We all have a past that we try to forget. And our fear of letting go of it is hindering us from moving forward. In this book, the author underlines the importance of not letting lack of confidence and fear of the unknown stop us from living the life we want.

Growing up in a broken home with both of her parents being addicts, Jodi became used to things not working in her favor. She lost direction and sought validation from others instead of doing what made her happy. In this book, the author encouraged us to believe in ourselves and stay confident in all we do. If not, we would be sad, frustrated, and unhappy. Never limit yourself, and never settle for less. The author also advises us to always stay positive, build our self-confidence, and put God first in all we do.

I loved the fact that the author always made reference to the Bible. At the beginning of each chapter, she made sure to quote a verse from the Bible. She also added links to websites that she felt would be beneficial to us. I enjoyed the author’s conversational writing style a lot. It was quite easy to read and understand the message she was trying to pass across. The author shared bits of her life experiences with us, including her challenges as a single mom and how she was able to pull through. She also talked about how she had helped a lot of her clients. There are a lot of important lessons to learn in this book. For instance, the power of affirmation and also believing in ourselves.

There was nothing I disliked about this book. I enjoyed every bit of it till the end. I did not notice any errors in this book as it was exceptionally well-edited. Therefore, I rate Reclaim Your Life by Jodi Watkins 4 out of 4 stars.

After reading this book, I was able to let go of some of the things I had buried deep within. It made me realize the importance of letting go, and I am grateful for that. I recommend this book, especially to those who need encouragement in order to shun their negativity and self-doubt and step out of their comfort zones. This book is for people who are ready to make a positive change in their lives but need guidance on how to go about it.

I agree with everything the author pointed out. When you keep seeking validation from people you will never be happy. Instead, you will feel melancholic.

The author’s tone was conversational and that's what matter the most in any book. I love how it always made a reference to the Bible at every point. It validates the work of the author.

Not letting a lack of confidence and fear of the unknown stop us from living in the moment is a powerful message to pass. I love this book already.

Jodi sounds like a motivating character. What will I learn from her? She must have gone through a lot. Good review.
