I can’t believe the weekend is finally here. On Saturday I am going to an all day blogger conference in Boston and looking forward to meeting up with Kate who is also going. This will be my first blogger conference and I am a little excited because it is by Wayfair. Hopefully I will learn a ton and maybe get some cute swag. Either way lunch is served by a local chef and a cocktail hour at the end. Total score. Enough of my rambling let’s got on with my favorites from this week.
Favorite Book: I have two books to share with you because I couldn’t decide. One was for fun for the Winter Book Challenge and one was for personal growth.
The second book was a really short read, it was only 149 pages and it read as if you personally had a life coach. The Experiment: Discover a Revolutionary Way to Manage Stress and Achieve Work-Life Balance discusses how to reduce stress by dealing with the everyday stresses in a different way. It also discusses how to find time and structure your day to be more efficient, and tackle the things you dread the most in order to move on from the day.
In the way the book is structured Dennis is a business owner on the verge of a mental breakdown and divorce and runs into Robert a life coach on the train. They see each other in multiple sessions and focus on certain issues in his life. It was broken down in such a way that I found myself saying duh! Why is this so simple but you just don’t see it when you are in it. Though in the book one of the basic principles was Compassion. Compassion for yourself for not getting it sooner, or being frustrated that you weren’t learning the lesson sooner. It also gave Dennis homework and tasks to do which you could use for your own life. I can’t recommend this book more highly, I think I need to read it quarterly every year.
Favorite DIY: Such a cute and easy easy DIY, I will be doing this one really soon.
Favorite Quote: Don’t focus on the small hurdles but the overall happiness.
Favorite Funnies: If only.
How I was feeling on Wednesday
Yes, I am a dork but for some reason this made me chuckle.
That is all I have. Go enjoy the weekend!
What are your plans for the weekend?
Also linking up with Natasha for 5 on Friday.
