Wake Up Your Life
Reviewed By: Melinda Cianos
Roper had choices when dealing with her relationship pain: to label herself “victim” and wile away her days in self-pity, embrace the anger invading her spirit until bitterness set in, or to take a fresh look at herself to name the low self-esteem that kept her repeating the same mistakes. She chose the latter.
In Wake Up You Life, Roper endeavors to inspire women to take responsibility for the less-than-desirable situations that repeatedly plague them, and to employ forgiveness and a optimistic outlook to make the most of their lives. One of the most notable features of this book are the “Smart Woman Quotes” that are dispersed throughout. I especially like the creative quip by Eleanor Roosevelt, ” Women are like tea bags. You don’t know how strong they are until they get in some hot water.” Amen.
