Books that inspire me
I suffer from bouts of loneliness (no surprises there!). I know that I need to remain connected to myself, to others and to my community. I learned this while getting help through a coach, doing some intense self-reflection and reading many books on the importance of connection and authenticity.
Authentic connection is really hard to do when working through the thoughts and feelings associated with loneliness. I find that the simple act of reading or writing helps centre me and connect me to myself. I find talking connects me to others. Words help me.
But I remind myself that things in life don't change simply because I've read a book. Things in life change when I do things differently. Reading is easy; the beauty is in the doing.
I want to share the words written by others that have changed me and opened my mind and inspired me to put the authentic me into the world.
