A Reminder to My Twenty-Three-Year-Old Self: A Book of Quotes, Thoughts on Life, and Personal Wisdom
Hardcover, 172 Pages
Prints in 3-5 business days
David Damian Figueroa grew up listening to his mother’s dichos, Mexican folk sayings, as well as her favorite American quotes. They were her way of teaching him what mattered, and they extolled the value of hard work and common sense. Over the years, he developed his own habit of writing down quick thoughts and favorite sayings. In this volume of quotes, thoughts on life, and personal wisdom, he pays tribute to his mother’s memory and passes on his own dose of guidance. Sayings include: • A dream is achieved with vision, faith, and one decisive action at a time. • Honoring a person’s point of view, respecting his or her beliefs, acknowledging hard work, and recognizing our own mistakes are acts of love. • Our inaction can also be an action. Staying silent when we should have said something, doing nothing when our participation might have made a difference, and not helping when we could have helped are all action items. —Bel Hernandez,...

Aug 2, 2019I love this book with my cafecito or tea. It's a book with inspirational quotes, thought provoking statements and questions that hold you to a moment of self-reflection and introspection. I grab this book and take in some "Me Time." It's like sunshine to my morning. "There's nothing more valuable than peace" followed by "What will I do to ensure I am at peace" page 30 & 31, was my moment of reflection for the day. Thank you David for such a beautiful piece of thought inspiring richness.
Jul 30, 2019This book already had me in tears at the Introduction page!! (I’m serious!!) The title of the book summarized it for all of us as a reader, on how a Mother’s stern voice and unconditional love can certainly impact and mold a person’s life forever; like it did for David. What an invaluable gift, for your loving mother to have instilled this incredible and powerful words of wisdom at such a prime and young age; and here you are in your adult life, (3 decades later!) keeping your beautiful mother's voice ALIVE and sharing her wisdom and legacy with the world for everyone to enjoy! It’s now up to each and every one of us to apply and put these life lesson “dichos” to use! I hope to leave a LEGACY of LOVE for my 16 year old growing son as well.
Jul 26, 2019The excitement about this long anticipated publication was indeed worthy of it’s content. David Damian Figueroa has created something for the masses! I would characterize this book not only as well-written, but intensely thought provoking! With each quote, comes the wit and wisdom only time and life experience can bring. The thoughtfully included notes pages offer an opportunity for the reader to reflect, and compose written thoughts which if revisited, could be a reminder of perspectives. I HIGHLY recommend “Reminder To My Twenty-Three-Year-Old Self” as not only a self help tool but, a great resource for daily affirmation. Thank you David Damian for this wonderful gift!!
Jun 28, 2019This is such an inspiring book, really enjoy it and makes me laugh, cry, but most of all think!! I look forward to reading more of this author's work for years to come.
