Day 3022 – Another Book That Changed My Life – Reading People By Anne Bogel

In case you’re brand spankin’ new, you know I love to read. I read all the time. One person who has helped me embrace my reading even more, is Anne Bogel of Modern Mrs. Darcy. She has been sharing about a book she wrote for a while, and after weeks of waiting, I finally got the audio version from the library. Audio books are harder for me to get through because I just don’t have the time to fit them in and listen as much as I would sit down to read. Thankfully, one thing I’m learning about myself is the need to break up my afternoons with a walk, dance party, and laughing like crazy. In my short walks, I’ve been making my way through the book. I’ve also gotten in a few chunks while driving to my job in Annapolis. I JUST finished last night, and I have to say, AMAZING! I’m a big fan of personality tests, and so is she. The book is about a number of different personality tests, and how they apply to your life. I found myself nodding along, and saying things like YES! in my head…..or out loud…. Truly getting to know yourself, knowing what you can and can’t handle, and not judging what you find has been huge in my life over the past few years. I’ve learned some things totally stress me out and I just can’t handle too much of it…or I have to cut it out completely. Things like nudity in movies, alcohol, or the books I read – I really can’t read some of the types of books I used to. I can’t watch some of the shows I used to. I can’t do some of the things I used to.

So to find a book that helps me further know myself, and embrace myself, gives me strength to continue in the path and forge ahead without apology. It also gave me some insight into others. So give Reading People* a listen, or a purchase. Or put in a hold request at the library. One thing I LOVE about Anne, is that she has no judgement for how you read a book.

Since I have no photo of her book, here’s a pretty picture. 😀

About 365 days of marriage

I started this blog in April of 2011. At the time, Bret and I were wedding photographers and it was a way to share how marriage is more about the day to day and so much more than the wedding day itself. For about 5 years, I blogged about the joys and sorrows of the Christian walk, marriage, work, family and friends. I’ve blogged every day since a few weeks after I started. In May of 2015, we photographed our last wedding. Now, I have become passionate about simplicity, particularly in marriage, Christianity, business, travel and life. For a number of reasons, we have become minimalists. I’ve found that having simplicity makes life so much deeper, refreshing and joyful. I hope that this blog will help others see the benefits of living simply.
