Congratulations on setting down a piece of heavy baggage…whatever it may be…
I’ve read a few really simple quotes recently that make sense no matter what issue you’re dealing with.
Your words are not lofty drivel. And you’re never boring. I love your line Good writing comes from friction in daily life. To take it further, good writing also comes from pain in daily life, and humor in daily life and courage, and failure and uncertainty and the raw humanity in daily life.
Thanks for this post. I always say that your writing speaks to my heart. Again, this is spot-on! I have been addicted to self-help books since the late 1980’s. It all started with Oprah and her “live your best life” message. No one had ever offered me positive advice about life in general. I was hooked!
