My house over-haul (or the “terrorizing of the house,” as TheBoy calls it) has had me flipping through magazines, during little breaks.. so I can sort out and throw out, those, too..
The problem is that most of these magazines were saved for a particular reason.. and I don’t find myself throwing out too many..
Like.. the January 2006 Townsend Letter for Doctors & Patients.
Interviewing Dr. Bernie Siegel, author of “101 Exercises for the Soul” and “365 Prescriptions for the Soul,” (in ref to 101 Exercises) they ask, “If I were limited to practicing just one “exercise” in your book, which one should it be?”
He replied, “Find a role model and live and act as if you were the person you want to be and treat yourself as well as you do your beloved pet. By rehearsing and practicing and having coaches to criticize and provide feedback, you can become a more loving human being and be happier too. you are a work in progress so don’t be critical of your mistakes and give up, but instead, forgive yourself, apologize, and move on. My role model is WWLD. Whenever I have a problem I ask myself, What Would Lassie Do?”
Both books have been added to my Amazon Wish List:
