If Life Stinks Get Your Head Outta Your But’s Review

If Life Stinks, Get Your Head Outta Your Buts: A No-Nonsense Guide to Happiness and SuccessThis has been one of the first self-help books that I have ever read, and it really changed how I view the genre! Wdowiak doesn’t talk down to his readers, and he teaches readers how to change their mindsets. He doesn’t act like he always followed his rules, which made him more relatable to his readers. I flew through the book all in one night, and I was motivated to work on some projects I had been putting off for ages the very next morning. I would recommend this book to both people who like self-help books and people who are wary about the genre. It is just that good!

Could you use some light in your life, some motivation to go after your dreams? Some inspiration to help you stay focused and in awe about what truly is possible for you?
We often forget that we are infinite beings, who can do, be and have anything our heart desires but we often get derailed by our negative and limiting thoughts, the illusions we live by that keeps us playing small because we fear change, we fear failure, or we simply don’t think more is in store for us.
If this sounds familiar then these Messages of Inspiration will bring back the light that has been missing in your life, each message holds a deeper meaning for you that only you can decipher for yourself. They are messages that only you will understand the true meaning behind each word. These messages will shine light onto the challenges you have been facing as well as guide you on setting yourself free from those negative patters, the gremlins that have been holding you back from stepping into your full potential and going after your dreams and heart desires.
On my search for more joy, happiness, success as well as fulfillment, I stumbled upon the Akashic Records and through my studying, I received the spiritual guidance to share these messages with the world and this is how these 365 messages came about; to bring you divine guidance from the Universe.
If you are at a point in your life where you are ready to step outside of your bubble, to claim what you truly desire, then these messages will help you stay motivated and inspired to take that next step onto your journey of great joy, happiness and success.
I promise that these messages will bring you great joy, inspiration and motivation to tackle each day and to help you stay on your path to never giving up, to keep moving forward and going after your dreams and creating the life your heart desires.
If you have had this longing to be, do and have more then don’t wait! Don’t be that person who envy’s others for all that they have, for the great lifestyle they live, for the amazing success they experience, for the joy and happiness they radiate. You too can create this lifestyle for yourself; believe that anything is possible, that you too can have all that your heart desires. Abundance, joy, happiness and great success is not something that is reserved for others; you too can create all the abundance, all the joy, all the happiness and all the success your heart desires.

This is about….1/3 of the books that I am currently in the middle of/starting to read. I have a lot of books to prepare for blog tours/library books that are due, and so I am trying to get through everything at once! Hopefully next week the number will be a bit more reasonable. I think that will happen once I get through the books that are taking me forever, which include Goliath and Sleepwalker.

Life with My Idiot Family: A True Story of Survival, Courage and Justice over Childhood Sexual Abuse Review

Life with My Idiot Family: A True Story of Survival, Courage and Justice over Childhood Sexual Abuse by [Picard, Kathy and Gary]

 

This novel is an inspirational story about a woman who had to fight her family, and eventually the government to receive the justice she deserved. She went from being a scared girl, who didn’t even understand that she was being abused by her father, to being a strong woman who wanted to fight for the rights of herself and other survivors. The pacing is perfect, and the novel takes you on a journey throughout her life, from abuse to advocacy.  I would recommend this book to anyone who is looking for a story about the life of a strong and inspirational woman.

The Radium Girls Review

The Radium Girls: The Dark Story of America's Shining Women

During the 1920s, radium was supposed to be a miracle element. The rich would put it in their water to make them healthier, and companies who made watches wanted women to paint it on the watch faces to make them glow. No one knew about the dangers of radium, and everyone wanted it. The girls who worked in the factories were so happy to have a job there, some dropping out of high school to work full time, and they were known around town due to their glow.

While in the factory, they were told to use their mouths to shape the small brush into a sharp point in order to better paint the radium onto the watch dial. Slowly, between the environment and the direct ingestion of the radium, the radium began to seep into the girls’ systems. Soon, many of the workers started to die suspiciously or become sick with abscesses in their mouths and jaws and deterioration of bones throughout their bodies. At first, the doctors claimed that the girls had a plethora of diseases, but soon they started tracking the diseases to the factory.

I have to say, reading this book shocked me. Many of the girls who worked in the factory were high school and college age, around the same age as me and my friends. They were drawn to work in the factories by the thought of making a decent salary at a fairly easy job. However, they did not know that working there was basically a death sentence due to the lip-pointing practice. Some of these girls would even paint the radium on their teeth and on their clothes so that they would shine as they attended parties. They were told that all of these things were completely safe, but it simply wasn’t.

The girls in this book die horrible, painful deaths. I could not imagine being in the pain that some of them were in, especially with the limited medicine of the 1930s. It was difficult to read, but it was absolutely necessary.

I believe that this story is also important because it discusses the greediness of the companies. Even when the companies were getting word of the radium possibly being poisonous, they refused to do their research, and simply moved their company out of the area so that none of the girls would hear about it. These young girls went for a job and were ruined for the rest of their lives, but the company refused to even acknowledge them for quite a number of years.

What people also don’t realize is that these same issues could affect people living in these areas today. Radium takes thousands of years to stop being radioactive, and this was simply 100 years ago. Even though the cities say that they did a cleanup, these girls went everywhere. They lived their normal lives, and the radium was on their clothes, in their bones, and on their shoes. Who knows if they have truly been cleaned up from the areas! How do you know if you cleaned up something properly if it is as thin as dust in the air? Simply putting it underground might not be enough, as it might start to seep up. Even the bones of these girls are still radioactive to this day, so are they willing to clean up graveyards? These are the questions that need to be answered, as the painful legacy of these girls could still live on to this day to the shoddy clean-up job.

I would recommend this book to anyone that wants to know more about American in the 1920s, prior to the Depression, with factories taking advantage of workers and people being duped into thinking that what was killing them was actually saving them.
