I almost didn’t read this book. A friend said it would be her next read and asked if I wanted to read along with her. I checked some of the reviews and they were not stellar. But this is a good book buddy so I ordered a copy and jumped in. And it is a good story. These sentences caught my attention on the first pages:
“if discontent is your disease, travel is medicine. It resensitizes. It opens you up to see outside the patterns you follow. Because new places require new learning. It forces your childlike self back into action. When you are a kid, everything is new. You notice because you need to.” Jedediah Jenkins, To Shake the Sleeping Self
This is part of the shift I have been chasing. Wake up. Pay attention. Notice because you need to.
I will probably finish this book today and then I will have my first square on my SAH book Bingo card. One down, 24 to go!
By the way, now is a great time to order a book from your favorite independent bookstore.
