*READ KINDLE ☔ Stretching Lessons: The Daring that Starts from Within ↲ Ebook or Kindle ePUB free

An interesting journey for one woman trying to learn new lessons from her world about who she is, and why she is here Worth a read for sure, despite the unusual style, but certainly not the best recommendation in this category. I ve loved Bender s other books, Plain and Simple and Everyday Sacred This one just seemed a littleout there The essentials werevague and the message didn t ring as clear to me as in her other books. Full of great truths and moments where I stopped and felt a tear on my cheek But the writing ishaphazard than previous books and made me stop to figure out who or where or what she was referencing It feltscattered and less cohesive I will put this book in my drawer filled with other books that have timeless truths in them It is perfect for a good daily monthly mantra thought or for reminding one s self about propose, grace, love and renewal. Quick and breezy personal anecdotes wrapped up with the author s personal lessons about learning to do less, and a superficial dollop of pop psychology Redeeming qualities are that it is easy to read and it has a very positive message.

This is the third book I ve read by Sue Bender author of Plain and Simple and Everyday Sacred Bender is an artist who is continually looking for ways to struggle less and enjoy life , findbalance, etc The book is made up of short sections, a few pages each, with quotes and anecdotes She focuses on stretching oneself in the book She is a searcher, and the book is full of thoughtful insights. *READ KINDLE ☔ Stretching Lessons: The Daring that Starts from Within ⇯ Written with all the clarity, honesty, and insight that made Plain and Simple a phenomenal New York Times bestseller, this final volume of the Plain and Simple trilogy is about taking risks to grow spiritually and how to stretch to grow beyond our self imposed limitationsWith her graceful storytelling and charming illustrations, Sue Bender looks inward to discover the spirit within each of us that whispers to be heard If ever someone had the exact same mind set, or rather mind obstacles, it was this author As she talks about keeping herself so involved with so many outside obligations, developed as a young child as a defense mechanism to handle an unhealthy relationship, I recognized many of my own defenses I thought this was merely a power of positive thinking book, when in fact, I found it personally enriching and thought provoking. Not in my preferred style of reading about lessons , but since I picked up this book, I m open to suggestions or messages in any form My favorite quote of hers is I know rest is good for me But if anyone tries to be helpful and suggests that I take time out to rest, the assignment only becomes onething on my should do list
