Travel as Transformation: Conquer the Limits of Culture to Discover Your Own Identity By Gregory V. Diehl

Travel as Transformation: Conquer the Limits of Culture to Discover Your Own Identity By Gregory V. Diehl

travel

When you travel to a foreign place, do you experience this new life as your old self? Or do you become a new version of you? From living in a van on the streets of San Diego, to growing chocolate with indigenous tribes in Central America, to teaching in the Middle East and volunteering in Africa, bestselling author Gregory V. Diehl has followed a worldly and unconventional path through life.

Leaving his California home as a teenager, he fully immersed himself, living and working, in 45 countries across the globe—all by age 28. In Travel As Transformation, he puts his diverse cultural experiences on display and asks the reader to question how their own identity has been shaped by the lifestyle they live. As you delve into Travel As Transformation, you will learn just how profoundly travel can influence your perception of yourself. Diehl teaches aspiring travelers, vagabonds, and nomads to let go of their internal inhibitions and former sense of self.

To encourage world wanderers to embrace change, he shares his own stirring experiences of transformation across Costa Rica, China, Morocco, Armenia, Iraq, Monaco, Ecuador, and more. By embarking on this nomadic journey alongside him, you will learn to examine all of humanity through unbiased eyes and discover all that lies just beyond your backyard. A new, vast cultural experience awaits. To travel with a truly open mind is to forget who you were when you started.

It is to be constantly born anew, and identify with ways of existence you did not know were possible. Travel As Transformation will give you the wisdom, the inspiration, and the resources to conquer the limitations placed on you by your home culture. It’s time to take advantage of everything the world has to offer and become everything you can be. Find yourself through Travel As Transformation.

My Thoughts:

I found this book quite interesting taking in the experiences of a lifetime travelling across the world, which I have always wanted to do. I feel as though Gregory is very passionate about what he does and wants to show and tell everybody he meets about what he has achieved in life.

Loving Ordinary Life: The Self-Help Book for People Who Are Tired of Self-Help Books By Anastasia Petrenko

Loving Ordinary Life: The Self-Help Book for People Who Are Tired of Self-Help Books By Anastasia Petrenko

self help book

Loving Ordinary Life is written for us: living, emotional people. We all want to live a happy life, but we can easily fall into a state of despondency. We prefer to smile, but more often we frown. We like being inspired, but most likely, we can’t recall the last time when we were. There are many books and courses about self-motivation and inspiration. You might have heard hundreds of platitudes and affirmations.

Each of them sounds valid but their utility is limited when you actually find yourself stuck in a pit of pain and despair. Loving Ordinary Life is meant to make a functional difference. It’s not a treatment for depression. It is about living a life where depression has no place. Loving Ordinary Life is your guide. It is designed so that you can open any page and find the inspiration to act and improve your life when you’re feeling down.

Each chapter in Loving Ordinary Life is a tool for moving from a negative idle state to a positive proactive state. It displays to you the art of being present, free, and genuine every day. If you want to be more fulfilled and enjoy life more, if you’re open to quality changes, Loving Ordinary Life will become your loyal companion. Everything is within your power. You are the master of your life.

How you experience it depends only on you. Take the lead. “Very little is needed to make a happy life; it is all within yourself, in your way of thinking.” Marcus Aurelius

My Thoughts:

I don’t normally read self help books of any kind. This book had a friendly and happy vibe to it. It will help you to live an ordinary life as the title suggests. The tactics and suggestions really do help the reader in their time of need. The book as it has been written well, is easy to use and understand and it is small enough to be able to use anywhere and everywhere. A really helpful book.

Bring your baggage home for the holidays!

It should be the most wonderful time of the year but for the Binghams of Magpie Cottage it’s not so much deck the halls as deck your relative.

Margaret wants to create the perfect family Christmas.

Bernard wants some peace & quiet to enjoy his retirement.

Becca wants her ex-boyfriend to call.

Natalie wants the admiration & respect of her parents & siblings.

Dan wants a drink.

Nick wants to try for a second baby.

Evie doesn’t know what she wants…

Throw in two disagreeable pensioners, an offended vicar, a broken boiler & a stolen turkey for the perfect festive farce…but when tragedy strikes everyone is forced to set aside their hopes & fears and exercise some seasonal goodwill.

My Thoughts:

I love the cover I think it looks stunning and makes me think of drinking hot chocolate when it is freezing weather outside. It was a easy read with lots of characters to meet. I was constantly laughing with this book and it made me think of my family. I look forward to book two.

