6 Self-Empowering Books You Need to Read in 2024
From the publisher: A beautifully designed book full of inspiring quotes and tried-and-tested wisdom on using positivity to create a life you love. How can you learn to truly love yourself? How can you transform negative emotions into positive ones? Is it possible to find lasting happiness? Vex will show you that when you change the way you think, feel, speak and act, you begin to change the world.
From the publisher: Part memoir and part guide, Elle shares stirring stories from her own remarkable journey from self-doubt to self-love. Filled with Elle’s signature candor and warmth, After the Rain is a soulful guide to help you embrace all the beauty, love, and opportunity life has to offer. It includes empowering affirmations and meditations to practice in your own life.
From the publisher: Are you still playing a role you learned in childhood to please others, such as the Good Girl/Boy, the Overachiever, or the Helper? Though these kinds of roles may have gained us attention and affection, they prohibited us from becoming our true selves. The Joy of Saying No will help you identify your people-pleasing style and habits. Read my review here.
From the publisher: You deserve to wholeheartedly love yourself and your life. You deserve to break free from your past and the hurt it has held you in for too long. You deserve to find whole healing and full freedom from any darkness that tries to take your light. You deserve to finally find the peace your soul has been searching for. More than anything I just hope you know that you deserve to be here, now. The world would never be the same without you.
From the publisher: Healing is not a one-time event. It can begin with a one-time event — typically some form of sudden loss that disrupts our projection of what the future might be. However, the true work of healing is allowing that disruption to wake us from a deep state of unconsciousness, to release the personas we adapted into and begin consciously piecing together the full truth of who we were meant to be.

From the publisher: For centuries, the mountain has been used as a metaphor for the big challenges we face, especially ones that seem impossible to overcome. To scale our mountains, we actually have to do the deep internal work of excavating trauma, building resilience, and adjusting how we show up for the climb. In the end, it is not the mountain we master, but ourselves. Read my review here.
Let’s make 2024 a year of prioritizing and celebrating self-love and the power it holds. Whether through reading inspiring self-empowering books, positive affirmations, or taking a moment to recognize our strengths and achievements, let’s continue to prioritize ourselves and recognize all the wonderful qualities that make us unique.
