Let Yourself Be: A past you must embrace

by CJ Lacsican

Biography / Autobiography The Real World

LoveReading View on Let Yourself Be: A past you must embrace

A really inspirational thought-provoking book. Whilst this is not a self-help book as such, each chapter poses a question that reveals a little bit more about the author and also gets you asking the same question and promotes self-reflection and self-awareness but not in the typical way that books of this kind normally do. Written with a feeling of part journal/part travel diary the author mixes the two topics really well and got me thinking about the metaphor of travelling as a journey much like the life journey. Travelling by not only means of escaping but actually travelling has enabled the author to become more independent, grow, change, learn, make mistakes and enabled self-reflection, developed intrinsic values and deepened self-confidence. The book does not seek out to offer solutions but does so in the way of asking questions and through worked examples of what has helped CJ get through some of her toughest times. An extremely difficult and complex childhood traumatic event is described and the strength of character and honesty surrounding the conflicting emotions at the time evokes a sense of inspiration. I am glad I read the book, it gave me things to think about and a longing to travel. CJ Lacsican- I am celebrating your win.

Let Yourself Be: A past you must embrace Synopsis

Why do I sometimes feel lost? Empty? Sometimes, I feel like I'm drifting?just being moved through the tides because I don't know what else to do. There are far too many expectations. It's exhausting to measure up. I seem to be busy, but I'm uncertain of where I'm headed or if I'm doing the right things. When is it good enough? If you have any of these questions, then this book is for you.

Author CJ Lacsican won't answer them for you. Instead, with you, she looks back at her personal and career journeys as she inspires you to do the same. Let Yourself Be is a nontraditional life story?raw, inspiring, and fascinatingly filled with life's complexities. Through struggles, but with grace and humour, she shares her inner thought processes, tragedies, pain, triumphs, and the relentless pursuit to better herself.

At eight years old, CJ became the strongest at her darkest of hours. She hopes to awaken every reader?to encourage them to embrace and learn from their pasts, challenge themselves and the direction they are headed, and face the world with gratitude and optimism. As a photography enthusiast, CJ also gives you a glimpse of her favourite photos from across the world.
