Heart-Dreamer: Stepping into Life, Love, Creativity and Dreams - No Matter What by Cheryl Melody Baskin is a wonderfully inspiring and motivating way to think with your heart instead of your head, which will automatically have you pursuing your dreams or returning to the lost dreams you've left behind. We're born creative creatures, but sometimes life, goals, work, and other obligations get in the way of building our dreams. Baskin shows us how to return to our first loves - our dreams - to achieve happiness and success. Yes, we all face challenges, and it seems that fulfilling our dreams might be a fruitless venture. But with determination and a plan (and this book, of course) you can head in a positive direction toward healing and personal satisfaction.
Baskin has crafted the perfect guide for those who have lost a dream, and I like her idea that those who think they have no dream can find one if they allow themselves to look inside and are open to it. The author writes with a concise, personal style that is highly enjoyable and relatable. The life advice within these pages can help you attain self-awareness, better health, self-forgiveness, and a solid foundation for moving forward. You'll find inspirational quotes like "A life without love is like a tree without blossoms or fruit," and other thought-provoking prompts to get you thinking about your own needs, goals, and dreams. I especially like the author's concept of finding your inner child or going back to the joys and dreams you had as a child and using them in your dream journey. The cultural references are entertaining and inspiring as well. This book would be great for anyone in a slump or anyone just starting out in life and wondering how to choose the right path. If that is you, pick up Heart-Dreamer: Stepping into Life, Love, Creativity and Dreams - No Matter What by Cheryl Melody Baskin.
