Book Review: The Woman Code

Every woman lives by a code, whether she realizes it or not. It informs how she treats others and herself, how much she expects of herself, and how far she is willing to go in order to find success. But is the code we're living by truly helping us create the lives of purpose and fulfillment we desire? Or are we sacrificing the deeper things for mere achievement?

In this inspiring book, Sophia A. Nelson calls women to live out a powerful life code that will lead them to purposeful and successful lives. With the wisdom that comes from experience, Nelson reveals to women

· the true meaning of "having it all"
· how to take better care of their minds, bodies, and souls
· how to achieve professional excellence without compromising their values
· how to find lasting love and purpose in life beyond their accomplishments
· how to navigate the sisterhood of women, to build collaboration rather than competition
· how to heal from past hurts, rejection, and life's inevitable storms
· and much more

The Woman Code is a way of living, of navigating life's challenges, and of interacting positively with other women. It's a way of pursuing our dreams and our deepest desires. It reveals a universal and timeless set of principles of the mind, body, and spirit that help women balance the demands of work, home, family, and friendship. The Woman Code not only calls on women to practice purpose in their lives, it shows them how to do it with grace.

Right now, I'm in a rebuilding me period of my life. It's not an easy place to be, but I'm happy that I'm at a place where I want to do it. So often, as I fight the Bipolar demons, it's easy to just lay down and wait it out. This time, I'm taking babysteps to fight back and to find me in all of it. As part of that, I've been reviewing cookbooks, healthy living books and yes, self-help books. As someone with a degree in psychology, it's hard to resist that last category. This book is really meant for those of us who have come from dark places, not necessarily for those who have already found themselves. Even within the first chapter, I found myself nodding. I know that this is a book that will go up on my "self reference shelf."
