REVIEW AND GIVEAWAY OF EAT THE COOKIE...BUY THE SHOES BY J. MEYER



Eat the Cookie...Buy the Shoes: Giving Yourself Permission to Lighten UpThe book Eat the Cookie...Buy the Shoes: Giving Yourself Permission to Lighten Up by Joyce Meyer gives us permission to lighten up and enjoy life. 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.

My thoughts-

I have always felt guilty to buy something for myself. The book wants us to celebrate life and have fun. In the book, the author discusses many reasons why we should celebrate. We have all made mistakes in our lives, and the book says that we should not dwell on the past and move forward. She uses scripture to show that we are allowed to celebrate and be happy. There is a chapter in the book that encourages us to rest and give our soul a vacation by changing your attitude toward life and say a prayer. I have been very stressed in school and the book has helped me to learn to relax and enjoy life. I found the book enjoyable and easy to read. She used examples from her own life to show us that being disciplined is an important part of life we have a right to relax and celebrate.
