Would I recommend it? Yes. If, like me, your head is spinning with indecision, at the very least you might feel a bit lighter. And, who knows, if you're mind is freed up, perhaps you might actually find an answer after all (Marisa Bate The Pool)
With plenty of encouraging exercises, this interactive journal is ideal for those who want to manage (or discover) their long-term goals. It's filled with beautiful illustrations by Meera Lee Patel, a self-taught artist from New York, and aims to help the reader gain a better understanding of who they are (Melisha Kaur, Best Self-Help Books Evening Standard)
Meera Lee Patel is a self-taught artist raised in America by the New Jersey shore, where she swam the bright waters and climbed cherry blossom trees until she grew old enough to draw them. Her illustrations are inspired by the magical mysteries of nature, the quiet stories that lace through everyday life, and the bold colors of her native India.
Meera lives and works in Brooklyn, New York. Visit her online at www.meeralee.com, or follow her work on Instagram @merelymeeralee.

We just got done looking at Goldie Hawn’s “10 Mindful Minutes: A Journal” and here I am back, BAM, with “Start Where You Are: A Journal for Self-Exploration” by Meera Lee Patel. Trust me, these two journals are totally different from one another, so you’re going to want to keep reading.
Patel’s journal comes from a unique, but familiar perspective. How often have you put change on hold because things weren’t where you thought they should be for you to make that change? I’ve done. Patel, the author, has done. Odds are good that you’ve done, or maybe you’re doing it now. “Start Where You Are” encourages you to stop looking, and waiting, for that other day, and to instead start where you are. Her journal asks probing, thought provoking questions to help you find out more about yourself: what you really love, your motivations, how see yourself and how you feel others perceive you, and more. However she does mix it up. Sometimes the journal will just ask a question for you to answer, but other times you’re drawing pictures, or filling in circles or other shapes, or coloring in a drawing.
Along with her journaling exercises, Patel includes inspiring quotes from a variety of sources. Since she’s an accomplished artist, with lines of stationary sold in boutiques, the quotes are presented in colorful, whimsical fonts, suitable for framing (if you’re willing to cut them out of the book).
It can be difficult to think about yourself and your desires, particularly if you think they’re unattainable. Artist and author Meera Lee Patel does her best to make the journey a painless and playful one.
Now on to the book itself - first off, the artwork is gorgeous. Some of the drawings (they're more like paintings) are absolutely frame-worthy. They appeal to both adult women and teens because they're somewhat whimsical while still giving off a modern feel. The colors are so vivid and bright, they almost jump out at you. The quotes are all very thought-provoking. And the prompt questions really got me thinking myself... so often in life, we forget to explore ourselves, to ask ourselves important questions. We get caught in the rat race, in our everyday hectic schedules and we lose ourselves. Even though I bought this journal for my teenage nieces, it's certainly something that I'd consider purchasing for myself as well. It really does appeal to women of all ages.
It would also make a great meditation companion. As a writer, I find writing to be very meditative. It really assists me in my daily breathing exercises and meditation sessions. It helps me to clear my head, to focus on nothing but myself for a few minutes. I usually use a blank notebook, but this journal would be even more helpful.
Buy this for all the women in your life who need a little bit of inspiration or encouragement, and then treat yourself to one as well!
The artwork is beautiful and there is a quote on every other page that relates to the following prompt. The prompts and their formats vary, I took a few pictures of some of the different formats. Some prompts are more open ended than others, like "What gives you light?"; others are much more specific, "What are three thoughts that made you smile today?". Some ask you to draw things or fill in certain spaces with color.
The book itself is fairly small in size and easily fits in my purse. The size of the pages gives you enough space to write but they're not large enough to make you feel like you have to spend an hour trying to fill the page.
I would really recommend this book to anyone who wants to spend more time getting to know themselves and figure out what is important to them.
