I am a big fan of public libraries especially good ones.  At our local library in Colorado - a superb library for such a small town - I checked out 21 books.  Yep, you heard me.  Twenty-one.  Books for me, Mr. UpCyclist, Lil O and even Jedi (well, books about dogs and how smart they are).

Anyway, some of the books I chose.  Other books chose me.

This book, The Joy of Appreciative Living, was one of the books that chose me (affiliate link).  I'm glad it did.  I've been practicing the daily exercises for two weeks now.  I even did the big weekly activity - visualizing the life you want to lead.  There is something about this book that resonates with me.

Jen's Journal

I think it reminds me of life coaching with Sue and reframing everyday situations - especially the sticky ones.

If you have space in your summer reading queue, I highly recommend The Joy of Appreciative Living.  Plus, page 47 has the best, reflective questions.  I have become a big fan of good, curious questions.
