Life is Too Short Book Review


Life is Too Short Collection

Are you looking for a fabulous life boost today? The Life is Too Short series is just what you need. Written by Connie Sokol—mother of seven, author, speaker, and amazing matching sock finder—these humorous self-development columns give you just the right amount of fun and functional. Originally written for a major newspaper and magazines, you can now enjoy the entire collection in one book. Put your feet up and laugh as you relate to time-tested tips on being a woman, wife, and mother. You'll learn the cozy stuff of how to adjust expectations, have faith in your dreams, and lighten up in motherhood. And, you'll learn a few life skills such as easy spring cleaning, simplifying the holidays, and creating successful goals. It's the perfect gift for any woman! Short, funny, insightful, these quick power columns are ideal anytime, anywhere, to rejuvenate your mind and soul.

My Review:
If your spirits are down, if you need a good laugh, or just a good dose of therapy, this book is a must read. I laughed until my sides hurt at the many hilarious, real-life experiences Connie shares as she offers women a healthy reality-check.
Here are some of my favorite lines and titles:

"Superwoman needs to hit hyperspace."

"Therapy by Harry!" (Yes, as in Harry Potter.)

"It's time to squeeze the guilt sponge and let the guilt drain out."

Love is Like a Leaky Faucet


Stop Being a Bossy Pants

As women we tend to push ourselves harder than anyone else we know, but The Life is Too Short Collection invites us to take a step back and look at life's bigger picture. The messages in this collection will make you think about your own life and learn, as Connie's often humorous, often exasperating experiences show, to not take yourself, or life too seriously.

I love how each section is only a couple pages long. Even on the most hectic days, I can find a moment to get a dose of laughter and heart that bolsters my confidence and strength to face the day while improving my self-worth and relationships with others a little at a time. What could be better? I definitely agree this is a great gift for any woman in your life who feels overwhelmed, including you. Mother's Day shopping, done!
