With summer, comes adventure which is exactly why we chose to read Adventures For Your Soul by Shannon Kaiser. We had our Creative Director, Amy, take this book out for a spin and here are her thoughts!
What’s the premise of the book?
Each chapter talks about different things that hinder you from living your happiest life and becoming your most loved sense of self. The book gives you activities you can do to keep you from being held back, essentially providing you a roadmap to transformation.
Who can benefit from reading the book?
The book can be for everyone! More specifically, anyone feeling a little stuck or has goals they want to achieve, but don’t have the confidence to do so.
What are some of the most important lessons you’ve learned?
Free Your Feelings
One of the most important things I took away from the book is about dealing with your feelings. There is a difference between feelings vs. emotions and it comes down to being able to determine things from your head and your heart.
The book talked about the Abraham Hicks meta physical teaching which is basically an emotional guidance scale. It can teach you how to go from feeling bad to feeling better about any situation by having you really dig deep to figure out what you feel, why you feel it, and how to get through it.
One of the most common habits of people (myself included) is overthinking and being hard on yourself. A quote that I really liked that related to this topic was this:
If you treated your friends the way you treat yourself, you wouldn’t have any friends. So, why would you treat yourself that way?
Just Do You
We are in a world where everything is broadcasted. Almost everything we see on social media is a carefully constructed version of reality. While I do love social media (it’s helped my side business!), it’s also important to take a step back and realize the people you idolize aren’t necessarily posting their low moments. Don’t beat yourself up because you’re not where this person is right now. They have hiccups too! They went through things to get to where they are now and it should motivate you and not discourage you.
Something To Think About:
What we believe in the inside is manifested on the outside. Pay attention to your thoughts and how they affect your reality.
