I "heart" books.

I really do. Admittedly, I don't read as often as I'd like.
I also subscribe to a handful of magazines I don't read.
Lack of time I guess.

One of my favorite things to do is go to the bookstore
and comb through the bargain books section. I can usually find a handful
of books each visit - that I might not get to right away, but books that
will fill up my book cases and make them look pretty.
Going to the bookstore is a must on swim meet weekends
when we are away and need a little somethin' somethin' to occupy some time.

This round, I picked up a book that I am just in love with.

I am humbled to say that I could use some help from time to time.
Whether it is about me personally,
help with a kid issue,...
There are words out there somewhere that may have an impact
on me or my situation,
and who am I to turn away from that.
Some people call them "self help" books.
I call them "I'm never too old to learn/change something.." books.

hey ....
172 simple acts to change your life???
HOLY GOOD LORD - I'm open to that!!
Check out one of my favorites so far:

to let yourself be happy
Be sad when you must.
Grieve when you must.
But don't be sad just because others expect it of you.
Take charge of your own happiness.
We are all entitled to be happy.
Seek light instead of shadows.
Treasure your happiness.
Share it.

This book is really great. And I understand this Patrick Lindsay
guy has written others.

I may have to move myself out of the bargain section to find it, but I
think I might just do that. If I can set a goal to check off as many of the
172 things in this book, I will be happy.

And maybe it will have changed my life a bit.
