I’ve Been Thinking… Reflections, Prayers, and Meditations for a Meaningful Life.
A book of reflections for those seeking wisdom, guidance, encouragement, and inspiration on the road to a meaningful life
As a prominent woman juggling many roles, Maria Shriver knows just how surprising, unpredictable, and stressful everyday life can be.
In this moving and powerful book, she shares inspiring quotes, prayers, and reflections designed to get readers thinking, get them feeling, get them laughing, and help them in their journey to what she calls The Open Field--a place of acceptance, purpose, and passion--a place of joy.
I’VE BEEN THINKING… is ideal for people at any point in their lives—everyone from high-powered executives to full-time caregivers, single, married, divorced, and otherwise. Whether you feel like you’ve got it all together or it’s all falling apart, whether you’re taking stock of your life or simply looking to recharge, this slender, accessible, motivating book is for anyone who needs a reminder that we’re all in this together. It’s the kind of book you will turn to again and again for guidance and encouragement, one that provides the “Me, too!” feeling we get when talking to a close friend. The result is a perfect gift for people wanting to renew their purpose and move forward with hope and grace.
I’VE BEEN THINKING… tackles big issues like faith and family and finding your path; it stresses the importance of being present, hitting pause, saying thank you, listening, and telling your story. Shriver shares tales from her own life, including the guidance her mother gave her, how it felt to send her youngest off to college, and what she has learned about handling the curveballs that life throws your way.
