REVIEW:

*Book Received in Exchange for Honest Opinion/Review*

I internally squealed…okay, and maybe a bit out-loud when this arrived in the mail and I was awarded a coveted spot on this blog tour. What a lot of you don’t know is I am obsessed with planning and organizing, to the point where I will shamelessly admit my closet is color coated and sorted by sleeve length. I just love organizing and this workbook provided me with a way to re-think how I feel about things in my life. It was really about re-directing your thought process and almost converting me from a girl-half empty glass to a girl-half full glass.

Everytime you open the workbook you are to spend five minutes doodling, anything and everything that comes to your mind. I praised the Heavens that I was the only one to see my horrendous doodles but it was an excellent way to get the creative juices flowing. Then the book proceeds to break down your life. What are your priorities, where do you want to go. It really deconstructs and reconstructs your life. All while making me smile with the cute motivational messages and inspirational statements.

Design the Life You Love doesn’t make you feel overwhelmed by the daunting task of re-focusing and re-prioritizing your life but breaks it down into something whimsical and fun. Granted you aren’t going to see instantaneous results but life is a journey and Design the Life You Love is something you want for the trip!
