Top books to read in your 20’s

Greetings from cloudy New York!

Please tell me spring has arrived in your neighborhood.

Sorry for the late post, I have been celebrating my birthday since yesterday, and I finally got my head straight.

In my twenties, I was searching to find myself because life seemed so uncertain. The adulthood thing was something I wanted to master from the inside out to be a good mom and human being.

Here are some books that had a positive impact on my life:

Four Agreements by Miguel Ruiz


In The Four Agreements, bestselling author don Miguel Ruiz reveals the source of self-limiting beliefs that rob us of joy and create needless suffering. Based on ancient Toltec wisdom, The Four Agreements offer a powerful code of conduct that can rapidly transform your life to a new experience of freedom, true happiness, and love.

The Mastery of Love by Miguel Ruiz


Another excellent book by author Miguel Ruiz. This book is so useful if you are experiencing fearful beliefs and assumptions that undermine love and lead to suffering and drama in our relationships. Ruiz shows us how to heal our emotional wounds, recover the freedom and joy that is our birthright, and restore the spirit of playfulness that is vital to loving relationships. The Mastery of Love includes: • Why “domestication” and the “image of perfection” lead to self-rejection • The war of control that slowly destroys most relationships • Why we hunt for love in others, and how to capture the love inside us • How to finally accept and forgive ourselves and others “Happiness can only come from inside of you and is the result of your love. When you are aware that no one else can make you happy, and that happiness is the result of your love, this becomes the most exceptional mastery for your future.

The Road Less Traveled by M. Scott Peck, MD


The book explores the very nature of loving relationships and leads us toward a new serenity and fullness of life. It helps us learn how to distinguish dependency from love; how to become a more sensitive parent; and ultimately how to become one’s own authentic self.

The Seven Spiritual Laws of Success by Deepak Chopra


This is a book you that you will cherish for a lifetime! Deepak Chopra reveals secrets to making all your dreams come true. Based on natural laws that govern all of the creation that shatters the myth that success is the result of hard work, exacting plans, or driving ambition. Instead, Chopra offers a life-altering perspective on the attainment of success: When we understand our true nature and learn to live in harmony with natural law, a sense of well-being, good health, fulfilling relationships, and material abundance spring forth easily and effortlessly.
