Book of the Week: Light is the New Black: A Guide to Answering Your Soul’s Callings and Working Your Light

“No one has ever had the complete, perfect plan. There is no end destination. There is no right or wrong way to do it and you do NOT need permission from anyone else. Don’t put so much pressure on yourself. Forget about the outcome, the plan, and just start now by following one thing that fills you up, that gets you out of bed and you are enthusiastic about. And then reach for another. It doesn’t have to make sense – the best things never do.

I loved this book. The whole thing just made me feel good. It’s not for everyone and would be described as “woo woo” by many, but if you’re into the fun side of spirituality and aren’t looking for anything too deep, I’d recommend this gorgeous book.
Light is the New Black is for anyone in need of some help reconnecting to themselves and rediscovering what it is that lights them up. Packed with uplifting and awakening words, this is a comfort book, written as a sort of metaphorical big hug, as well as an empowering call to action.
Campbell shares her story, which I found immensely reassuring, as she had the same old career confusion I am currently experiencing, and the same pattern of thoughts.
There are countless insightful exercises throughout the book, from “Write a letter from your 88 year old self to your current self. What advice do they have? What are they most proud of? What do they regret?” and “What are you called to do that scares you?”.
There’s plenty of list making, which suited me perfectly: “What lights you up? What do you love doing that makes you feel joyful, inspired, enthusiastic and light?”

“Don’t feel like you can only do one thing. Give your multi-dimensional soul what it craves. Do them all. Don’t do it for a reason or an end goal, do it because you love doing it. Follow it without knowing where it will lead.”
