The book that changed my life!
Reader ANGELA GARDENER explains how The Courage to Be Creative: How to Believe in Yourself, Your Dreams and Ideas and Your Creative Career Path by Doreen Virtue inspired her.
‘I really feel that I came across this book at exactly the right time in my life, when I needed its help most.
It was 2005 and I was having a really tough time with some problem neighbours, suffering racial harassment, while caring for my mum who had breast cancer – thankfully she’s recovered now – but the stress of it all made me very ill.
Eventually I was able to move to a home in a different part of the estate, looking out over a forest, and things began to look up.
Moving was the easy bit though, healing my battered self-esteem was tougher and that’s where Doreen’s book helped. I bought a copy after I heard her mention it in one of her weekly Youtube videos.
It struck a chord with me as it’s about finding the courage and self-belief to make positive changes in your life, and finding a bigger purpose. It helped me to recover my sense of self-worth and start putting myself first.
It also gave me the courage to launch my One Woman Power website to encourage women to discover and appreciate their inner riches. I don’t believe I could have done this without Doreen’s inspiring book. It really did change my life. Visit one-woman-power.org
