There have been so many major shifts & changes in the world so far in 2020 & I really hope that we can all reflect upon them & help change the world for the better.
"We are in this together. We will get through this together." – Beth Kempton
Behind the scenes I've been listening, educating myself & most importantly reading & listening & there really has been no better time to read & listen to We Are in This Together: Finding hope and opportunity in the depths of adversity than right now. The author, Beth Kempton, is my lovely friend, colleague & business partner for Make it in Design, but despite that, this wonderful, impactful, insightful book is a must-have in your library either way. Why? Because Beth knows how to softly question, inspire & give you the space to think all while soaking in her beautiful words.
"Exhale. It’s a good place to start in a crisis." – Beth Kempton
My experience of this stunning audio book was through a relaxing, long walk & absolutely the way I would recommend listening to it. I've always been someone who has connected deeply with nature, as it's where I draw a lot of my creative inspiration from & hearing Beth's words only made the connection that much more meaningful. This book is a calming balm during a time when things have been so full of change & uncertainness.
"May we find stillness in silence, and stillness in flow." – Beth Kempton
There really is no more business as usual, at least for me, & through the struggle of homeschooling & juggling two businesses this book has really been such a light on the days that have felt a little more dark & stressful.
A little out shout out also goes to Beth for her help while I’ve recently been in the midst of writing my own book. I suffer from imposter syndrome (which is crazy as I know my topic better than I know myself) & I have a constant feeling of being overwhelmed. She has offered guidance, support & nudged me in a very proactive yet gentle way. I have also just completed her Book Proposal Masterclass which is beyond epic & I just can't recommend it enough.
We Are in This Together: Finding hope and opportunity in the depths of adversity is available here. Beth also has an amazing new writing class Words Heal: Writing in times of crisis open for registration now.
I'll leave you with some final beautiful words from We Are in This Together:
