Teaser Tuesday is back for round two of the Love Is In Da Blog challenge. For all my Type A readers out there, anyone looking to implement the power of a positive mentality or just curious how to live a more simple life, this one is for you.
I purchased the Kindle version of this book a few years ago when I was stressed, overwhelmed and unappreciated at work. Once I started reading I couldn’t put my tablet down because it was something that I needed to hear. Every chapter spoke to me, gave me a lot to reflect on and ultimately after reading it everyday for a month, changed the way I looked at things.
While you can’t go through life without a care in the world, you also don’t need to go through it stressed, frustrated and carrying negative emotions from one day to the next. I love the insights and the quick easy to read chapters. My husband and I were reading a chapter or two a day in conjunction with another book but got out of the routine and have to pick it back up. I have read it more than once but I enjoy reading it with him to discuss the chapter, how we can apply it in our life, and how we can benefit from applying it. There are a couple of other versions including one for work, love, women, teen, and family. I haven’t read them all but I prefer this one because you can apply the principles to various areas in your life.
Now for the teaser. I picked a chapter that has to do with a theme that I’ve written about in the past couple of posts-
Don’t Sweat the Small Stuff and It’s All Small Stuff: Simple Ways to Keep the Little Things From Taking Over Your Life (Don’t Sweat the Small Stuff Series)
“There is something rejuvenating and peaceful about being alone and having some time to reflect, work or simply enjoy the quiet.”
“Whether it’s ten minutes of meditation or yoga, spending a little time in nature, or locking the bathroom door and taking a ten-minute bath, quiet time to yourself is a vital part of life.”
I couldn’t have picked more fitting lines for my two sentence teaser as my husband just took the girls to the park to give me a bit of time to be at home in absolute silence (except for the wheels in my head turning and the sound of the keyboard strokes).
I encourage you to pick up this quick read and read it while you enjoy your morning coffee or during a lunch break or at night before you go to bed. If you have already read it, did you enjoy it? What was your favorite thing about it? Have you read any of the other editions? Do you know of any other books like this that you would recommend?
