"Lately, I've been thinking about realities. Like the
reality that you have four pairs of fabulous jeans in the
closet but you can only fit into one. Or the reality that
you deeply love your children, and yet today you want to
physically rip out their vocal cords if they sass you one
more time. This is a complex issue--this living in two
different realities--the one reflects a woman who is the
best in us, and the other a woman who's "working on it."
Every aspect of this quote is so true. I love how she just tells the honest truth and doesnt back down. She writes in a way that makes you feel like you are not alone and that there is truth out there and you have to find yourself in the positive aspects of life.
Another great quote that I found as I was reading this incredibly moving book is this:
"Remember that the most joyful and beautiful
moments often come in the thick of stress. If we will
look for them, we will find them. Which is why living a
more beautiful life on a daily basis is more important
than waiting for that one special moment a year to
WOW. What an amazing statement and so true. Focus on the positive not the negative. There are so many great things that I could say about this book but you truly have to "experience " it for yourself. I promise you will not be disappointed. Connie writes about everything from life experiences, marriage, kids, stress, and anything else you can imagine! It is truly an amazing book!! There is a tour wide giveaway so make sure you enter for a chance at this awesome book!!!
Life is too short and we only get one shot at it, so it's in our best interests to make every day and every moment count. I didn't realize, as I was reading this, that it is actually three books combined into one. I read it all in one sitting, but I would love to go back and read different sections, taking the time to really ponder and savor what is being said. I couldn't help but laugh and I love that Ms. Sokol puts it out there--she's just as human as the rest of us are and isn't afraid to admit that. Wouldn't it be amazing if we were all able to laugh at our stress and shortcomings and move on? This is the perfect read for any woman out there!
*I received a copy in exchange for an honest review*
The first column in the Wife section, "My Degree in Gender Education," had me laughing so hard. She tells what she learned on a frosty morning walking up a tall hill with her dress tucked in the back of her pantyhose. Oh, my, make sure you don't miss that one to find out the rest of the story! Find joy in the differences between men and women, meet each other's needs, encourage each other, forgive, let go of control and so much more!
In the Mother section: Find joy in motherhood, lighten up, be patient with yourself, learn how to handle situations when you've blown it, how to deal with motherhood guilt, stop being a bossy pants (which will allow your children to grow), don't hover over your children, let your children work their problems out, show love to each child in their own love language and strengthen family connections. There are many other topics in this book and they are all wonderful!
This is a book I will treasure and read when I need to feel uplifted. I like that she talks about not being too hard on ourselves while also giving great ideas on ways to improve ourselves and our relationships. There are some suggestions she makes that I would like to implement in my life. This is a great book for all women to read!
I was provided a copy of this book for an honest review. My opinion is 100% my own.
