With all that in mind I've been reflecting on the type of reading I usually do and how I'd like to use my reading time in the future. I've never been a big fan of reading inspiration or self help books. I guess I've always been pleased with my life and so I've never felt the need. But, the life of a working mom has awakened me to a whole new set of worries and stresses that I never knew I could have, so for 2013 I've found a few books I'd like to make time for to hopefully inspire me when times get tough and I feel overwhelmed.
- One Thousand Gifts by Ann Voscamp- A friend of mine recommended this to me. I've already put my name on the waiting list at the library for the ebook.
- Simple Abundance: A Day Book of Comfort and Joy by Sarah Ban Breathnach- I'm a bit skeptical about this book, but it seems popular. I just wish I actually knew someone who had read it so I could know more about this book than the recommendation of strangers on random website.
- The Happiness Project by Gretchen Rubin- If I like this book, there's a sequel, Happier At Home, which I've also heard some good buzz about.
