GET YOUR SHIT TOGETHER | YES, I READ A BOOK & I’M ABOUT TO RECOMMEND IT TO YOU


I don't write book reviews/recommendations that often. Why? Because I have hardly enough time to you know, concentrate on important things in life like self-care and such things, so I haven't read a book in a while. Though, Santa (my husband) brought me a gift underneath my Christmas tree that enlightened my whole world. And it made me read a book at one sitting.

GET YOUR SHIT TOGETHER
"How to stop worrying about what you should do so you can finish what you need to do and start doing what you want to do."

Get Your Shit Together is a "self-help" book written by an author called Sarah Knight. Honestly, if there's a blogger or anyone who doesn't know who she is and what she has written, are you even a blogger? Just kidding. She has also written a little book called "The Life-Changing Magic of Not Giving a Fuck" and it has also been one of my favourites for a while.

So, if you know me at all you know that I think almost 100% of self-help books are complete bullshit. That's just my own opinion (ah what a cliché), but there it is, I've said it out loud. When it comes to Sarah's books she lays it all out there and doesn't hold her words back. And straightforward, that's what I love. Not a book that'll hold you in silky gloves but a book that actually makes you think what the fuck is wrong with your life. You see where I'm going with this? This is exactly one of those books that'll make you think all the things that are wrong with your life & then it builds up the motivation to start fixing those things that you think are wrong with your life.

When I read this book I was at the point where I really needed to get my shit together (pun intended), so I guess that's one of the reasons I fell head over heels for this one.


Get Your Shit Together is the first book that has left me to feel enlightened.
And trust me, this is coming from a person who read the Bible two times and didn't get anything life-changing out of it. (I don't want to be rude, but honestly.)

The book tells you who needs to get their shit together, how to get your shit together from the small life changes to the big ones. So it'll work out for you no matter where you want to get in life. No matter what kind of goals you have.

For me, this book opened my eyes. It made me question my life at the moment and do I want it to be like this in the next few years. I made myself goals for 2018, for the next five years and for the next ten years. Then I made smaller goals to achieve them. Also, the book has got a perfect method to do your to-do lists in a way that it won't stress you out and I'm all in on to-do lists.

So if you haven't read this book yet & you really do want to get your shit together, go pick it up so you see how I'm feeling at the moment. 
Have you read this book?

  1. I haven't but now I really want to do it! Also the "The Art of not giving a Fuck" sounds pretty interesting and it has been on my "list of books to read" for almost a year. I guess it's time to read them ;)
    Thanks for the recommendation!

  2. I didn't hear before for this book, but I'll for sure read it. A few years back I have read a similar book from one Croatian author by the name F*ck you and I really like it, so I bet this one is at that level. Thank you for recommendation :D

  4. Honestly, I'd have to read this just for the title. I'm the same way, I have absolutely zero time for self care and I know that I'm slacking off all around. I'll definitely have to check out both of these books because I need them in my life!

  5. This probably is something I could read too! I'm not good with finding times for books though I would love reading them. But this kind of easy reading, motivating books could fit into my busy schedules or bus trips. :)

  7. The titles of both books made me laugh out loud. I'm a Kondo kind of gal, so I don't know exactly how this would make me feel? lol...but I'm intrigued and might have to pick it up just to see if it makes me think. Then again, I'm one of those who has read the Bible about a zillion times and got a ton out of it, so I'd say then my chances are pretty good. Ha! ;)

  14. This sounds like the perfect book for me! I'm always worrying about things and spend more time procrastinating than actually doing the things I have on my to do list. Thanks for the recommendation! :)x
