Dream Big

Audiobook: “Dream Big: Know What You Want, Why You Want It, and What You’re Going to Do About It,” Bob Goff, Nelson Books, 2020

Audiobook Review by Mary Mikawoz

Book and audiobook available: July 23, 2020

It has been a long time since I have listened to an audiobook as I usually read paper copies or digital books. I used to frequently and regularly listen to Compact Discs when I was driving to work and back. I had quite the trek and so I was trying to use my time more efficiently and effectively.

The book by Bob Goff is a faith-based book about Jesus and God. Although it is religious, it is spiritual in thought. It is about your relationship to God and how you manifest/transform it in real life.

Bob Goff has had an interesting life from being lawyer to an advocate for children’s safety and well-being. He tells an interesting story of trying to save a 11 year old girl from sex slavery twice in India and the consequences of his good intent.

He has lived an interesting life and seems to follow through on his own advice with getting his pilot’s license, a motorcycle license after he drove the bike across North America and also starting and rebuilding for the second time a lodge in Canada after it burnt down. He has a loving wife and family.

I think the advice he gives is a combination between common sense and prudent advice. This book is especially suited towards younger people especially those in their 20s and 30s who are starting out in life and struggling. It may even apply to 40s, 50s and beyond if people are facing mid-life challenges and are looking for inspiration.

I found it to be a thoughtful book with some very interesting stories told by Bob Goff.

I give this book a 4 out of 5 based on the information written in a friendly, non-judgemental way. Aside from the audio book, it is available as a digital book and paperback as well.

Beauty of My Eye

When I see peonies, I think of my mother. There is an old coloured photograph of my mother in a pink, silky organza layered type of dress. She looks absolutely stunning and so beautiful. Along with her, were her children, us kids, playing beside her and she is kneeling near the fence where there are beautiful, pink peonies framing her body. 

I love this image that I took in my own garden because it highlights the pink peony and is surrounded by bright, yellow flowers and green leaves which to me, is like my mother along with her children. She is the “Beauty of My Eye.” 

Now that I think of it, I wonder if my father created that stunning dress for my mother as he was a custom tailor and made beautifully tailored clothes for all of us. Good memories. 

This is for you Mom and Dad!
