One of my New Year's Resolutions is to dedicate 5 hours to reading each week. When I was pregnant with my daughter, I spent most of my days reading and exploring the world of books. Since then, my reading has diminished, and I'm constantly blaming it on having "no time." The thing I've come to realize though is that if I'm going to read and have a relationship with books, I'm going to have to make the time, because for the next 18+ years time is not just going to present itself.
Anyways... so I'm currently reading The Happiness Project by Gretchin Rubin. It's been a bed-side staple of mine for about 8 months now that has just brought me so much inspiration in all aspects of my life. (Full review coming soon...)
More subconsciously, I bet you can also find yourself creating gossip without even thinking about it. I remember leaving a party with my husband and stating, about the host, "Wow, she's really ornery when she doesn't have things perfectly her way." Why I said it - because it's normal to say what's on your mind and that's what I was thinking. But... it wasn't nice to say. This is the type of gossip that should be avoided at all costs because it's just the thing that can backfire in your face.
Word to the wise, if you're going to gossip - only say nice things so that those positive traits are associated with you. :)
A little bit of nap time wisdom. Have a fabulous weekend!
