Negative feelings keep us awake at night and cause us to over-react during the day. They heave, yank and generally drag down the quality of our lives and even push away those we love—which is why a number of the “Things That Make Life Better” are about releasing anger, sadness, guilt and the like.
An essential part of this book is about letting go that life-limiting baggage and moving on.
WHAT THIS BOOK CAN DO
It can give you that one often overlooked element for releasing negative emotion.
You will know what to do about that most popular way of trying to stop guilt—you know, the one that doesn’t quite work.
Forgiveness too: so simple to talk about; so simple to do; and so very difficult to continue doing—some helpful tips await.
And so much more. Best of all, while making these discoveries, you will find yourself being entertained.
Curiosity may have killed that feline fur ball, but she or him learned a lot before exiting number nine. I too have been curious, wondering why we, I or they acted this way, looked or did it that way or were otherwise human.
But curiosity is such a casual word, and the truth is my desire to know was almost desperate. There were times in life that I felt angry when there was no one around, unhappy when life was just fine, times I had trouble with relationships for absolutely no reason, and I felt sad when…well, you get the idea.
That desperate curiosity, along with forty years of inner work, has lead to some interesting answers.
Besides curious, I am also a writer who began with a column in the San Jose Mercury News, nationally syndicated. My current project is this column and series of books, “Things That Make Life Better”.
I also love talking with those courageous people who are going for a positive change, and I live to see that eye-widening moment of understanding—the kind you will experience with this book.
So from the Central Coast of the West, I submit these curious jottings of curiosity to be browsed by those who will hopefully find them just as entertaining as they do helpful.
