Book Review: Perfectly Imperfect
Perfectly Imperfect was written by Connie Howell and published by Deep Read Press in 2022. You can purchase it on Amazon/Kindle and you can visit the author on Amazon and on social media.
Connie Howell touches on all of the essentials of human growth, imperfections and the complete essence of what it means to be human.
Perfectly Imperfect may have once been categorized as a "self-help book" but it is so much more than that. The author injects the themes of a memoir into this very interesting and thought-provoking book about the lessons of life and what we should take away from our existence here on our continued earthly journey. She uses troubling examples of her own life and her growth through the years to reach out to us and to explain that we don't have to strive to be perfect- we can be loved just the way we are. The concepts are easy to understand, and following each chapter there are questions that you can ask yourself, that will help you in your efforts to understand the person that you really are- and to accept the person that you are. The author reveals some disturbing life altering situations that she went through that so many of us can relate to, and this helps us to connect with her and to learn how to move on from it all. When I picked up this book and began to read it, I realized that the title doesn't really do justice to explaining the content because there is so much more here that the author delves into. Without mentioning the specifics, Connie Howell touches on all of the essentials of human growth, imperfections and the complete essence of what it means to be human. One of my favorite quotes in the book is this: "Remember we are not humans having a spiritual experience we are spiritual beings having a human experience." I have learned that a good book, whether it be fiction or non-fiction, will cause you to think about the content long after the last page is read. This is one of those books. This is a must read! I give Perfectly Imperfect 5 out of 5 stars.
