That may be true (or not so true this year) when it comes to weather, but when talking about the self, it’s not so easy. A lot of the time, we’re both creatures simultaneously. 

As a lamb, we develop thought, understanding, and empathy. It is a time to discover our own desires, our own flaws, our own passions. Discover where we are at this moment and how we can be better to ourselves and those around us. It is a time of patience and reflection; allowing ourselves to fully understand our inner and outer worlds. Being a lamb is about finding oneself. 

Being a lion, we have reached that understanding of who we are and what we stand for, and what we’re most passionate about. We are sure that our actions will make a difference, no matter how small, medium-sized, or enormous they may seem to others. Being a lion is about finding one’s voice.

Our journey from lamb to lion will never be linear. We will always become lambs again when tragedy strikes. We will become lions when we have to defend our families and friends, even ourselves at times. We are constantly changing between one, the other, and both simultaneously. So below, are a list of lamb and lion books. Whether you need to find or have already found your inner strength, these books can give some much needed encouragement.

Because I tend to read across all genres and ages, this list includes a mixture of Childrens, YA, and Adult literature.
