Your journey

It has often been said that your goal or your dream is on the other side of your fear – this book exemplifies that and goes one step further and, simplifies it!

I recently purchased this book by Ruth Caukwell. Having worked in Mental Health for 35 years as a therapist and care giver I am always on the hunt for new and relevant material to assist my clients.

This book is one of the best I have come across. Although professionally written. it is laid out in a manner that most people could understand and relate to the material. The work book is an added bonus whereby people can work through the material at their own pace.

I look forward to using this book as a reference to assist my clients.and I’m sure I will find it helpful and relevant in my own life.

It is inspirational and well written.

I would highly recommend it to anyone who wishes to work on their own persona development

The Musings of a Blogger was so inspirational! Ms. Caukwell encourages her readers to embrace a positive approach in their lives and to remove negativity and doubt. She encourages people to challenge their thought patterns. Furthermore, she says that you can do anything you want to. Take a break and do something special just for you, she says. I was impressed with this author’s approach and I look forward to her future books!

I have greatly enjoyed ‘Musings of a Blogger’ by Ruth Anne Caukwell. It is a perfect book for anyone seeking to be happy, more positive, recover from low self-esteem or seeking to ‘find themselves’. Having experienced depression and anxiety for many years, this book has helped me to de-clutter my mind, heart and life from all the negativity that were keeping me captive. I love that this book includes a ‘work book’ so that what I read in the first part of the book, I can apply it to my own personal life and situation by making notes of my negative thoughts, positive thoughts, place negatives in the bin, write notes, draw pictures and even paint. This step is very important because we remember things more efficiently when we write them down, draw them, print out and place them on our fridge/wall so we can see them often and refer to them when life throws lemons at us.

A truly inspirational, self-help book written with so much love, hope and positivity!

Well done Ruth! You will help many lives on their journey to find themselves and re-discover a life free from depression, anxiety, low self-esteem and loneliness!! A must read!

This book came about because of the author having to deal with adult bullying. She wrote about her experiences of dealing and healing in a blog which resounded with a lot of people. She has created a work book for readers to work through to find their true selves. The book is written in an empathetic and supportive way, encouraging readers to make the right choices for them on life’s journey. It’s about discovering who you are and living out your dreams in a way that is right for you. The advice comes from a place of experience and support and would be helpful for someone who has been hurt or feels a little lost – and we all feel that at some stage in our lives.

A well-written and inspiring book. I devoured every word of it. It is a reminder for all of us to listen to our own inner voice and not rely on some hot shot self-help guru to sort our lives out. The author has connected with her inner voice and shares her findings in a gentle and encouraging way. She supports the reader in finding his or her own voice which to me is what self-help is all about. Self-help shouldn’t become complicated and Ruth Caukwell achieves to keep it simple. She uses beautiful metaphors to highlight her points. Everything in this book corresponds with what my own inner voice has been revealing to me over the years. The exercises in the second part of the book are creative, practical and well-balanced. Give your soul a bubble bath with this refreshing book.

This is a truly genuine, heartfelt offering from an author who wants to share the ‘how’s and why’s’ of her journey that have led to great joys and peace in her own life with hopes that others will be helped and encouraged to take on their own changes and new perspectives. Lots of tools, references, and resources to choose from here plus the authentic nudge for each reader to invest the personal time you need and deserve to find your own unique balanced space.
