When I first started working outside of the home – one week ago today – I was mad. Mad for falling into the financial troubles we’d fallen into that made me have to get a job in the first place…mad at myself for having to do this to the kids – messing with their schedule…having to get used to a new kind of normal. Failing.
I’m still a little bothered for having to get a job outside the home, and for feeling like a failure with our finances, but after reading It’s Not Your fault and I can Prove it, by Steve Shenk – I’m beginning to see the good that can come from having this job…and things are actually starting to look up for me now.
It’s taken me a long time to do it, but I finally finished reading It’s Not Your Fault last night, and I can’t tell you enough, how much I loved reading it.
It’s hard to explain to you just why I loved this book so much, but in short – I walked away, after turning the last page, feeling confident. Confident with the choices I’ve recently had to make (getting a job, moving, etc.). And most importantly, confident in how it will all turn out. And even more than that – this book has made it easy to let go of some of the hurts I held onto and felt resentment towards – from my past…so that I can now move forward and be better for it today.
If you’ve ever felt guilt, remorse, low self-esteem, or loss of confidence – and you’re asking yourself “why me,” – this book is for you!
It’s Not Your Fault and I can Prove It
By Steve Shenk
Release: January 29th, 2013
Michael is the student representing all of us who want to know. The guardian is the personification of a great intelligence.
Like it or not, relationships are who we are and most of what we think we are. So lest we go on generation after generation of children puckering up from their fathers eating sour grapes, the human race needs an infusion of sanity and wisdom from time to time from the mystical society of intelligences known as The Guardians.
Again – I highly recommend reading this book. I loved it and believe you will too!
