What Oprah says about books and reading:

“Books for me have always been a way to escape. I now consider reading a good book a sacred indulgence, time alone to be anyplace I choose. It is my absolute favourite way to spend time. What I know for sure is that reading opens you up. It exposes you and gives you access to anything your mind can hold. What I love most about reading—It gives you the ability to reach higher ground. A world of possibilities awaits you.”

This week’s sacred indulgence:


You Can Heal Your Life

First published in the 1980s, this book emphasizes that at the root of most of our problems or challenges you will find deep-rooted beliefs which become our reality. Beliefs such as “I’m not good enough”, “I’m not worthy of having money”, “nobody loves me” or “I never get my way” become entrenched in our minds, and later in life, we re-create our lives around these beliefs.

Year of Yes

Year of Yes

Year of yes gives an account of how saying YES saved and changed Shonda’s life for the better. It also inspires us to change our lives with one little word: YES – YES to getting out of our comfort zones. Shonda, who was shut down, tired, afraid, small and quiet, received a wake up call when her sister, Delorse, made a comment that she never says yes to anything.
