I will start off by saying I did not really enjoy this book at all. I honestly thought it was kind of stupid. I liked maybe a few quotes in the book and that was it.
This book is about being in your 20s and how to handle all the stress in your life but I didn't think it really helped me feel better at all. Another thing I did not like was how the author kept stressing that GOD had a plan for her but that is not true. I am tired of people thinking that GOD has a will for us and we just live it according to his plan. That is not true. GOD does not have a will for us, we live the life the best we can and sometimes unforeseen occurrences happen but GOD does not cause suffering or anything like that. In the scripture Eccl 9:11 it says this: "Time and unforeseen occurence befall them all." And to prove in a scripture that GOD does not cause suffering see the scripture James 1: 13, which reads " When under trial, let no one say I am being tried by GOD, for with eveil things GOD cannot be tried nor does he himself try anyone." So I am tired of the misconceptions going around of people who claim to know GOD but say false things about him and give GOD a bad name.
I did however like this quote the author says " I have permission not to stress over the opinions of others; instead I can focus on what GOD thinks of me and where I stand in his eyes." At the end of the day its how GOD views us and how we live our lives not what other people think. I also liked the quote on page 50. Brittany said ".... It doesn't mean that I don't have room for improvement in any of these areas, but that I am only motivated to make changes by GOD's will and not by the judgement of others." I like this because at the end of the day we do whats best for our-self and for GOD and if people want to judge us when we know we are not doing anything wrong then we will not be hurt by their judgement and just let it pass over us.
I also liked the quote on page 140 which reads from a person named Elle " A low maintenance friend is one who shares and listens and doesn't require constant care." I really like that definition of a friend.
I will probably end up throwing this book away and not sharing it with everyone but it was a book that for a moment got me sidetracked from my life and I needed that so it wasn't all bad.
