Reverb2011 Prompt for Day 5:
What has been your favorite book (or books if you can’t pick just one) that you’ve read this year?
Well. I can't pick one. So I'll go with three.
1. Belcanto by Ann Patchett
This book moved me. It's an emotionally powerful page turner filled with music and the politics of power. Read it.
2. The Hunger Games by Suzanne Collins (three book series)
The Hunger Games series is one of those young adult series that all adults should read. It will knock you down. It's a very fast read and most definitely worth all of the hype.
3. The Happiness Project by Gretchen Rubin
This book is less a "read this and do exactly what she does" sort of book and more of a "this makes me think about how I can re-evaluate my priorities and get organized in a way that helps me to more actively tackle the things bringing me down" sort of book. I thought that it was an extremely motivating read. It made me think about ways to tackle the messy parts of my life in a more manageable way. I would love to do a year long happiness project myself. Maybe for my Golden Birthday (just learned about this concept recently!) year, which starts next October.
Day 6: Ease. What can you do to add ease to 2012?
This is a great question, but seems one that is difficult for me to chew. I just sat here staring at the screen for the past twenty minutes thinking. What can I do to add ease to next year? It's true I guess I do a lot to sabotage my ease. to overthink and overcomplicate and overstress myself to death. but then I thought, well what does Ease really mean here. Not everything can happen with ease or should happen with ease, but that's not the question. what can I do to add ease to 2012.
I hate looking up definitions, but I'm gonna. From Merriam-Webster:
