Beautiful book, powerful hope
Reviewed in the United States on March 7, 2017
As some of my life choices and experiences make me more qualified to recommend a decent bailbondsman than to dispense advice on parenting/spirituality/how to live one's life, I'm prone to shy away from being really open about books that really have impacted my heart. THAT BEING SAID.....I've been curling up with this gem and have read it twice already and you need a copy. Or five. Rachel wooed me with "Hands Free Mama" but this one is my new love. Who couldn't use some reminders that it's probably going to be ok and that we are not the grand total of all of our failures? So me? I'm going to Only Love Today. And probably tomorrow too.
Some of my favorite parts from this beautiful book:
"If I were to delete my most regretful experiences, I wouldn't be here, on this particular page, in the story of my life.....If I deleted all the poor choices, the pitfalls, and the wrong turns of my life, my story would not be what it is today; I would not be who I am. But here's the best part: despite the marred pages of my past, today is a blank page lined with yesterday's wisdoms and braveries that came from falling down and getting back up. My story is not pretty; it's flawed, but it's real, and it's still going."
"Hope renews. Self-compassion heals. Forgiveness frees. Today is a blank page. I will hold on to the hope that with each page, my story only gets better."
In this book, you'll find the beautiful self-compassion and hope that our world could certainly use more of today.
