Finding My Way - Karen Honnor
Karen moves from moments of angst to zen in her account of personal discovery - written with humour and searing honesty, as she invites us to join her finding her way through motherhood, midlife and menopause. Her inspiring commentary on life as a middle-aged woman in the 21st century, has a reflective writing style that involves the reader and is a no holds barred look at modern life. Writer and blogger who bakes and loves a stage, Karen has always loved a hat and here she wears many - wife, mother and career woman. Karen uses her writing to explore the difficulties inherent in juggling her many roles and is bold enough to speak out about her confidence issues and mental health. She may not have all the answers yet but is looking at the path ahead with a determination to succeed and a little more sass in her step.
There was a lot for me to relate to in this book. I took my time to read it because it made me think. The brave honesty of the author touched me and made me reflect a little. There is a danger in life that we live on automatic pilot, sometimes we need to stop, look around and see where we go from here. Karen Honnor has taken big steps which from my perspective are paying off. This book will connect with a lot of people who will sit and nod just like me. Bravo Karen.
