Self Improvement Books


I should stick to my quilt technique books! I dont know why I do this to myself! I am reading another self improvement book, and I gotta tell ya, I have NO TIME for this ride she is taking me on! I dont WANT to go talk to my little girl self right now! We have really ( little G n me) talked the whole life thing out about a dozen times! I dont want to meditate and relax body parts! I have chit to do!!! But WHY cant I put it down? ( ok, take it out of my ears if u will) I found myself going to bed early, to get into a comfortable position, to do yet another mental exercise! Its not mental exercise that I need! ( well, depends on who u ask eh) I am all for improving myself, extending myself, broadening my horizons, forgiving the little girl inside me, but sometimes I just get up and say OH SHUT UP, give that crapola to your Father, and get on with the business of living a happy life! I suppose at the end of the day when I rationalize this, I can say that I receive little different things from each book that I read, that I had not heard before. For that reason, I keep on reading. I wish to always improve on myself. Mom's words ring often inside me. "If you don't use it, you're gonna lose it." Also, I am of the mind that we humans have really not used all of the brain power that we possess. But why must I spend a lifetime looking for those parts? Its taken me this long to get to where I am today, I'm kinda running out of time, u know? OK, so I need a self help book on why do I always feel like Im running out of time?...sheesh... never ending isnt it? So as I mentioned in an earlier post, I am listening to Audible series. Living An Empowered Life, by Denise Lynch. A good read, heard it all before, her voice is a powerful sedative all by itself, and I will go the distance with her, but frankly, next book I read will be on how not to outlive my money or something.. give the little Gina a freaking rest!
( Culture Warrior, Bill O reilly was better, albeit, not self improvement?) ( hmmm, maybe?)

You wouldn't believe how many of these "improvement" books I have on my shelf! I start reading them, get bored, and move on to something else. That is, until the next one hits the press! LOL.

Lynn: You wouldn't get bored of the funny story book called Fables from the Mud Bedtime Stories for Adults by Erik Quisling. I wasn’t sure what to expect when I read this book and I was really quite surprised by the content.
It has very few words but will have you laughing out loud as you read it.
I read the whole thing very quickly but keep returning to it to reread some of the crazy antics.
Trust me you'll love it!
