DescriptionSmall Shoes: Outgrowing Old Relationships & Finding the Right Fit is a book about change. Throughout life you grow and evolve. Sometimes you change enough where the relationships you have with places, people, and situations are outgrown or simply do not fit into the vision of your future. Like shoes that once fit you so well, relationships become too “small,” out of “style,” or just too “old.” Whether it is the evolution of your relationship with a friend, lover, family member, money, job, belief system, or life style, Small Shoes has the guidance and answers to help you take that necessary step in the right direction!

Review:

 I received a free copy of this book for an honest review.

I’m not one to seek out self help books because most of them are just common sense presented in a new way. Such is the case with Small Shoes. Camille Licate uses the unusual analogy of shoes and her own personal stories of growth and change.

At the end of each chapter she has Gentle Reminders which sum up or magnify the point she’s making in that chapter. My favorites:

Gentle Reminder: Cherish the simple things in life- the magnificent tree outside your window, the hummingbird at the feeder, the rain falling on the pavement. Give with both hands open and watch the wonders you receive!

Gentle Reminder: Let life be a surprise and then it will surprise you back, often, as they say, when you least expect it!

Gentle Reminder: Focus on what makes you happy. By doing so, you will recognize what distracts you from your happiness.

This would be a good book to read if you’re needing a little inspiration or wanting to learn a little more about yourself. Available on Amazon and Barnes and Noble.
