Untamed by Glennon Doyle
This is a must-read for all of you people-pleasers out there (including myself). Untamed is a self-help book and memoir about finding your voice and being yourself. A journey towards self-love. We work hard to be decent spouses, girls, moms, employers, and friends. We hope that all of our efforts will help us feel alive. Instead, it leaves us exhausted, stalled, overwhelmed, and underwhelmed. We look around at our life and wonder ‘Wasn't it meant to be more lovely than this?’
We instantly suppress that question, urging ourselves to be thankful and concealing our dissatisfaction, even from ourselves. Doyle walks us through her own process of letting go of other people's expectations and strengthening and trusting her own voice. The key lesson? To prevent failing yourself, it is your responsibility to let down as many people as necessary over your whole life.
The High 5 Habit by Mel Robbins
The High 5 Habit is a self-help book that attempts to assist anybody who struggles with self-limiting beliefs to take control of their lives by developing a morning routine, avoiding negative criticism, and redefining their lives through optimism and confidence.
According to Robbins, all it takes to change your attitude and perspective is a simple habit, giving your reflection a high five in the mirror and a basic morning ritual, which she refers to as the ‘High 5 Habit.’ You may think it sounds foolish (That's what I thought too), but after a week of attempting it, I realized it all boils down to my connection with myself and being my own greatest cheerleader. Don’t wait until you get a promotion, lose weight, or find love to be happy. You deserve to be happy right now.

Things No One Will Tell Fat Girls, which features eminent guest writers, is an encouragement to all women to reject fat discrimination, embrace their bodies, and join the most progressive and revolutionary movement possible: the campaign to transform the world through self-love and body acceptance.
Everything Baker says in this book is supported by research, making it not only entertaining to read but also increasing the credibility of her counsel. We could all use the advice Baker offers on simply being ourselves without apology. 2023 is all about self-love ladies!
