During the fall of 2020, I began menopause after a rough five years in perimenopause. I had written my first book the summer before and felt like it was a healing process. It was after I sent it to my friend and editor that I had found a book that changed the course of my life. Through this one book, I began a maze of books that began my healing from the inside out, which I dubbed “soul homework”.
A few months after I sent my book to my friend to edit, I had a gut feeling that I needed her to stop editing. Unbeknownst to me, she could only edit the preface and first chapter of the book. When I went back and re-read the entire book, I had written from a perspective that I didn’t recognize, and I was shocked at the words in front of me.
In the “worst” year of our lives, I finally learned to be present in my life and I wanted to share it with all of you. I began writing Universe-Ism posts, but only occasionally so as not to scare the hell out of my readers because I am a humor writer. But this shit was too good to be true, and as someone with mental health stuff going on in her brain, I knew others could benefit from what I was learning.
I am linking each book to a website called Bookshop.org. If you’ve never heard of them, read their mission here. It is the perfect antidote to Amazon. I am not an Amazon-hater, but I really want to support local bookstores and libraries on this journey.
Here is a blog post I wrote on how to begin your own soul homework step by step.
These are the books I read, in the order that I read them.
I will add more books as I finish them.
