How A Book Can Make Your Life Better
I read the title and was immediately intrigued. I read the subtitle and felt a rock in my stomach.
I love the idea of using the pockets of time in my life to be more productive, but the notion that I should spend that currency on me? Well, that was a bit much.
I decided to dive into the book anyway. My main motivation was to check it off my to do list. I had received an advance copy and wanted to get through it to respond to some questions about it. Just a few pages into the first chapter I stopped to find a highlighter.
God created you with a unique set of gifts and passions. May The Fringe Hours give you permission to pursue those desires.
And I was hooked.
It was a new kind of hooked for me as far as books go. I found myself wanting to push through like a page turning novel, but needing to be more thoughtful with my reading and processing. Because the truth is I wanted this book to be a catalyst for change in my life.
Not the January 1st kind of change, but change like the spring where combining the right elements over time produce something beautiful. I wanted that kind of change. And it has been.
Words are seeping into my soul through all the dirt beneath the surface.
When my shortcomings get the best of me, grace reminds me that I am a child of God and I am loved.
I don’t want to close the pages on this book. I’ve been busy trying to wear so many hats and make sure they are perfect without realizing pieces of me were falling apart. In The Fringe Hours I’ve been able to walk through who I am, what I love, and how to make it happen.
It’s a process that won’t end unless I let it. Some things are outside of our control, and that’s okay. But this is something we can make happen and doing so will only make us and those we love so much happier.
How do you make time for you in the busyness of life?
