Reviews on Amazon:
Judith Pratt-Jeffries takes you on her journey to find the dream life she always wanted to live in the Dominican Republic. She shows you how you can find your dream life, too. The theme of “Permission Granted” vs. following the rules and expectations of others is woven throughout her book. She uses an early example in her life where she wish she would have asked permission to have an ice cream cone instead of not appearing greedy (rules/expectations). As well as walking you through how to find your dream life, she provides a list of resources to aid you in your discovery. And now with her print book, she also includes a companion workbook to help you figure out your own new path.
I believe life is to be lived fully which translates into a life that is successful to the individual living it. But so many of us flounder in this pursuit – me including. I would have given anything to have been able to tap into this wonderful, thought provoking, insightful, courageous, persevering process described and outlined so masterfully in this book, “Permission Granted”. Congrats to you Judith. This book is not only inspirational but is a valuable “how to” on navigating your own successful life journey. Would highly recommend it to all I come I contact with.
Beautifully written, with a very uplifting message.
There are two themes that stood out for me.
1- The idea that your life is in two layers. The one you ‘do’ daily based on what society expects from you and the other your natural/instinctive way of being. The instinctive way of being is who you were born to be. It was there when you were a child. Your natural personality, the ways you found joy. It gets lost because of the rules that society imposes. But it still shows up and if you pay attention you can have it in your life now.
2- The other thing that I loved about this book was the questions that it asked. The author asked it of herself but it is great questions to ask yourself. They are: Is this the life I want? Does this memory tell me something about my true self?
Short, beautiful and impactful book!
This book is one of the best that I have read in a very long time. I could not put it down until I finished it and it reminded me of myself and what I should have done a long time ago. I take my hat off to Judith Pratt Jeffries for sharing everything that she has shared in this book from the time that she was a little girl to the time of being an adult and living her life the way she felt was the right way for her. May everyone have the same Guts to do as she did and to be able to share it with the world. She is really a very very special lady. I recommend this book to everyone that is out there who is living their life for other people rather than for them self. Maybe if they would read her book they would realize they could be happy as she has become.
