Thank-you so much to my friend Kelli Abrahamian at I Had a Delicious Time. On her Facebook page this morning she posted this intriguingly titled article. 10 Things Your Friends Wish You Knew, so I clicked through to this amazing site Marc and Angel Hack Life Practical Tips for Productive Living. Brilliant, yet simply insightful stuff.
I am a recovering ‘self help’ junkie. I used to read all sorts of books hoping to find the answers to my life. Then I went through a whole “throw the baby out with the bath water” kind of thinking. I guess I got overloaded with information.
Maturity and and two books helped me become more self accepting, which I think is the key to happiness. Those two books are The Four Agreements by Don Miguel Ruiz and Happiness is a Serious Problem: A Human Nature Repair Manual by Dennis Prager. Between these two powerful works, I have become happier.
The last few years I have again opened myself up to the wisdom of others. If it’s practical and smart, I like it. I think that is why I liked the lists in Marc and Angel Hack’s site. I love a good list and these were clear, concise and easy to ready. Here are a few that caught my eye and I have bookmarked to further review. Enjoy and Happy April 1st!
