I am reading this hilarious, laugh out loud funny and super inspiring book; you are a badass. It is a self help book… yes, really. But no, I am not some kind of sad loser, but sometimes you just need a reminder of what a badass you are and how you can get the most out of yourself. Because after all, I want nothing more than to live an awesome life!
What do I desire?
The super-duper most important step is to realize what it is you desire. Well, I desire freedom. Freedom to do what I love best, and that is to travel, kiteboard and explore. Besides that I love to write and produce meaningful content as a writer and blogger. According to Jen, the writer of the book, you HAVE to feel it. Think about that freedom and feel in your body where it has the strongest effect. When I think about what I desire I feel it in my chest, making me a bigger and stronger person, literally.
Letting go of my bullshit
The hard part is letting go of, how Jen calls it, your own bullshit. Why would you not have the life you desire? I can doubt myself because I feel like I don’t have the money, I can’t leave my boyfriend behind all the time and I feel like if I don’t get a normal job my education is a waste. But what will I lose if I just chase my dreams and desires? Not a lot right? I love to get inspired by other people, who just stopped giving a damn about what other people might think and say, who let go of there own fear and who are living a life that I would love to have for myself.
It’s all out there
The believe you can get what you want as long as you want what it is you want is based on a deeper spiritual belief. High frequency, meditation and a true believe in what is possible will help you connect with the universe and the universe will give back. I’m always sceptical about these things, but I’ll try to keep an open mind. I have bought myself a meditation cushion already, but I haven’t used it yet! I am just going to give it a go and who knows, something great could happen!
The most important lesson I derived from the book is that you have to love yourself and listen to your intuition. If I make a decision I know what to do, I just don’t always want to do it. As for loving yourself, that sounds more straightforward than it is. Yes, I find myself a pretty funny, cool to hang out with and friendly person. But I have my insecurities, and sometimes you just don’t love yourself that much. I find it harder to forgive my own imperfections than someone else’s.
This book has made me aware of myself and has made me look at myself in a way I have never done before. I really feel like I’ve gotten to know myself better, what makes me tick and what makes me me. I would totally recommend this book to anyone, it could help you gain confidence and look at yourself from another point of view. Just give it a try and get it here!
