Blooming into Mindfulness: How the Universe Used a Garden, Cancer, and Carpools to Teach Me that Calm Is the New Happy by Martha Brettschneider Review
In a world that pushes us to always look for the next best thing, BLOOMING INTO MINDFULNESS shows you how to break the cycle of discontent and take control of your own happiness. Narrated with humor and raw honesty, Martha Brettschneider shares her transformation from ego-centered screaming mommy to a meditation-touting creative, finally at peace with the world.
Inspirational, motivational, and sprinkled with practical tips to silence our internal bully (the first step: recognizing that not all of our thoughts are to be trusted!), BLOOMING INTO MINDFULNESS is a must-read for anyone in search of an extra dose of internal peace.
If you're looking for strategies to reduce suffering in yourself and others, boost positive energy in your life, and not only unveil but also embrace your purpose, this book is for you.
You can purchase this book on Amazon.
I recevied a complimentary copy.
Martha Brettschneider is a writer, blogger, and award-winning photographer with a passion for inspiring mindfulness, the practice of finding beauty in the present moment.

She lives in northern Virginia with her husband, two sons, and a rascally golden retriever puppy who takes great pleasure in eating her garden. Visit her at www.marthabrettschneider.com.
Cassandra's review- This author has power behind her words and chapters of strength, build this book. There is a huge mix of emotions filling the pages and I really enjoyed being a part of the author's world. As I have dealt personally with cancer more than once and felt some of the same moments, I felt more connected with diffrent parts of the book. In the end this is a great read for anyone who needs a little pick me up and a lot of faith boosting because of the truth and wholesome sharing involved.