Jane Once More ( Sequel to Jane of Manchester) By J. G. Dow

Jane Once More ( Sequel to Jane of Manchester) By J. G. Dow

jane

Jane is back and so are her friends and family but time stands still for no-one, as they say, and so has she moved on at all with her life?

Carrying on from the first book, Jane of Manchester, there is plenty of fun left to be had as Jane and her friends continue to have a laugh in the city, but change may be just around the corner…

More giggles, good times and drama from Jane and the crew!

My Thoughts:

This book was just as good as the first one which is called Jane of Manchester. We are back with Jane and we see what she is getting up to since we left her last time. I found it very amusing and warming. I feel as though I really warmed to Jane and her friends. Another great read.

Like Broken China By J. D. Thompson

Like Broken China By J. D. Thompson

This title is not released until 21st November

Is love enough to repair the pieces of a shattered life?

This is the question plaguing Courtney Cook’s mind as she packs her whole existence into a 20ft moving van. When she first encountered Matt in a coffee shop ten years prior, she was immediately transfixed. Dark, adventurous, and wildly untamed, Matt was everything Courtney didn’t know she wanted. One night of uninhibited abandon was all it took for her to be completely enthralled by the boy without limits.

Now saddled with two children, a sky-high mortgage, and a marriage crippled by addiction, Courtney finds herself desperately trying to hold on to the life she knew. But as she struggles between letting go of what could have been and accepting what is, one question simmers at the surface of Courtney’s mind: is love ever enough?

My Thoughts:

I like the fact that this book is a real life situation, the author writes well and with sympathy. The main character Courtney is fun loving and adventurous, then she meets Matt and settles down with him for good but is she missing the life she had before him? I felt drawn into the story.

White Lies & Wishes By Cathy Bramley

White Lies & Wishes By Cathy Bramley

white lies

What happens when what you wish for is only half the story…?

Three strangers and a funeral, that’s all it takes for these women’s lives and wishes to intersect. Death has a funny way of showing you what you really want out of life… or so they say, anyway.

Jo is flirty and a little after thirty, but what she really wants is to get her business back on track and conquer her fear of heights. That’s what she’ll say when asked, anyway. She has things to prove and finding love can always wait…

Sarah has the best of both worlds, baby in one hand and job in the other. All she wants is to get that promotion, then all those missed bath times will be worth it. So she says, anyway. She can’t stop to think about it too long or she might drop something…

All Carrie wants is to shift the excess pounds and look good for summer. Wearing a bikini is all she has ever desired. So she has always said, anyway. But it’s not the only weight she’s carrying, dark secrets from her past are threatening to surface…

So the three unlikely new friends set themselves a deadline to get their lives in order; juggling blokes, babies and bikini bottoms along the way. There’s nothing to stop them from achieving their dreams – except those little white lies we all tell…

My Thoughts:

I am a big fan of Cathy’s books, there is just something lovely about curling up with one of her books and escaping from everyday life. The story is about three women who get to know each other and become good friends. I loved reading each women’s story, it was real life. I warmed to all three women and felt as though I was part of their friendship.

The Girlfriend By Michelle Frances

The Girlfriend By Michelle Frances

the girlfriend

She loves your son. She wants your life. How far would you go to protect your son?

Laura has it all. A successful career, a long marriage to a rich husband, and a twenty-three year-old son, Daniel, who is kind, handsome, and talented. Then Daniel meets Cherry. Cherry is young, beautiful and smart but hasn’t led Laura’s golden life. And she wants it.

When tragedy strikes, a decision is made and a lie is told. A lie so terrible it changes their lives forever .

My Thoughts:

This is a psychological thriller at it’s best. I loved the fact that the places in this book are around where I live. They even mention Worcester park where I do actually live and there is a pet shop. Creepy. I was hooked from start till the end, I didn’t want to put this book down. I was surprised to learn this is a debut novel, I have a feeling more good things are going to be coming from Michelle and I look forward to them.

The Breakdown By B A Paris

The Breakdown By B A Paris

the breakdown

It all started that night in the woods.

Cass Anderson didn’t stop to help the woman in the car, and now she’s dead.

Ever since, silent calls have been plaguing Cass and she’s sure someone is watching her.

Consumed by guilt, she’s also starting to forget things. Whether she took her pills, what her house alarm is, and if the knife in the kitchen really had blood on it.

My thoughts:

I was really looking forward to the next book by B A Paris and I had previously loved Behind Closed Doors. All the characters are good but I found myself getting really annoyed with Cass, it is like if your getting phonecalls just turn your phone off or get a new one. I didn’t feel as though I connected with this book until near the end when there is a dramatic twist. Then I loved it, shame it came so late but I did enjoy it.
