I like reading. I like the idea of reading. I enjoy my quiet time but getting into a book is really difficult for me no matter how much I want to read. I bought this book titled “Own Your Life” by Sally Clarkson and I have finally decided to start reading it. So here is a little encouragement I have gained from chapter 1.
Clarkson spoke a lot about her experiences in life and how she got to where she was and it was quite promising to see how such a successful woman has had some serious life struggles. Sometimes I feel like I’m the only one who has had this certain struggle so I don’t see any way of coming out of it. I know it seems silly but I’m sure each and every one of you have had that thought.
She referred to life as a puzzle which I loved. Each season of your life is a piece in the puzzle and you can choose to strive for a completed puzzle or live with a broken puzzle. Basically saying that your life is ultimately up to you.
I’ve had a blessed life and sometimes I feel as though it’s not fair that I have been blessed with this amazing supportive family while others are struggling for the support of their loved ones. But since diving into this book I’ve already come to the realization that my experiences in life are no less than anyone else’s. My “puzzle” may be at a different stage than others but it doesn’t mean that I can’t help people. Although my story is different it doesn’t discount the pure intentions of my friendship.
So far I definitely recommend this book and I look forward to sharing each and every chapter with you all. If you bought this book or have read it before I would LOVE to hear your thoughts!
