5 Life Changing Books

Happy Birthday to me! Today, I am thirty-three years young! The past few years have been absolutely riddled with challenges for me. And yet, somehow I know that my thirty-third year is going to be the best year of my life. In the past few months, I have taken gigantic leaps of faith; shown strength beyond anything I could have ever imagined; and set the wheels in motion to truly begin living the life that I have been dreaming about for so long.

I AM SO HAPPY! For the first time in a very long time, I can honestly say that I am happy down to my very core. With that in mind, this morning I want to share the five inspirational books that have had the biggest impact on my life. I thought about running through each of them and describing them, but instead, I am just going to list them. Rather than asking you to read what I think about them, I am asking you to pick them up and read them for yourself. I promise you that these books will change your life for the better.


1. The Four Agreements by Don Miguel Ruiz

2. The Alchemist by Paulo Coelho

3. The Power of Now by Eckhart Tolle

4. The Tao Te Ching by Wayne Dyer

5. Wild by Cheryl Strayed


Have you read any of these books? Do you agree with me? Also, what is the single most life-changing, inspirational book that you’ve ever read? Let me know in the comments. I am currently reading When Things Fall Apart by Pema Chodron, but I need some recommendations for when I am finished.

P.S. I will be releasing the first-edition of my new, monthly newsletter — Luminous — later today. There is still time to subscribe if you don’t want to miss it. xo

    Did you send out the newsletter? Because I didn’t get it and I’m definitely subscribed.
