Part of my healing process has been reading words of wisdom from other people that have either gone through grief or divorce or researched it. Counseling has been great with helping me understand my emotions, but sometimes you just need more insight and something to help you continue to process your thoughts. So, most weekends and weeknights you'll find me curled up on this blue velvet couch in my favorite Natori jams reading, crying, laughing, and reading some more.
We are two weeks into our first month of 2018, and I already have five books on my list. Some wonderful women that have gone through hard things have given me books telling me emphatically, "You have to read this!" The books below have just showed up in my home whether it's someone handing them to me or mailing them to me. I've given myself the task of reading one book a month.
- Rising Strong by Brene Brown
- Of Mess & Moxie by Jen Hatmaker
- Option B by Sheryl Sandberg and Adam Grant
- Second Firsts by Christina Rasmussen
- Tiny Beautiful Things; Advice on love and life from Dear Sugar by Cheryl Strayed
I need seven more recommendations. What are some other books that you would recommend in this season of life?
