Some days it is easy to get sucked right into the thoughts of all the things to do, the lack of sleep, or really any other not perfectly happy thought. Some days you may need a little more to help fuel you in happiness for the day.
When I started to reach 60 days of Happiness, I thought it would be a great way to start my day. Read a short snip-it type chapter and be ready to go.
As it turns out, that type of reading does not suite me well at all! I found it very difficult to read just a page or two in the morning and often forgot to read at all for days at a time, maybe longer.
The beginning of the book explains that it can be read in a daily ritual type format as it is displayed or it can be read straight through. So as it was not working to read in daily format I tried to read it cover to cover…. nope, too much.
This book sat on my nightstand and stared at me… I wanted to read it. I enjoyed the writing,but wasn’t finding what I needed in it to read consistently one way or the other. After a while it became buried in the stack of things on my nightstand and I stopped seeing it daily.
After a hard day and trying desperately to clean up the clutter in my bedroom in a fit, I found the book. I stopped what I was doing and flipped through to a random page. I read that page and felt comfort and relief in the craziness of the day I had just had. I had also found my way to read this book.
I needed this book for the occasions when the messages were needed, not a preemptive way, but it was working. There was something to this.
Looking at this book in a new way gave me a place to go when I needed it most. These reminders were inspirational before a hard day I knew was coming or a gentle reminder to breathe and it go after a long day.
Each daily entry offers something different, but none disappoint. I found some great humor throughout the book and deep thoughts as well.
