The only wonderful part about spending sixteen straight hours in the car, getting both to and from a spring break vacation destination, BESIDES the opportunity to really catch up with my husband and children, is the time it affords me to read. An indulgence which does not happen in my everyday life.
I haven't read anything fictional since The Shack, I prefer autobiographies, self-help, Christian inspiration and tales of near death experiences (yah, I know, call me weird, I can take it). If I have made it to the last page of a book, I have learned something inspiring or something I believe will help me to become a better version of myself...because if I am not engaged, I never make it to the end of the book.
You Are A Badass was the first of three selections for our endless journey between Dallas, TX and Sedona, AZ. Two words...great choice. If you happen to be looking for a book which will [in the most hysterical, cynical, sarcastic way] move you off the fence about anything you desire to do in life (start a business, quit your sucky job, find your soul mate, stop wasting you life away...) THIS is the book for you.
Jen Sincero wasn't someone I had heard of before my latest trip to our local Barnes & Noble, but reading her work is like sitting in the backyard drinking wine with a long lost, brutally honest friend. The kind who won't bullshit you about where your life can be headed if you decide to have balls enough to get your ducks in a row. Check out her website, www.jensincero.com
Decide is the operative word. It's a well-known fact life won't change for the better without a decision on your part to make it happen. You can spend years complaining about your job, where you live, the crappy car you drive, how you don't have any friends, and/or never finding the "right" partner, and things aren't going to change unless you move from lip service to action steps.
Contemplation is the talk, decision is the walk.
Lots of people contemplate every day, few will make a decision and move on. The precipitating factor is being sick and tired enough of the current situation to do things you wouldn't normally do in order to create change.
The old, "get out of your comfort zone."
Stop talk'n shit and start DOING shit.
If you feel like it might just be YOUR turn, hi-tail it over to B&N or, if you are too lazy to do that, hop online and make this your next purchase.
Remember, you are just ONE DECISION away from being a BADASS!
