This review is from: Lighten Up: Love What You Have, Have What You Need, Be Happier with Less (Hardcover)
Peter hits the nails in my head and tells it as is. It's like the light has finally turned on for me as I've been sitting in the dark for a long, long time. I really like the questions and exercises that come with each chapter. They got me thinking and revisiting my habits and my thought patterns. I must admit that the questions Peter has for the readers are hard to answer. OK, speaking for myself. Really, if you are like me got hit by this recession, what Peter talks about in this book will touch you in every aspect of your life, just as mine has been touched by his wisdom. Ever since my husband was laid off by his job almost 2 years ago, we've been forced to live with only one income. But it's hard to change the way you've been living for the past 10 years to suddenly realize that you do not have that much spare money to spurge whenever and whatever you feel like. Honestly, it took me about more than a year to finally change my spending habits. I didn't love what I have and I constantly thought I need more and more would bring me happiness. After reading this book, I understand the simple and happy way of living is to live simply. Appreciate life and look at life differently. Stuff will not make me happy. Stuff does not define who I am. I have been cleaning out all of my clutters mentally and physically one day at a time and it is so liberating. I highly recommend this book to anyone that is going through financial hardships currently.
