SUGAR COATIN’ IS FOR CANDY & PACIFYING IS FOR KIDS.
By Nonnie Jules
Ever feel so down, you don’t think you can pull yourself up by the boot straps? Or get so angry at someone, but back down from confrontation, because that person might be A. hurt you or B. have so strong a personality, you’re humiliated and can’t defend yourself?
“Be who you are and say what you feel because those who mind don’t matter and those who matter don’t mind.” A quote from Dr. Suess.
And so begins Nonnie Jules’ gem of a book; a collection of inspirational blog posts intended to education, inspire, persuade and entertain us on how to stand up for ourselves and others.
Nonnie Jules has taken these jewels to a new level and instructs us to be strong in our beliefs and not be afraid to say what we mean and mean what we say.” That’s a hard achievement for any of us.
This simple but elegant collection gives us insight into the world of Jules writings, meanderings and thoughts as she instructs, but more than that, never belittles, but encourages and entertains.
This book is well-written and keeps you interested and engrossed from the beginning to the end. We can float back into our own lives and discover the times we were beaten down, humiliated, lost and didn’t know where to go.
The Table of Contents breaks down to:
“I’M JUST ME”
“WE WERE PUT HERE TO GROW”
“WE ALL BLEED RED, DON’T WE?”
“WHY I WANT TO BE AN AUTHOR”
“HOW TO BECOME A GREAT SUPPORTER ON AND OFF SOCIAL MEDIA...NAMELY TWITTER.”
“YOU’RE GONNA HEAR ME ROAR”
“YOU MADE ME CRY”
“IF YOU DON’T TOOT YOUR OWN HORN, WHO WILL?”
Maybe Nonnie Jules does, because her book shows us she believes in us.
This is a book you might want to keep by your bed stand. I gave this book five stars, because I loved it, I will keep it handy, and it was well written.
