Focused by Noelle Pikus Pace Blog Tour & Review
I was taken by surprise by how much I ended up loving this book! Not only does Pikus Pace tell her incredible journey towards an Olympic medal, but she helps the reader understand that in life it isn't about what circumstances you are given but how you choose to react to what life hands out. Focused is about not only about concentrating on your goals in life, but about being positive and standing up for who you are and what you believe in, no matter the situation. Pikus Pace fills her book with encouragement, personal stories and uplifting quotes and poems that have helped her throughout her journey. I found myself feeling encouraged and I came away with a feeling that I can do whatever I put my mind to if I am focused and work hard towards that goal. I also came away with a sense that I need to be the one reaching out to others and making a difference, not waiting for someone to reach out to me. I can't say enough about how this book filled me up with positive feelings and an "I can do this" attitude! Bravo to Pikus Pace for not only an inspiring book but for living an inspiring life and sharing it with others!
