Review - Eat the Cookie, Buy the Shoes by Joyce Meyer
Title: Eat the Cookie, Buy the Shoes
Author: Joyce Meyer
Publisher: Hachette Book Group
Rating: You Gotta Read
Reviewed by: Val
Engrained in our culture is the belief that unbending discipline is the only sure way to success. You must go to the gym five times a week, never order the dessert, and don't even think about buying that dress you keep staring at in the store window. Breaking from such a regimented lifestyle is a sign of weakness, right? Wrong!-and Joyce wants to tell us why...
Though setting rules in our lives are important, it's just as important that we break them from time-to-time. Structure is a powerful tool, but when diverging from your own goals is seen as catastrophic, it can have a hugely negative effect on us. Balance is a core value in life and every once in awhile we deserve to indulge in a guilty pleasure or two. So don't feel bad about straying from your goals every once-in-awhile and in fact, embrace it: eat the cookie and buy the shoes!
Joyce Meyer has nailed it with Eat the Cookie, Buy the Shoes. She writes with a style that is perfect for me, straightforward and to the point with humor mixed in. Through personal stories, Ms. Meyer shows you that it's ok to let go, to indulge yourself once in a while for something you deserve. We all need something to help us along in life and sometimes it's just the little things that do the most good in our lives. Eat the Cookie, Buy the Shoes was a book written to help you give yourself the permission to lighten up on yourself, you deserve it! Through scripture, personal stories and humor, I found that this is a must have for any woman at any time in their lives. Let go of what you think you need and read something that was written just for you. Indulge in this luxury and you won't be disappointed.
