Book Review - Loving Yourself

About the Book 
From reality TV shows based on losing weight and body makeovers to a widespread increase in bullying among teens and extreme plastic surgery related stories making headlines, our culture is obsessed with self-image and sense of worth.  This past year the issue of body image was once again thrown into the spotlight when a Ralph Lauren model was photoshopped impossibly thin on the designer’s ad campaigns.  The model also reported that she was fired from the company for being too heavy. 

“In today’s culture, there is an overemphasis upon the outer package and not enough on self esteem, self respect, and self confidence,” says Sagal Omar, Founder of Inspirational Diaries.  “We need to offer women and young adolescents a vehicle to empower themselves by reconnecting with who they are from the inside.”   

Inspirational Diaries
Inspirational Diaries is a collection of journals and personal diaries aimed to provide a channel for people to reconnect with their inner self and help others embark on a journey of transformation, unconditional self-love and empowerment.  This fall, Inspirational Diaries is launching a new series of feel-good diaries called Loving Yourself.  Designed to tackle life’s daily struggles such as stress from work and family, the Loving Yourself diary begins with an introduction on how to love yourself.  Each day in the diary then displays a daily question, along with a powerful quote which is designed to move you to a joyful and fulfilling life. The diary questions how you have cared for your body and spirit as well as focusing on what you are grateful for, how you can help others, and making each day better than the next.  Each month follows a different quote theme.

“From Faceboook and Twitter to You Tube and microblogging, today’s world is about community and information sharing on a scale never seen before. We are so consumed by this hyperconnected world that we’ve lost a bit of the connectedness with each other, but most importantly with ourselves,” says Sagal.  “As extraordinary as technology is and the opportunities it has given us, technology also compresses our relationships into a convenient process that has made us detached.  I have spent the past 12 years studying personal development, self discovery and how we can love ourselves more. I am thrilled to launch my first collection of diaries; Loving Yourself is perfect for those who want to feel great about themselves.”

My Take on the Book 
Each day within this book makes you think very closely about who you are today and who you want to become. Each day you go through the exercises you are able to bring yourself closer to knowing yourself and becoming happier with the person that you are and loving the person that you want to be. I particularly enjoyed the daily quotes that are shared with the reader as they are motivational and come from men and women who are inspirational in their own rights.

This was a great book and will definitely start your new year off well!
