Promises to Myself

(Gift for Women)

By Mary Anne Radmacher

Beautiful Poems About Life

The important promises are the ones we make to ourselves. So begins artist and writer Mary Anne Radmacher's beautiful ode to promises—those we make, those we keep, those we renew, those we live up to. In this motivational book, Radmacher inspires us to discover the promises that make life sweet. To count our promises and our blessings. To delve into our hearts to discover the promises of our life's purpose.

It's not about what was—it's about what may be. Promises to Myself is one big self-love poem for the heart, soul, and mind. This beautiful rendition of handlettered, visual poetry is a book to keep near at hand and return to often.

Listen to the music of love and respect. Reflecting on the promises of your everyday life will deepen your satisfaction and heighten your clarity. In this inspirational poetry with a purpose, you will find illustrated thoughts on:

  • Promises of Friendship, Family, and Love
  • Promises of Possibility
  • Promises to the World

Readers of visual poetry and inspirational poems about life like Milk and Honey and The Sun and Her Flowers by Rupi Kaur; 2Fish; and Gmorning, Gnight! will be inspired by Mary Anne Radmacher's Promises to Myself.

The key to living an inspired life is simple: accept your past/ release your expectations/ embrace your choices.

Simply an Inspired Life teaches readers to distinguish between events and our feelings about them, to choose thoughtfully, and never blame ourselves or anyone else. Filled with inspiring quotes wisdom from the ages and all traditions, personal stories, and exercises, Simply an Inspired Life is based on eight guiding principles: honor, forgiveness, gratitude, choice, vision, action, celebration, and unity with all creation.

Mary Anne Radmacher has a way of inviting those who hear or read her words to change their lives, and in Live Boldly, she continues on that engaging path. In the book, she identifies an assortment of qualities for our life's journey and defines each as it relates to laughing loudly, loving truly, playing often, working smart, and sharing your heart. Each definition is followed by a quote, a poem, or an aphorism that explores the quality. Stories culled from Mary Anne's own life and teaching practice are followed by an invitation to readers to listen more closely to their lives, to give themselves what they need and to step back into their daily lives knowing they can choose in that moment, to live boldly by their own definition. Whether readers need or want justice or gratitude, endurance or celebration, comfort or challenge, the process is the same -- read and listen to the word, enter into its meaning in the lives of others and bring that meaning to your own life. Other qualities include generosity, compassion, leadership -- 34 in all
