"I’m listening to this on audio for the second time (last read 5 years ago) as a motivator while doing those mind-numbing home care tasks like the dishes and decluttering. It works 👍🏻" Oct 09, 2022 08:05PM

Book cover for Raising Emotionally Strong Boys: Tools Your Son Can Build On for Life
I’m quick to remind them that screens are an escape, not a coping strategy. As we’ll discuss more throughout this book, boys are instinctively skilled in numbing out, and we always want to be training them toward healthy coping. Technology ...more

“In the beautiful words of Lore Wilbert Ferguson: Tell me, I want to say to my fellow writers, tell me of your inner demons, tell me of your flesh. I want to hear the war that waged within you as you navigated complex stories and spaces. I want to know how hard you fought and how much you wept and how little you prayed. Tell it honest, tell it slant, tell it however you want to, but tell the truth because the truth is ten thousand little protests that got you where you are and every one of them matters to God and to me and even to you because there you are and there you were all along.5”
Rachel Marie Kang, Let There Be Art: The Pleasure and Purpose of Unleashing the Creativity within You

Shauna Niequist
“But when you realize that the story of your life could be told a thousand different ways, that you could tell it over and over as a tragedy, but you choose to call it an epic, that's when you start to learn what celebration is. When what you see in front of you is so far outside of what you dreamed, but you have the belief, the boldness, the courage to call it beautiful instead of calling it wrong, that's celebration.”
Shauna Niequist, Cold Tangerines: Celebrating the Extraordinary Nature of Everyday Life

John Green
“There comes a time when we realize that our parents cannot save themselves or save us, that everyone who wades through time eventually gets dragged out to sea by the undertow - that, in short, we are all going.”
John Green, Looking for Alaska

Elizabeth Gilbert
“Anyhow, the older I get, the less impressed I become with originality. These days, I’m far more moved by authenticity. Attempts at originality can often feel forced and precious, but authenticity has quiet resonance that never fails to stir me.”
Elizabeth Gilbert, Big Magic: Creative Living Beyond Fear

Shauna Niequist
“Nothing good comes easily. You have to lose things you thought you loved, give up things you thought you needed. You have to get over yourself, beyond your past, out from under the weight of your future. The good stuff never comes when things are easy.”
Shauna Niequist, Cold Tangerines: Celebrating the Extraordinary Nature of Everyday Life
