You will never be happy if you continue to search for what happiness consists of. You will never live if you are looking for the meaning of life.
Today on a trip to target I picked up a new book, The Subtle Art Of Not Giving A #@%! by Mark Manson
The title itself drew me in and although I am only through the first two chapters I am finding it to be such an easy read. The message differs from many self-help books I have read. If you’re looking for a guide to happiness, this isn’t it. If you enjoy chanting in the mirror “I deserve happiness” on repeat 30 times, this book isn’t for you. This is a honest book that allows you to focus on the #@%! you should give and not give a #@%! where it isn’t needed.
Again, I am early on in my reading but I LOVE that this book is realistic. Life has challenges, life is unexpected and unfortunately/ fortunately life sucks sometimes. I love that this book encourages you to think past what your idea of happiness is and focus on the challenges you will face to get there, that is where you find out if you want something bad enough.
So excited to keep reading…
Have you read this book or another by Mark Manson?
A good life is not a life without problems. A good life is a life with good problems.
For those wondering, I know I have not been posting as actively as originally planned. The reason is simple: I am living the best life possible! Although I want to take moments out to share my new finds, some great products, and just about me — my intention is to live in the moment and not allow the freedom of sharing to become the burden of creating content.
