The collection of diverse essays in this Community Book Project, INDEPENDENCE, includes a wide variety of perspectives. The one word – independence – is approached with personal stories and knowledge reflecting the expanse of human experience. We read about those milestones of independence and about taking three steps forward, two steps back. The challenges some overcame and those experienced in the process of becoming independent are offered. The psychology of independence is described. And yes, there are lighter moments as well. Readers can find inspiration, greater understanding and food for thought and journaling in abundance as they read INDEPENDENCE.
On this 4th of July week we - in the United States - celebrate our independence from English rule. My own entry in this Community Book Project selection celebrates how a fire walk helped me take control of my own life after a divorce. Other authors describe different ways to view independence, and tell stories of overcoming different challenges. Every 200 word story here has value and will enlarge your capacity to understand what Independence means.
Bought earlier and have plowed through the book ... and it's so thought provoking in many ways to see through many eyes ... and then there are many that just simply make you smile ... can't hardly wait to do a leisurely full 're-read over morning coffee and with all the short stories you can read at any pace ...ENJOY
The overriding benefit of the books by this author group is the variety of perspectives given on a particular topic. In this case, I found many aspects of independence that I'd overlooked when considering the concept. I learned viewpoints that I will take into various career and interpersonal relationships.
This e-book is written by several people (over 100) and the ideas expressed in it are as individual as the authors who wrote them. The book is made up of several short pieces, each with a quote and an idea about Independence. With the 4th of July happening soon, it's the perfect time for this book to be launched. It's a great inspirational book to enjoy with your morning coffee, or a good summer read at the beach. Enjoy!
This is a wonderful book of inspiration, courage, and independence. My contribution titled I am is a story of hope, courage and strength. I hope you find this book or even a single essay to be an inspiration . Enjoy freedom, as we celebrate our Independence Day.
The variety of stories with the theme of independence sparked my memories, not only recent ones but way back, like fifty- years-ago memories. Many experiences the authors wrote about were relatable and the ones that weren't, I found surprising, fascinating, and heart-felt. Each story is short, 200 words, which makes the book perfect to read before going to sleep at night, for quick inspiration.
