Becoming Enough: A Heroine’s Journey to the Already Perfect Self

Amanda Johnson. Flower of Life Press, $15.99 trade paper (190p) ISBN 978-0-6928-7503-2
In this inspiriting work, Johnson, a teacher and radio-show host, explains how she overcame perfectionism and self-loathing. Small discouragements in Johnson’s childhood planted seeds of doubt about her worthiness. The more she allowed that story to develop over the years—through a divorce and exploring a number of religions—the more she felt like a failure who could never achieve the perfection she demanded of herself. She awakened to the impossibility of her thought process after reading works by Eastern-influenced spiritualists Eckhart Tolle and Michael A. Singer. Judgment is a man-made disease, she decided. She began to observe rather than obsess and became curious rather than critical. She listens to an inner voice who gives her permission to be imperfect and who talks through her battles with self-judgment and ego. Johnson’s book will mentor readers to notice negative thought patterns, learn to trust their instincts, and find freedom. (BookLife)
