Book Review of Gala Darling Radical Self Love
NON-FICTION

Radical Self Love by Gala Darling

Have you ever dreamed of a life full of laughter, love and sequins… but felt totally clueless about how to make it happen? You’re not alone. Bestselling author and speaker Gala Darling spent years in soul-sucking jobs, battling with depression and an eating disorder. Her life was filled with chaos and disaster – simply because she didn’t know how to create the life she dreamed of. In Radical Self Love, Gala recounts how she turned her life around from self-destruction to self-love, and shows how you can do the same.

There is something pretty magical about this book.

Something that makes it a little different from many other books on self development and self love that I’ve read before.

This one DEFINITELY has something extra sparkly.

A self development book for Unicorn lovers and fans of bright pink lipstick.

It sounds a bit fluffy doesn’t it? But it’s not.

Radical Self Love is split into 3 parts – ‘Loving Yourself’, ‘Loving Others’ and ‘Daily Magic’. Gala Darling teaches you how to look at life more inwardly, making decisions based on what YOU want out of life and what YOU deserve. We all need a book like this on our shelves. We all need more awareness of how important it is to truly love yourself and look after yourself. It will completely transform your life once it becomes part of your every day!

I especially loved the chapters on love and friendship.

There was a lot here that I think we all push aside and that really got me thinking. The friends we have because of social media – both the strong friendships and those that we should have let go of long ago, the friendship killers like jealousy and not returning texts and emails…and Gala teaches us there’s no time for those who no longer serve us and cheerlead us on!

My favourite chapter was Chapter 5. It includes your 101 guide to Manifesting. And I love manifesting.

Gala Darling guides you to manifest your dream life alongside some homework to keep you focused once the pages of the book are finished.

If you’re a fan of Lisa Lister or Gabby Bernstein, you need some Gala Darling in your life! You’ll get so much more than just words. You’ll get feelings, thoughts and definitely some magic!!!
