  1. INSPIRATION/ MOTIVATION…#inspiration #motivation



There are many books that have inspired me, a few of which had a big influence on me during this past year.




Regina Brett – is a New York Time’s best selling author, newspaper columnist currently writing for The Plain Dealer and The Cleveland Jewish News and she is an inspirational speaker.

“GOD NEVER BLINKS. 50 lessons for life’s little detours” – When Regina Brett turned 50, she wrote a column on the 50 lessons life had taught her. She reflected on all she had learned through becoming a single parent, looking for love in all the wrong places, working on her relationship with God, battling cancer and making peace with a difficult childhood. It became one of the most popular columns ever published in the newspaper, and since then the 50 lessons have been emailed to hundreds of thousands of people. Brett now takes the 50 lessons and expounds on them in essays that are deeply personal. From “Don’t take yourself too seriously-Nobody else does” to “Life isn’t tied with a bow, but it’s still a gift,” these lessons will strike a chord with anyone who has ever gone through tough times–and haven’t we all?

“GOD IS ALWAYS HIRING. 50 lessons for finding fulfilling work“ – is a collection of stories and essays to inspire you to find the job of your dreams, to make your current job more magical, or better yet, discover your mission in life. (source of description: Regina Brett’s official site)



“BE THE MIRACLE. 50 lessons for making impossible possible”Want to live your dreams–or even surpass them? Want the world to change for the better? Want to see a miracle? What are we waiting for? Why not be the miracle?
That’s the challenge Regina Brett sets forth in BE THE MIRACLE. To be a miracle doesn’t necessarily mean tackling problems across the globe. It means making a difference, believing change is possible, even in your own living room, cubicle, neighborhood, or family.

Through a collection of inspirational essays, Regina shares lessons that will help people make a difference in the world around them. The lessons come from Regina’s life experience and from the lives of others, especially those she has met in her 24 years as a journalist. Each chapter is a lesson that can stand alone, but together they form a handbook for seeing the miracle of change everywhere.

With upbeat lessons from “Do Your Best and Forget the Rest” to “Sometimes It’s Enough to Make One Person Happy,” these lessons will help you accept and embrace yourself, challenge and change yourself, and better serve others. (source of description: Amazon)
