Steve Shenk is a food expert and founder of the eFoodsDirect gourmet storable food company, and he used his experiences with many different people to write his very inspiring book.
On top of being a mom of four, I also go to school full time, and I was worried about committing to reading and reviewing a book on a time schedule, but I love to read, and decided I could do it. Well, once I started the book, it was very easy to finish.
I really enjoyed the style of writing, he makes his points very relevant to the reader and easy to understand.
Steve Shenk takes you through his book with the voices of Michael, the student, and The Guardian, a wise teacher. Michael would represent most of us, going through life making decisions on life choices and relationships. The Guardian reanalyzes these choices with Michael and shows him how to take a different perspective on his views, and how that new perspective can save him from dealing with unpleasant feeling in life, such as guilt, anxiety, stress, depression, fear, misery and pain.
The Guardian shows Michael the steps to take to go back to our first instincts of happiness, joy, success, and peace. The Guardian takes Michael step by step in showing him how to recognize the "Trash" that clutters his life, and how to remove it from his life.
The book is full of wisdom quotes from the Guardian, which I really enjoyed reading. One of my favorites was:
"A most important law that we all must remember is that when someone acts or speaks in a negative was toward us it is never about us, it is always about them. Believe it. It is always about them. Think about it." The Guardian.
A major point in the book is for us to forget about the past, to move forward, and to stop looking for blame. Everyone makes mistakes, the Guardian helps you forgive yourself.
I really found this book inspiring in many ways. I found it easy to relate to, and after reading this book I love that I don't feel too overwhelmed about making positive changes in my life.
