I can truly say the one thing that has changed my life over the last year and a half is that I have actually read books!
I think there is an invisible line when it comes to reading, you either love it, or you hate it! I was on the hate side, for pretty much my whole life. Even as a child, I could only read books if there was a horse involved. I know it may sound silly to some, but I just did not enjoy reading.
When I began my business as a Beachbody coach, they talk a lot about personal development (a phrase I was not familiar with), so I thought I would give it a shot. And let me tell you I am hooked!
I still cannot sit for hours and finish a book, but I found that listening to them on my 2 hour round trip to work suited me just fine. I have since decided to try a little harder at reading the actual books so I can highlight, scribble and come back to parts that I love.
Which ever way you decide to receive these words, I have compiled a FANTASTIC list of books, most of which were written by fellow moms just like you and I.
I hope you enjoy this list and leave a comment below with what you are reading, or if one of these books helped you in some way.
Happy reading my friends.
