I love books. I love words.
I am doing the 30-day book challenge to get some conversations started about books. Please do join in with a comment on your own books – or a link to your own post!
Day 26 and the next prompt is:
Name a book that changed your opinion on something.
This is a tough one as we often read books that reinforce our views and opinions.
So I will make a bit if an odd choice and pick a book that changed how I decide what to value.
The Tao of Pooh” by Benjamin Hoff
It is in some ways a cutesy book that attempts to show the concepts of eastern philosophy through the eyes of Pooh bear.
It mostly works and what connected with me is that life isn’t complicated unless we choose complications.
Simplify and smell the roses. Or at least taste the honey!
Life is short and beautiful. I want enough to be comfortable and enough companionship to feel loved.
What more is there?
