I hope you all are well :)
I apologize for the distance but I promise you my time away hasn't been in vain as I've spent it planning, drafting, reading, and executing. For those of you who have kept in touch with our Emailed Updates, Facebook, and Instagram you have either glimpsed or personally witnessed the work that I have been putting in.
Before I dive into updates regarding Lady Bookworm I want to talk to you about a book that I read coming into the new year. This book is called The Four Agreements by Don Miguel Ruiz.
This book has truly opened my eyes to something very important, accountability. Often times we forget that the path in which we take and the results that we reap in life are due to the decisions we make. We have control over our lives. In this book, Don Miguel Ruiz guides us through why making these four very important agreements with ourselves will reap much more positive outcomes.
The Four Agreements that are broken up into chapters are the following:
- Be Impeccable With Your Word
- Don't Take Anything Personally
- Don't Make Assumptions
- Always Do Your Best
Don Miguel Ruiz starts by thoroughly explaining The Toltec way of life. "Toltec knowledge arises from the same essential unity of truth as all the sacred esoteric traditions found around the world." The book reminds us that everything in existence is a manifestation of God and that we are all made of pure love and light. He takes us through the journey of human domestication and how that has truly affected the way that we think and act. The Four Agreements allow us to return to our true selves and in turn allow us to be much happier. Now, I am sure it is easy to understand why making these four agreements withy yourself is necessary however doing this is easier said than done. This is where the understanding of domestication comes into play.
I won't go much further into the book because I have given away a lot of information already and if you haven't read it yet, I would love for you to snag this book and get to it. Client the image above and it'll take straight to amazon.com so that you can purchase :)
If you've read this book already, I would love to know your thoughts in the comments and/or how it has shaped your life for the better.
