Bounce Back Book Review
Bounce Back - When Your Heart is Empty and Your Dreams are Lost
The title grabbed me and I couldn't wait to see what Julie Clinton had to say in this book. I think we all have had dreams that have been lost at some point or another and we wonder what if... I certainly had plans for my own life and battling Crohn's Disease or fighting for my life after having the twins were not a part of that plan. Even still today I think about those dreams that have gone by the wayside when things didn't go according to my own plan.
In Bounce Back, Clinton tells women about her 3 B's. She says we need to Breathe, Believe, and Bounce Back. The rest of the chapters in the book build on those 3 B's and give specific examples of women she has encountered and their life stories and how these women have dealt with the loss and disappointments in their lives. Some have dealt in constructive ways and others have not, but are learning how.
I thought this book was thoughtful and useful for anyone who has felt the sting of disappointment that life didn't turn out the way they hoped, or someone who is perhaps grieving a loss of some sort. Clinton's practical steps, using the 3 B's seems overly simplistic, but I am willing to give it a try. Bottom line: Read the book, ladies. I think you'll be blessed.
I received a copy of this book free from Worthy Publishing in exchange for an honest review. I am not obligated to give it a positive rating, but I do recommend it.
