Start Where You Are


The book Start Where You Are is filled with journaling prompts and quotes to help motivate as well as inspire the reader.

My favorite quotes found in the book:

Live in the sunshine.  Swim in the sea.  Drink in the wild air.  (Ralph Waldo Emerson)

Fears are paper tigers.  (Amelia Earhart)

It is never too late to be what you might have been.  (George Eliot)

Dismiss whatever insults your own soul.  (Walt Whitman)

To live is the rarest thing in the world.  Most people exist that is all.  (Oscar Wilde)


Struck by Lightning – A Review


The book “Struck by Lightning” is written by Chris Colfer (an actor of the hit show Glee).

The main character (Carson Phillips) is a teenager with a bad attitude and a cynical view of the world.  He is driven to overcome his circumstances and determined to be successful in his life.

The book will cause you to laugh and at other times, leaving shaking your head with dismay.  I found it interesting, compelling, and overall really enjoyed the book.  However, I did not care for the ending.

I recommend the book and give it an A-
