Early in my youth, I knew that I wanted to attend Spelman College, the famed African American women’s institution in Atlanta. The women I’d read about there reminded me a lot of the woman I admired all my life, my mother. They had a powerful presence about them and were extremely intelligent. Though she was a single mother, my mother made sure I was able to attend this esteemed institution. She left her entire world in Chicago (including family and friends), to start a new life with me in Atlanta. I mean, my mother was my biggest cheerleader.
In order for me to live the best, she made weighty sacrifices—no matter how major they may have been—so much so that she depleted her entire retirement plan so that I could not only go to Spelman, but graduate. Losing her in recent years was like losing the air you breathe. My once vibrant world felt dark and depleted. For months, all I could do was cry my sadness away. It was too painful to realize she was no longer just a phone call away. My mother was truly my favorite girl and best friend. People who I didn’t even know, knew who I was and my story because she was that proud of me. The unconditional love she showered upon me daily is what keeps me going to this very moment.
Disclaimer: I received a complimentary copy of The Wynning Way by Maisha S. Wynn in exchange for an honest review.
I don’t think I can call reading The Wynning Way simply reading, this was studying and self-introspection. Going through this one time is definitely not going to be enough.
I’ve been struggling with organization and over-commitment to my blog and lack of attention to God, myself and my family. And then Ms. Wynn asks the question, “Am I completely happy with me?” I didn’t like the answer I had to give myself. The Wynning Way is helping me to learn more about myself and figure out the direction my life needs to take from here.
It doesn’t seem fair to call this a book review, The Wynning Way by Maisha S. Wynn has given me tools to take a look and review myself!
I give The Wynning Way five wynning cups of Room With Books coffee and recommend you pick up a copy and work toward a winning lifestyle yourself!
