5 Books I Enjoyed in 2010: Thelma Horton

Posted on December 30, 2010


I loved reading as a child.  I would hide a Nancy Drew or a Jack London in my pillow case and after my Mom or Dad switched off the light, I performed the same ritual most nights – “Pull cover over head, find flash light, pull out book, get comfortable, start reading, satisfy my thirst for adventure, fall asleep in the middle of it as I imagined being a part of the cast of characters.”

Somewhere along the way, maybe when I discovered boys, I put the books down.  Now that I know what “boys” are all about, (not really), I have rediscovered my passion for reading.  I really like the notion of curling up in my favorite chair or stacking the pillows just right in the bed and losing myself between the pages of a good book.  I still have a thirst for adventure and knowledge; however, it’s coming from very a different place. I get to live it not imagine it. My personal commitment is to create a meaningful life from my inborn passions, from the conversation of being fully engaged in living.


The Science of Getting Rich by Wallace D. Wattles

In the pages of Wallace D. Wattles book The Science of Getting Rich I really began to understand that I am the master of my universe as The Science of Getting Rich - Revieweverything begins with a thought.  I accepted that being “rich” truly is a science and the path is open to everyone.  As I embraced the principles presented by Wattles, I came to understand that my life is generated by my thoughts and the relationship between my mind, body and spirit.  I became aware of my thoughts and began to practice the laws presented in the book.  I am experiencing a greater level of abundance and “richness” in my life.


Think and Grow Rich by Napoleon Hill

Think and Grow Rich - RecommendedI read a couple of reviews of Napoleon Hill’s Think and Grow Rich that suggested the book should be used as a life text book, a guide to clearly define my vision, my purpose and to create a success model to implement both my personal and business plan into action.  Think and Grow Rich has been the framework for an amazing journey of self-discovery and actualization.


Calling in the One by Kathleen Woodward Thomas

Having my thoughts flowing in a positive manner, with a vision and a plan, motivated me to read, Calling in the One by Katherine WoodwardCalling in the One Thomas which was a perfect guide for me to breakthrough issues that hindered me from having deep meaningful relationships.  Now, I am overflowing with love, can receive love, and am available to be in an intimate relationship.  Amazing!

The Shack by William P. Young allowed me to have a spiritual adventure that is worth repeating.

I am fully engaged in life, how about you?
