Hey, everyone! I know it’s been a while. These last couple of weeks haven’t been very exciting; and if anybody knows me, being bored is not something I handle very well. A lot of things have been changing, both in my work life and in my personal life, good nor bad. Things that I can’t typically control. And again, if you know me, you’d also know that I’m a bit of a control freak.😅
When things start to feel out of my control, or when life decides to stand still – AKA the boredom – I start to feel a little trapped. When this happens, my motivation and my excitement starts to plummet. Basically, we have those moments in life where things tend to slow down and you’re forced to wait patiently for things to start back up again. For me, this particular moment is absolute torrtcher. It even becomes overwhelming sometimes.
So when this happens, I whip out a book written by Jen Sincero – You Are A Badass.
This book was a birthday gift from my best friend, Sydney. And honestly, it’s probably one of the greatest gifts I’ve ever received. I’ve never been the type of person who reads books one right after the other, and really, the books I would typically read would be those from Nicolas Sparks – who doesn’t appreciate a good love story, right?💕
Jen Sincero, however, has completely changed the game for me. The purpose of her book is to help her readers to “understand why they are who they are, how to love what you can’t change, how to change what you don’t love, and how to use The Force to kick some serious ass.” Her constant cursing and sarcastic humor is something I found totally appealing to me. It gives me the feeling that I’m not being lectured by a teacher who wants to change my thinking and mindset, but more of a friend sharing her personal stories and experiences, which allows you to interpret them for yourself to work for yourself.
As I said before, control is my mantra. Before reading this book, I was always struggling with myself. I always felt that no matter what I was doing with my life, there was meant to be something more. Sincero has personally helped me face this feeling, and after facing and realizing this, has helped me understand how I can change it myself.
I’m not going to explain what she means when she uses the term The Force; there are many different interpretations for this saying, so you have to experience and understand this for yourself.
This book is to show you that whatever it is you want in life, no matter how big or how small, you are capable of achieving it. And truth be told, this sounds cheesy to someone who hasn’t cracked open this book yet. It’s totally crazy! But after experiencing this book, the amount of control I’ve gained and the ability to manipulate the universe in my favor, is even crazier.
If you feel that you’ve reached a dead end in your life, or if you feel that life just isn’t what you wanted it to be, or even if you feel like you need a major change in your life but don’t know where to start, my advice to you is to read this book.
Check it out for yourself and find your inner badass 📖
