I thought I'd share with you a book that I really enjoyed reading and find myself recommending to other people all the time. It's called The War of Art by Steven Pressfield. It's all about overcoming resistance in your life. While the examples are geared toward writing and other creative pursuits, the thing that I really love about the book is that it applies to everyone. Everyone has dreams and goals. And it is within your power to pursue them.
I first heard about this book on Oprah's Super Soul Sunday (a fantastic show, by the way). I found the interview fascinating, so I bought the book, and I'm so glad I did. I read it at a time when I was not feeling particularly confident about my writing, and there were plenty of life challenges popping up. The easiest thing in the world would have been for me to set the writing aside. But reading this book kept me going, and it's one I find myself thinking back to often.
All that to say is that it's a great, quick read with things you probably know deep, deep down, but it's written in a way that sticks with you.
If you have any books along these lines that you'd recommend me checking out, drop me a message here. I'd love to hear from you!
Spread joy today!
