I am going to start reading today 1st one I am going to read is Empower Yourself by Miranda Kerr

Suzenna

If it doesn't challenge you,it will not change you!

Only I can change my life. No one can do it for me!

A goal should scare you a little, and excite you a lot!

It always seems impossible until it is done!

Oliver Burkeman has also written a book called 'How to Become Slightly Happier and Get a Bit More Done'

I just love the realism of that title!

So often, books promise to solve all our problems and deliver untold happiness and success. Highly unlikely! This book, well it has more manageable intentions!

I haven't read it yet. Has anyone else read it? Is it any good?

I'm reading The Antidote: Happiness for People Who Can't Stand Positive Thinking by Oliver Burkeman. For me, I've found that in not striving for happiness I'm able to focus on contentment and peace in my life. The book is - so far - talking about how the whole movement of "don't think bad thoughts" is basically denying the fact that, hey, bad stuff can happen and frequently does. Do you have to be prepared for it? Yes. Do you need to obsess, fret, and worry? Not so much.

I love this list, and writing down some interesting ones that I'd like to check out.

5 minutes daily of something spiritual... sometimes I read bits of the Bible before heading into work after meditation- setting my mind straight and ready for the day.

I recommend "As A Man Thinketh" by James Allen, and often read this one over and over again because it is so dense with good information that makes you think deeply on the way you look at life and about your own thoughts.

Just arrived: "Grandmother's Recipes--Traditional Food From The Heart Of The Home," by Jane Maple. These are recipes from her grandmother in England, and I have no idea what some of the measurements or ingredients are. Will have to Google the names. My Mother was a good cook, but left none of her recipes behind. I keep searching old recipes in hopes of finding her beef soup, chicken soup, ham hock and beans, and cornbread. I do have her delicious bread recipe, and used to make it from scratch.

Decades ago, my Father participated in a training session at work: "How to Win Friends and Influence People," (Dale Carnegie) and it changed his life. I wanted to know more about it so I downloaded the Kindle edition to my laptop. Then, my DD told me she had her Grandfather's book and asked if I would like to have it. OH, YES!

It is an interesting book. The first chapter was about how criticism does not work to influence people in a positive way. I am thrilled to have his own, physical book to see if there are any comments inside. So grateful to have this precious treasure that belonged to my Father.

Nanalisa and Bewellmom........ I'm re-reading The Four Agreements right now too. I just saw Don Miguel Ruiz interview on Oprah's Super Soul Sunday. It inspired me to find my copy again.


I try to hold fast to the truth that a full and thankful heart cannot entertain great conceits. When brimming with gratitude, one's heartbeat must surely result in outgoing love, the finest emotion that we can ever know. AS BILL SEES IT

Sobriety is a journey, not a destination.

Life is not about waiting for the storm to pass, it's about learning to dance in the rain.

I'm reading Team of Rivals: The Political Genius of Abraham Lincoln by Doris Kearns Goodwin and The Power of Six by Pittacus Lore. Both are outside of my usual choice types, recommended by my husband and teenage son respectively -- it's interesting to stretch this way.

Can't just read one book at a time emoticon After attending a GONG meditation I've been reading up on Chakras so I'm sort of in between two

1) The Lord's Prayer - the 7 Chakras by Dana Williams (short read)

2) Love Beyond Life; The healing power of After - Death communicators by Joel Martin and Patricia Romanowski

I know - they are totally different reads but... emoticon

One of the team goals is to read a spiritual book for five minutes each day. I am curious what you all are reading.

I am reading How To Know God by Deepak Chopra. It is a good book but it is taking me a long time to get through it.
