In Mari L McCarthy’s Mindset Medicine: A Journaling Power Self-Love Book, readers find the simplest, most effective tool to take control over their lives, experience deeper levels of inner freedom, and deepen their consciousness. In a world that is filled with media junk and aimless noise, this book will help readers learn to focus on what is absolutely essential. This book opens with a strong warning: “Your heart and soul are under siege by societal forces that don’t have your best interests in mind.” While it is easier to get lost in the maze of media trash that is thrown our way daily, this book proposes a path to taking control of our lives through inner work that includes journaling. It is a book that will help readers heal and find their purpose by asking the right questions, examining their feelings, listening to intuition and what their heart tells them.

The author articulates brilliantly on a variety of topics, including the secrets to discovering our gifts, the primacy of self-love, commanding respect, establishing rock-solid boundaries, the power of joy and laughter, the vital place of gratitude in the economy of life, celebrating wins for others, and a lot more. While these topics will sound familiar to fans of motivational books, it suffices to mention that Mari L McCarthy’s book is not a feel-good kind of material for readers. No, it is a book that compels readers to sit up, to become aware, and to work on themselves. From exploring how language limits us to demonstrating our freedom to map out our path to a life of purpose, this book provides insights about life that will change perspectives for many people. Here is one of the things I learned about the word “should:” It can single-handedly destroy dreams, and the author explains why: “That’s because the word should is so debilitating. It forces you into a small box in which you’re led to believe you’ve made a big mistake if you don’t do what other people believe you should do.”

Mindset Medicine: A Journaling Power Self-Love Book is more than an inspirational book. It shows readers how to transform their lives. The journaling prompts are thoughtful and intelligently designed to help readers explore the deep recesses of their hearts, check their outlook on life, and re-evaluate the way they see themselves. You won’t see yourself the way you used to after reading this book. It will change your life in surprising, yet positive ways. Mari L McCarthy’s engaging and authoritative voice doesn’t lack compassion and it arrests the heart powerfully. The commentaries are powerful and they highlight the social and cultural conundrum that readers face. Here is a book that will pull just anyone out of the murky waters of uncertainty and set them on the path towards living life on their own terms.
