I love research and learning in all its varied forms. For me, writing is a way to further understand what I’m learning. And as for teaching, it seems to spill out of me. No matter what I learn, I somehow end up teaching or coaching. It’s a part of who I am. For within the writing and coaching, I’m forced to further understand what it is I’m learning to be certain that I truly understand what I’m learning.
Everything around us is constantly changing. It may seem that everything stays the same, but if we pay attention, something is different. You see, the Universe is constantly creating. And I use research to help me shape this creation.
However, it is in the comfort of the familiar that we get stuck, never noticing the evolving and growing happening around us. This stuckness is also known as habit. It’s the mantra that seems to run in the background of our lives keeping us unaware of what can truly be if we only allowed ourselves to be open to something different, something new, something magical.
Thus, this section of the website…book reviews. As I read and research, I feel the desire to share with you the magical words I’m reading. The books vary from business to metaphysics to spirituality to the afterlife to science…in short, whatever draws my attention. (I’ll spare you the reviews of the romance and mystery books I read. Although very often, if I’m searching for an answer, something a fiction author says may be exactly right thing.)
Within each review, I’ll include a Golden Nugget. This is something that I found valuable and useful. And it may be something valuable for you also.
Of course, the books that I review will probably all be positive reviews…some more than others. Why is this? Quite simply, I don’t like to complain, because what you focus on is what you get. And I certainly don’t need more things to complain about.
So, what of the “yucky” books. Simply, if I don’t like a book (for whatever reason), I have a hard time getting through it. And if I don’t read it, I don’t think it will be fair if I review it. I’m not going to waste my time slogging through something only to write a mediocre review. Although, there are times that my interest just doesn’t match up with the current book, and I’d hate to give it a bad review if at another time, it would be the perfect book with the perfect message. So, let’s just assume that the “yucky” books are just not matching up with my search at the moment. After all, it’s only true until it’s not. The “yucky” book could turn out to be a Golden Nugget at a different moment in time.
As always, I’ll be honest and straightforward.
