This book focuses on topic of how women should face disappointment and bear burden of nonrealistic expectations.

.

.

She relates present scenario of social media and false perceptions superimposed over actual purpose of life. Once we fall for these traps, our happiness becomes elusive.
.

.
Author shares her own experiences like her grandmother’s life and illness, his husband’s tryst with destiny and recurrent failures.
.

.Story of how she evolved from etsy seller to blogger to speaker to book writer is fascinating.

.

.

She emphasises fact that one should avoid perfectionism and should avoid trap of proving themselves to others. Instead one should be caring, compassionate and supportive to others.

.You should enjoy the process and not the result. And sometimes one should go on even if dreams are partially worked out.

.

.
Book teaches that struggles are part of life and demolition is necessary for rebuilding one’s life.

Writing is simple and engaging but fluency is lagging at few points.

What I liked is use of familiar settings and relatable stories to which everyone can get attached.

.

.
.I liked the quote that,” one can’t be 99% free and call it freedom”.

.You could spot hidden advertising of Etsy and Amazon prime.

.

.
.Nice book to learn few things about pupose of life. It is a pacy read Which is free of unnecessary jargons or linguistics innovations.

Thanks edelweiss plus for review copy.
