It's Fall Y'all
... and it's that time of the year where new beginnings happen and old things drop away, like the falling leaves you see outside. It's hard to let go sometimes. It's hard to let go of the things we knew and are comfortable with, even when they no longer serve us.
We may need some guidance and some direction to get to that place, where it's ok to let go of what we knew and try a "new coat" on. See if we like the way it feels. See if we like the way it looks on us. Some of my favorite books below are to help with that. The letting go and trying new things kind of books.
Be Love Now, by ram dass.
There was this book in the 70's that was huge. It marked the spiritual awakening to the masses in the U.S., called Be Here Now. It was ram dass' first book and it was definitely a little woo-woo. Truth be told, I've only read pieces of it. I kept going to the bookstore to find it and came across this one instead. This is the follow-up, some 30 years later to Be Here Now. Be Love Now is just, straight up, some deep shit. I'm a pretty fast reader, but I find myself constantly re-reading passages and I still don't feel like I'm getting the whole message. But, it will penetrate some deep part of your soul, because IT knows, even if you don't-yet.
It Starts with Me, by Yvette Le Blowitz
You may have seen me talk about this next book on my Instagram account. I met this woman on IG and we totally hit it off. It Starts With Me by Yvette Le Blowitz packs a lot of easily digestible information on how to create new habits to become your happiest, healthiest self. What I love about it is her story that she weaves in throughout the book. She's a fantastic example of living your dream life and when you read about it in her book, you'll instantly be inspired! I don't want to give away too much, but if you ever wanted to visit those crystal blue beaches in Fiji, she actually does it for her job!! Check out her Instagram, it's drool-worthy! Plus, she's one of the kindest people I know.
Expectation Hangover, by Christine Hassler
The last book, Expectation Hangover, really is the my favorite for learning to let go, especially of the past. I met this woman Christine Hassler, this past June and she really knows her stuff. Make a point to read this if you are going thru something that you just can't shake, but know that you need to. I mean, how great is the title?
Let me know how you get on with these books. Did they help you in any way? These are truly ones that hit my heart and made me think in a slightly different way. I love spreading the wealth of knowledge around and am always looking to drink up something new.
Do you have a book you think is perfect for the Fall time? Which books are your favorites?
