A huge thank you out to Eidelweiss+ for sending me an ARC!
I really enjoyed reading Own Your Everyday by Jordan Lee Dooley. I liked how she showed her own faults and vulnerabilities in her stories to make a point to her readers about self-care and really just owning your day. It was empowering to slow down and take in her advice in today’s world that is go go go and go up go up go up. It really hit home for me, and she identified several spots where snags would set me back. I like that I can now think about the strategies she suggested to move past those snags. It was a great book and I hope to see more from Dooley in the future!
It has been a few days now since I finished reading Own Your Everyday and sent the above review to Eidelweiss+. Now that I have had more time to reflect on Dooley’s message I feel even more connected to it and it hits home even more. I grew up always having the pressure to do well, and to be better than others at school, sports, and more. When I left school and entered the work force I lost a lot of the regular praise that I had once received. I’ll admit, I still feel lost sometimes because I don’t think I know my true purpose or how to have a better balance in life so that I don’t require constant approval. This book definitely opened up a lot of soul searching I need to do. Maybe it will for you too.
Happy reading 🙂
