This book is about affirmations, but these 8 words alone have the power to change everything:
“Something needs to change, and it’s probably me.”
Talk about taking control! And staying accountable! I know, I know. That’s not what you wanted to hear. ‘Me? I’m the problem? That’s reeeeeally interesting, Jess. Like I can help the things that happen to me and the way other people treat me.’
You’re not wrong, but you always have a choice in how you treat others, and how you respond to the things and people around you. You can act, rather than react. You can come from a better place than one of anger, resentment, blame, and denial.
This book is packed with good advice, amazing guidance, and ways to take back your life from whatever it is that’s controlling it now, Whether it’s addiction, financial trouble, toxic behavior, relationship issues, habitual bad habits, or straight up denying any part in the direction of your life.
Whether you’re tethered to your phone or you turn to food for comfort; whether you’re a perfectionist and can’t let things go or are too afraid to fail to even try; whether you can find intimacy only on the Internet or you’ve been involved in a string of nasty relationships—the first step toward feeling better about yourself and your life is the realization that you are what’s standing in your way. Gratitude and Trust is an essential, inspirational, and uplifting guide to identifying and changing maladaptive behaviors in order to uncover your most productive, healthiest self.
