Happy Holidays friends! I hope you are enjoying the holiday season. If you are in Central PA, I hope you’re finding joy and whimsy in the snow we got last week! It’s been melting quickly but it’s still a winter wonderland.
With the new year fast approaching, I am looking for books to read that will help personally and professionally in 2021 and thought you might be too. I also have a goal to read 30 books in 2021, not quite the 52 I wanted to read in 2019, but realistic since I have a tendency to pick dense and heavy (literally and figuratively) books.
Burnout: The Secret to Unlocking the Stress Cycle by Emily and Amelia Nagoski. This is an amazing book that everyone can benefit from reading. It speaks specifically to women to give language to what we feel and experience but can’t always put into words and will help everyone be more present and aware of the cultural air we breathe but don’t acknowledge.
Becoming Ovary Jones by Melanie Holscher. I mentioned this book a couple weeks ago in a post. This book is great for those supporting people through cancer and those who have it. It is also helpful for people who are stuck in a mindset and need their walls to be shaken or rearranged.
The Artist’s Way by Julia Cameron. I have worked through this book twice (It’s a book that’s like a workbook) and found value and transformation each time. This book is not just for artists or people who consider themselves to be creative. It’s for anyone who wants to make an impact in the world and identify their crap and choose to throw it out (also literally and figuratively).
What are some of your favorite books that have given words to your experiences or feelings? We’d love to hear from you and add to our library of transformative books!
Stay curious friends!
