I've Been Thinking . . .Reflections, Prayers, and Meditations for a Meaningful Life Reviews
If I say I didn’t enjoy listening to this audiobook - was bored and critical - does that make me a negative person? I guess it’s the chance I’m willing to take.
94% of the reviews on Amazon are 5 stars. I’m not one of them.
This was an Audiobook library freebie. I had no idea what I was getting into. Perhaps as a physical book - ‘without’ feeling knocked down and lectured to - I might have at least appreciated the quotes in the book.
I understand it’s a book about Maria Shriver sharing what she’ ...more
This is really a collection of articles that Maria Shriver has published in her weekly (?) newspaper column. They cover all sorts of thoughts, from belief in God to politics, from family to personal growth. Although I believe this book was written from a place of caring and consideration, I kept thinking that Shriver is actually quite removed from the "regular folk." She grew up in a wealthy and famous family, and she moved into a public and political marriage. I appreciate the fact that she's n ...more

Maria is one of those go to authors for inspiration, insight and clear minded thinking. She writes with complete honesty and from her soul. This book is one I will read over and over again when I am looking for reminders for how to stay on the path of moving forward with courage, love and positivity.
Beautiful, calming, inspiring. I have never met this woman but feel I know her as a friend through her writings.
Great read. I enjoy this book it is very relaxing and soothing to the heart. When I am down there is a answer to what ever is bothering me in this book.❤ I am so thankful that I won this book!❤
Lodged somewhat blandly, a few pearls of wisdom can be pried out with a highlighter. It doesn’t feel like there’s anything new here, Maria’s writing feels plain, but soothing to read nonetheless. That said, I don’t think the book was meant to be inhaled in two days like I did. Perhaps small daily doses is the key here. The title does include the words “Refections, Prayers, and Meditations”, so perhaps my hasty pace made the writing style seem a bit stale.
There’s a couple great reminders for anyo ...more
