In a world that moves at a crazy pace, we are often too caught up in our work and our daily routine to stop for a moment and ask ourselves if we are truly satisfied with what we have. We are busy providing for our family, but we never get the chance to spend quality time with our children and relatives. Then, what is the meaning of all this? What is the purpose of working and earning as much as possible if we cannot find the time to enjoy the results of our struggles? This is the life that the author of this book, Melisa Alaba, had before an accident caused her to take a step back and contemplate her present and future. As a Life Coach and Licensed Professional Counselor, she had long dedicated her life to helping people, but she overlooked the fact that she might be ignoring her own problems.
“Live Out Loud” is an inspiring, motivational book that will change the lives of many people. If you find yourself in a difficult situation when you’re not sure what to do in order to achieve happiness and a sense of achievement, then you absolutely need to read this book. Melisa Alaba talks from her own experiences, baking everything up with biblical principles that are bound to bring readers peace of mind, strength, and the blessing of positive thinking. At the beginning of the book she tells her own story, and many readers might realize they are in a similar situation as she was when her life began to change.
Like many people today, Melisa had a great career that took most of her time. She was so involved in what she was doing that she completely overlooked the fact that she wasn’t spending enough time with her children, and she wasn’t actually enjoying life. When a car accident caused her serious back problems, she found herself in the situation of giving up her job because she couldn’t go to the office anymore. Instead, she turned to prayer and meditation, being absolutely certain that God would help her heal. When that happened and she was completely recovered, she decided that her experience could help other people reawaken their spirit and live a life of purpose.
“Live Out Loud” is divided into 52 chapters that correlate to the 52 weeks of the year. There is a mindful idea for each week, and the chapters are full of exercises that can be done individually, with a partner, or in a group. They are short, but extremely powerful, which means that it won’t take readers too much time to do them, but they will offer quick results that will convince them to follow the entire program. The exercises are based on 11 principles that can help anyone learn how to live a fully aware life: abundance, acceptance, balance, commitment, connection, discovery, forgiveness, giving, gratitude, organization, and purpose. Once you embody these key concepts into your life, you will realize that you can finally live up to your fullest potential.
