of the most powerful steps you can take towards creating the life of
your dreams is to take total ownership of everything that manifests
within it. Your successes, failures, the way others treat you, your
health, your happiness, etc. This is called taking personal
This being said: What are your core beliefs? What do you want out of life? What are you doing to make your dreams come true? What can/will you do to manifest your new reality? When your manifestation comes into being, what in your life will change? When do you want this? How will you know when you have what you want? So, then, when will you take action?
You mayn't know that I'm on Shelfari, as Auntie Nanuuq and I am an Administrator of two different groups:
Book Chat & Historical Mysteries. Both groups are "open" groups and you'll need no invitation to join.
In Book Chat: https://www.facebook.com/events/211987512286509/ we read most everything and anything. We have no limitations and everyone** is welcome. We have several ongoing threads: the monthly What We Are Reading, Hello My Name Is, and What Makes You Happy.
the current time (June & July) we have a challenge: TBR (To Be
Read). We are taking one book from several members TBR or Wish List and
we are reading & rating them. Some of the more ambitious members
(such as myself) are adding reviews as well. There will be prizes at the
end of the challenge.
In April & May we had a "Scavenger Hunt": this was much more
grueling, we had a long list of words (each w/ varying amount of points)
and cover images to locate in the books we were reading. At the end
there were also prizes.
Also in May we had a Historical Mystery
challenge: the person reading, rating, & reviewing the most
Historical Mysteries won a historical mystery.
have similar threads to those in Book Chat and a "Buddy Read" where we
take turns picking an author or Historical Mystery series and then read,
rate & review those books as well. We are currently reading the
Benjamin January series & Abigail Adams series by Barbara
We just finished an Agatha Christie challenge:
the winner received a copy of one of Christie's favorite books, "Crooked
House", the 2nd & 3rd place runner ups won handmade bookmarks.
goal in both groups it to promote the enjoyment of reading, sharing
what we've read, and make new acquaintances & friends.
In both groups we welcome Authors who are actively taking a part in the
group. If you are there merely to promote your book, don't bother to
join, we consider joining us for the sole purpose of promoting yourself
& your book as "Spam", and we take steps to remove offenders from
So, please drop by, peruse our groups, and feel free to join us!
