I am anxious what is your style ?.
Need I say more.
This book took my single and healing game to a whole other level. For one, I am not crazy for wanting and needing a relationship and Love. It’s part of my biological make and that doesn’t make me clingy and needy.
Reading this book made me feel sane like someone finally told me it was okay the way I felt.

“DEPENDENCY IS NOT A BAD WORD”
I honestly don’t have a review of big recommendations for this book, besides I loved it and it made me laugh. For one she uses the word “pussy”. I think I loved this book because it was written by an older woman.
There were tons of tales and stories she told that was jaw-dropping and very very interesting concerning the sex and pussy department.
Reading this book single made me realize that I didn’t know much about my body and the connection I should have with it as a woman.
I’ll buy the book just for the cover. Can you imagine someone seeing this book on your coffee table …lol priceless !!!!
This book is great for 18 +
I am just as shocked as you are that this book made it onto this list. I read it with an open mind. Halfway through I wanted to be done with it, however, I needed to know what all the hype around this book was.
Then I was like yeah, yeah, yeah I get the point.
But then something happen inside me…maybe I light bulb moment and I finally got it.
I often come back to this book in my head when I am thinking about things in my life that I regret. I even wrote a blog post about one of my biggest regret in life concerning my son Zack
Here’s the thing, we can sit there wishing we did things so differently, thought we were supposed to live there instead of here, get married to so and so, work for x company and our list goes on.
But what if the things we regret actually turned out to be much worst than our present-day ?.
what will be our state of mind today if we knew the things we regret turned out to be nothing we wanted?.
will we just live more today ?.
I couldn’t get on board with not regretting anything in life and I know this is a big teaching in the spirituality and mental health community. However, in my life I thought over the years I had about 5 maybe major regrets, as life went on and even after reading this novel. I know I will always live with one reget in this lifetime and it will never change.
This book is great for Ages 16 +
This book is a long read and I do not recommend reading this is on sitting, or even 5. I highly recommend spacing this book out. For me, it was a book I needed to digest bit by bit.
Think of it as fairy tales for grown women, with some psych, soul and spirituality.
This book is great for Ages 16 +
I think the title speaks for itself.
Here is my take EVERY WOMEN SHOULD READ THIS BOOK. I don’t care if you are coupled up or single.
This book gave me the boost that I needed, this encouraged me to find “me”, before I ever find a “we” again.
WHY IS THIS BOOK ALSO FOR WOMEN IN RELATIONSHIPS:
It’s showing you that you are a whole person by yourself even if you are in a relationship. You have to be good with yourself. Find yourself, start making space for yourself and carve out time for things that you like.
This book hit me more on the spiritual side of things and helped me get more clarity on the things I really value in a relationship and not to put my values on the last of anyone’s list.
This book is great for Ages 18 +
When I started to read UNTAMED by Glennon Doyle I had a highlighter in my hand, after a few pages into this book I realized I was going to highlight the entire book and that would have looked bad on my part. The book stays by my nightstand and randomly opens it to get the message I need for the week.
I am so glad Glennon’s words came into my life. She writes as if she’s speaking directing at me like she just said what was hiding in my head.
I love Untamed, never regretted the purchase. I loved every page, loved the writing style and it encouraged me to just be me.
I went out and bought her book LOVE WARRIOR and loved it just as much.
Glennon has a way to get her heart across on paper. She truly is a gem.
The Journey from Abandonment to Healing: Revised and Updated: Surviving Through and Recovering from the Five Stages That Accompany the Loss of Love
My healing journey has brought about some very unpleasant break-ups and hasn’t been a smooth road.
I never understood why I was attracting that same person into my life, why I always felt left behind and this feeling of always feeling incomplete no matter how many affirmations I did.
With my last break-up, I had a few tools I learned along the way, but this book has helped me the most along with some others like Attached and Hold me Tight.
I always think about my son when I read.
I think about him and I being miles apart and how it could affect him later in his life and how I can be a better mother miles away.
This book is also preparing me to share useful tips with my son later down the road.
I will always speak highly about The Journey from Abandonment to Healing: Revised and Updated: Surviving Through and Recovering from the Five Stages That Accompany the Loss of Love because it made me feel normal for what I was going through in my break-up.
My emotions, my body and my mind were all reacting and I had no clue what was going on.
The exercises in the book have helped me out in other areas of my life and I always keep in my mind to be kind and gentle with myself.
LET’s TALK ABOUT MONEY BABY !!!!
I wish what I knew about money I knew in my early 20’s. I wish my whole life to be different especially the money part.
Here’s the thing, no school is ever going to teach you about money and if you are like me I was never taught anything about money by my parents and my father is a businessman.
With my 40’s approaching the thought of retiring early seems like a dream I’ll never have, but I refuse to let that be the case.
I think about when I get older and nursing homes cost, not to mention I still have goals that I would like to provide for my one and only child.
Being a single woman is hard enough, being a broke single woman is a f*cking shit show.
So no matter what your age is you need to learn about money.
Here is the great thing about money, it’s never too late to welcome money into your life.
Change your mindset about it, Learn how to pay fewer taxes, Learn how to save and invest.
Then take your knowledge about wealth/money and pass it down to the next generation in your family.
Come on ladies, we can do this!
We can be RICH and SPIRITUAL
