What Would Frida Do?

What Would Frida Do?

Author: Arianna Davis Format: Hardback Release Date: 12/11/2020

A contemporary guide to life, love, and happiness inspired by the extraordinary artist Frida Kahlo. Revered as much for her fierce spirit as she is for her art, Frida Kahlo stands today as a brazen symbol of daring creativity. She was a woman ahead of her time whose paintings have earned her generations of admirers around the globe. But perhaps her greatest work of art was her own life. What Would Frida Do? explores the feminist icon's signature style, outspoken politics, and boldness in love and art, even in the face of pain and heartbreak. The book celebrates her larger than life persona as a woman who loved passionately and lived ambitiously, refusing to remain in her husband's shadow. Each chapter shares intimate stories from her life, revealing how she overcame obstacles by embracing her own ideals. In this charming read, author Arianna Davis conjures Frida's brave spirit, encouraging women to persevere, to create fearlessly, and to stand by their own truths.

Find Your Mantra

Find Your Mantra

Author: Editors of Rock Point Format: Hardback Release Date: 22/09/2020

The Find Your Mantra journal is a beautifully designed tool to help you transform your life through the power of positive affirmations. Mantras-positive phrases repeated during meditation to ignite optimism in daily life-are tools to help you construct your perfect mind palace and share your light with the people you cherish. Having a personal mantra can put you in the right mindset to seek out your best self. The exercises and guided meditations in Find Your Mantra help you reflect on your personal experiences in peace, love, happiness, strength, your individual journey, and more. Powerful journal prompts will help manifest each carefully selected mantra into a reality full of optimism, positivity, and mindfulness. Discover simple methods to be a little kinder to yourself, guidance on how to open your heart and mind to the life that you deserve, and uplifting affirmations to bring inspiration into your life. Some mantras, mantra actions, and prompts include: EVERYTHING WILL BE ALRIGHT. The dark is greedy, but you are bright. During meditations (or just when times are tough) flutter the eyelids closed. Elongate your neck and tilt your chin ever so slightly toward the sky. Find the sun in the dark. Everything will be alright. How can you open your heart and allow in more light? NO REGRETS. Remove the word mistake from your vocabulary. You no longer mess up; you only open yourself up to opportunities for learning and growth. You only participate in happy accidents. Welcome the wrong because from the foulest compost comes the most beautiful flowers. When was the suffering worth the yes! you committed to? BE THE CHANGE Always remember to be the change that you wish to see in the world and in your life. When a butterfly enters its chrysalis, it does not simply morph into a butterfly but it becomes liquid, shedding the vestiges of its former life entirely so that it can transform into its true body. Be this change; be something so entire and complete that you can't remember how gravity confined you to the ground for so long. How will you embrace change? Whether you use this journal to help you grow in love and friendship or for little everyday pick-me-ups, Find Your Mantra will fortify your inner voice, and bring insight into your day-to-day life to empower your dreams.

Be Happy: A Journal

Be Happy: A Journal

Author: Editors of Rock Point Format: Hardback Release Date: 08/09/2020

Be Happy: A Journal is here to help you find sustainable happiness in the well of yourself. With a focus on the power of choice, follow the prompts in this beautifully designed journal to find and follow your unique path to success. Happiness is a transient emotional state. We frequently think of it as a place we're trying to get to, but happiness is more a constant process rather than a destination. Prompts in the Be Happy: A Journal will ask you to reflect on the choices you are currently making versus the choices you will be prompted to write about and explore. Sometimes our choices are unconscious, and it's not until we are presented with alternatives that we realize we've been sabotaging ourselves all along. We must think about the daily choices that determine (a) the emotional states we want to embody, and (b) the personal values we can connect with along the way. If you're a fan of fast -not necessarily in the quick-fix kind of way, but in a this-fits-easily-into-my-day kind of way-then this journal (and journey!) is for you. A hardworking set of tools that you can access on your own terms, in your own time. This journal is organized into nine sections, each one asking you to choose an important part of living a full life, and determine how you may or may not have been doing so thus far. As you go through the prompts, you may find that you are following the right path. If that is the case, think deeper on how you can push yourself further; there's always room for improvement. If this has not been your path, use the prompts and hardworking tools to map a new path to success, and make a deep commitment to changing your way of thinking. The prompts in this journal will focus on diving deep into your personal power, the power you have in choosing emotional states and values that help you to live a full life based on what's important to you deep down. You'll be encouraged to put these lessons to work and look at ways you can cement positivity into your everyday life. After taking time to look inward while answering these prompts and identifying which parts of your life you'd like to change, focus your energy toward making an actual difference. Hard to hold on to, difficult to find, and some days, not much more than a memory, happiness is still a part of us and what we as humans seek out, even when it eludes us. Luckily, thriving is a psychological state that doesn't just rely on positive feelings like happiness, but on the daily choices we make. Want to live a rich, vital, fulfilling life? Choose your focus. Choose your actions. Congratulations on acknowledging that you can get more out of life. The happiness habits you cultivate will show you how. Let's go!
