I’ve had 15 or so years of psychotherapy.
Yep. Half my life. The better half.
I asked for it for Christmas at 13 years old.
Psychotherapy is but one of the notches on my branch to spiritual enlightenment (I said ‘on my way’) and radiant meaningful work in the world.
You know what played perhaps the biggest role? Books.
I venture to guess that for every exhale I’ve made I’ve given a book recommendation. Few of these books will be new to you, I imagine. Some are best sellers. Others are Oprah-approved. Do not be turned off by this or their location in the ‘self-help’ department. These books are popular because they are excellent and they labeled ‘self-help’ because they assist you to do just that.
Through these books I’ve experienced paradigm shifts that no one will ever be able take from me.
I’ve had concepts explained to me that I could never have understood from any other voice.
These books gave me words when I had none.
I’ve been validated, found kinship, and felt my connection to you and you and you simply because of the books I have read.
Here are 11 that have changed my life. One for every month of the year and a month off to digest.
Personally, I think this list is worth big bucks. If you read these books – you’re life will almost certainly get more awesome.
But it’s free and I invite you to read up.
