National Read Across America Day: Top Pick for Moms

In honor of today as the National Read Across America Day Mason and his classmates will be reading throughout the day. Mostly Dr. Seuss books I believe since he was encouraged to bring his favorite book with him and of course it is a Dinosaur related Dr. Seuss Book. But I wanted to encourage you today to pick up a book and read for a good 30 minutes! And not just any book, but a book that will help you feel strong, empowered, sexy, confident and like a total badass that can accomplish anything! Here are my favorite picks to check out, and most can be ordered on Amazon Kindle if you are in to that thing. Always be sure to support your local library too as these books are also often carried there!

Girl Confident: There is nothing sexier than a confident woman in this world (only available on Kindle Unlimited)

This book helps you to realize that if you believe in yourself, you are unstoppable. This is a tongue-in-cheek guide for millennial women who are embracing a journey to find themselves. The author is from Mongolia but she earned her bachelor's degree in business at University of Colorado. After graduation, she moved to Seattle to find a job and recently she moved back to Mongolia. You will find out about what she has learnt so far about life and everything including dating in a digital age, travelling, surviving in a foreign country and how she learnt to love working out when there was nothing she hates more than exercising. The book also includes topics from finding confidence, getting over rejections, personal finance, and finding your strength after a break up. This book is perfect for anyone who is going through times ;-)


Brené Brown- Rising Strong: The Reckoning. The Rumble. The Revolution.

Social scientist BrenĂ© Brown has ignited a global conversation on courage, vulnerability, shame, and worthiness. Her pioneering work uncovered a profound truth: Vulnerability—the willingness to show up and be seen with no guarantee of outcome—is the only path to more love, belonging, creativity, and joy. But living a brave life is not always easy: We are, inevitably, going to stumble and fall.

It is the rise from falling that Brown takes as her subject in Rising Strong. As a grounded theory researcher, Brown has listened as a range of people—from leaders in Fortune 500 companies and the military to artists, couples in long-term relationships, teachers, and parents—shared their stories of being brave, falling, and getting back up. She asked herself, What do these people with strong and loving relationships, leaders nurturing creativity, artists pushing innovation, and clergy walking with people through faith and mystery have in common? The answer was clear: They recognize the power of emotion and they’re not afraid to lean in to discomfort.

Walking into our stories of hurt can feel dangerous. But the process of regaining our footing in the midst of struggle is where our courage is tested and our values are forged. Our stories of struggle can be big ones, like the loss of a job or the end of a relationship, or smaller ones, like a conflict with a friend or colleague. Regardless of magnitude or circumstance, the rising strong process is the same: We reckon with our emotions and get curious about what we’re feeling; we rumble with our stories until we get to a place of truth; and we live this process, every day, until it becomes a practice and creates nothing short of a revolution in our lives. Rising strong after a fall is how we cultivate wholeheartedness. It’s the process, Brown writes, that teaches us the most about who we are.

Jillian Michaels- Unlimited: A 3-Step Plan for Achieving Your Dreams

See the glass as half full.


Believe it and it will come.

• Take powerful, informed, deliberate actions to make your dreams a reality.

Forget surviving: it’s your time to thrive. You do have the ability and potential to achieve unlimited health, wealth, and happiness.
