In this fast paced world, we have literally forgotten how to stop and smell the roses.  Our fast paced lives often feel meaningless.  With technology, we have the world at our fingertips.  Yet in this 21st century we are feeling more and more unfulfilled in our lives.  “The Art & Science of Loving Yourself First” gives you the tools and insights for turning your life into one of enjoyment versus one filled with constant struggle and pain.

The important message for me in the reading of “The Art & Science of Loving Yourself First” is the re-realization that I am quick to put aside my desires, wants, agenda, etc. to care and do for others.  In doing that, I don’t take care of myself.  I loved the sentence, “And so it began, my quest for living my life on my own terms.” I decided while reading about simplifying my life that I would again begin my quest, my journey for living my life – fully. My life needs to be lived fully in order to fulfill my purpose. Living my life by doing for others at the expense of living mine fully must stop.  A tough love message that I am grateful to hear once again. ~Lorraine Lane, Lane Business Consulting, http://LaneBusinessConsulting.com/
