is that an Australian thing? My apologies to the people of Oz if it is. Another such instance that took me right out of the book and had me asking aloud, "What?!" was when Miranda discussed something about positive thoughts being like a seed you plant in your heart. She asks, "If you planted your heart, would it grow?Read more ›
Its a delightful read, very inspiring and motivating.
Helps to believe in one self and know that you are important- who every you are and where you ever have come from.
You can achieve something good for you.
Never give up. and be kind to yourself. make your dreams come true.
The basic premise and theme of this book seems to be: "YOU decide your future. Your attitude, your outlook on life - is what will return to you in the form of personal life-experiences." And all through the book, interspersed with anecdotes, is a gentle guidance, through self-revelations, anecdotes (funny, mundane or tragic) and Miranda's own observations (as well as Deepak Chopra and others'), on one page, as well as guiding thoughts by Louise Hay (the savior of my psyche and my healing angel many years ago, through her book "You Can Heal Your Life") on the facing page.
The "Getting Personal" questions at the end of each chapter are another way of peeling away the layers of self-doubt and adding "muscle" in the form of self-revelation. There is a good chapter on nutrition, which is another way of empowering yourself-- anorexia doesn't feed the mind or the psyche -- in fact the opposite happens when girls try to starve themselves to look thin.
The ONLY thing that I would like to see changed is the use of lower-case "i" when referring to one's-self, in those affirmations - that is way too humbling. No -- Make it a CAPITAL "I" because everyone needs to "stand tall.Read more ›
