I received the book, “Where Will You Go From Here?” by Valorie Burton, through Blogging For Books. I chose this book over the others offered because of the subtitle: Moving Forward when Life Doesn’t Go As Planned. It seemed appropriate that I get some advice as I move through this latest life change. I am currently looking for a job and evaluating career goals, etc., so I thought using this book to help examine things would be good.
Unfortunately this wasn’t the book for me. As a social worker, I have always looked at the power of thoughts, words, actions and relationships in daily life as well as in difficult times. One thing I didn’t consider much was the power of prayer, so that was a good lesson for me. The book was pretty basic stuff but I would feel very confident recommending it to others who don’t have a background in counseling or social work, as I do.
It definitely was good information, presented well, with great opportunity for insight and reflection.
