In reviewing Beth's book, who I already feel is my good friend, I find myself unable to do it justice! IT IS THAT GOOD! One thing I hope everyone goes away with here, is that this book is not just for people seeking 'freedom to fly'...it is for ensuring, that all of us happy or searching, become aware of how life can trap us, with or without our permission. I don't want to give away all the wisdom that Beth shares with us...you will love her writing style, it is smart, well written and completely engaging. I love this woman! And make sure you understand she is no sissy! You will love her stories...and everyone of you wise enough to read this gem, will find yourself in there some-where. I don't know how she does it! The book is magical. Scouts Honor!!
1. Beth Kempton is a lyrical writer. She weaves together metaphor and storytelling in a beautiful and compelling way. When she describes her travels, I can imagine that place in my mind.
2. This isn't one of those "Just get off your duff and do it!" books. She makes it clear that action is required while remaining sensitive to the circumstances and emotions her readers may be swimming in.
3. The exercises and journal prompts are insightful and inspiring. Do them!
To be truthful, I wasn't expecting as much depth as I've found. Not because I don't believe in Ms. Kempton's work, but because so much 'self help' seems to repeat the same mantras over and over again. This book is different. I feel lit up when I read it and listen to it in my car. I have the Kindle and Audible versions and will be buying the hard-copy as well so I can mark all over it and dog-ear the pages. This is one of my highlights from the beginning: "The opposite of happy is not always unhappy. It can be a vague greyness that is hard to pin down." I read that and thought to myself, "She gets it."
I also appreciate what Ms. Kempton says about motherhood and freedom. Let's be real having children changes your life and your priorities. She goes on to give an excellent explanation of separating feelings from facts and our context from our feelings about the context and explains how we can shift perceptions and separate the cage from the context. When we separate them, we can clearly identify the cage and take some action to set ourselves free. She then goes on to discuss what she calls the Freedom Keys - a series of practical and metaphorical tools designed to help us slip out of our cages and explore the possibilities of freedom. Freedom Seeker gets two thumbs up from me.
