Book Review: Grace, Not Perfection


Good morning! I hope you’re having a great start to your day so far. I got myself an early start by waking up earlier than usual to relax and journal and have a cup of coffee. It’s always nice to do that! 

Recently, I just finished a book by Emily Ley and I really enjoyed it. I wanted to let you all know my thoughts on Grace, Not Perfection. It is an easy read and super uplifting, how to carry yourself with grace at all times and how she began her business. 

One of the things I really enjoyed was how she incorporated journaling into her book. In some chapters, she would let you write down your thoughts that went along with what was being learned and taught. For example, “write down five things that are bothering you at the moment and what you can do to change that.” That is just one example I can think of that’s similar to one in the book. 

Having an entrepreneurship mind as in wanting to start my own business hopefully sooner than later, I really enjoyed how she wrote about her career and how she started. One aspect she speaks about is failure and how nothing is perfect. There’s no magical overnight success and it takes a lot of hard work. Emily mentioned how there were nights where she lacked sleep and had to work all night on her business while going to her day job. 

I feel this book is great for anyone at any age. It’s never too late or early to learn about grace, how to uphold yourself, business tactics and so much more. 

Right now, one of my friends actually borrowed the book since I couldn’t stop talking about how good it was. I hope she enjoys it as much as I did. I literally can’t stop buying books but I guess that’s the least of my problems! Next up, I have a few on my list including Chip and Joanna Gaines, Always a Bridesmaid and Bobby Bowden’s book. 

Well I’m off to work for the day. Stay tuned for more fun posts coming to the blog! xx

P.S. How great is her actual book?! Like I think it is so cute and bright to have even as a coffee table book!
