You can live if nothing is a miracle;
You can live as if everything is a miracle”
Feeling challenged by the stresses of today's world? Looking for guidance in finding your true compass? Wouldn't it be nice to find a roadmap through the chaos?
Good news—you're holding it! Self-help author Ana Weber joins with her life partner Mario Haber for her 10th book, Sweet Nothings: a series of reflections and meditations to steer a happy course through modern life, in 14 bite-sized chapters.
Each chapter pairs a "sweet" (something we recognize as a pleasure) with a "nothing" (often, a challenge to our thinking and living patterns), sandwiching them between a wisdom quote and reflective questions. Each chapter takes only a few minutes to read, and to put into practice.
For instance, in Chapter 10, under a quote by Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr., you'll learn to balance the "sweet" of common sense with the "nothing" of calmness and peace of mind. Other chapters balance such "sweets" and "nothings" as graciousness with freedom to cultivate, music and time, love and the present, in different formats such as checklist exercises, meditations, and the authors' own experiences.
In a world full of constant overstimulation, neither withdrawal nor blind immersion is a workable strategy. You need the ability to step back, take a breath, and absorb what's going on, and then continue from a wiser, informed perspective, is crucial. Weber and Haber can help you find that balance.
