“The more that you read, the more things you will know. The more that you learn, the more places you’ll go.” ~Dr. Seuss
It’s been a while since I’ve been here to tell you about some of the great books I’ve been reading! There are tons of good books out there these days, focused on a number of different topics, but here are some of my favorites lately.
- Untamed by Glennon Doyle: This book touches on so many things that I believe will resonate with many women. She touches on the idea that many women feel “tamed” or “caged” in their lives for a number of reasons. Glennon Doyle is very vulnerable and honest about what this looked like in her life and how she identified this so she could change it. I found this book to be very enlightening and inspiring and think it is overall a great read for anyone!
- Dare to Lead: Brave Work. Tough Conversations. Whole Hearts. by Brene Brown: I am a big fan of Brene Brown and her writing and this book did not disappoint. This book focuses on using her research in regards to leadership, which was very interesting to read her work in this different light. It does not matter what kind of leadership role you have, either as the CEO of a company or as a leader in your own life, this book just makes sense and gives a new perspective on how to lead others. As always with Brene Brown’s books, I was challenged to think a lot about myself and how I already apply or could apply her work to my life.
- When Less Becomes More: Making Space for Slow, Simple and Good by Emily Ley: I have enjoyed following Emily Ley on social media as she talks about everyday stressors and challenges people face, but she does so in a very relatable manner that just makes you want to get your life together! In her book When Less Becomes More, Emily Ley touches on the things in our lives that are likely overwhelming all of us, but that we don’t recognize or are too afraid to acknowledge. This book is a very easy read and breaks down the areas of our life that we might be able to simplify and pare down so that less can become more in our lives.
