[17] about a book...

Day 17:  A book you’ve read that changed your views on something.

Okay, I'm about to go [there].  It was one of Oprah's books, "A New Earth" by Eckhart Tolle.  Don't judge. We all learn in very different and unique ways.

It is a very deep, dense read. Though the book itself didn't necessarily change my views - it's not meant for that. It did change my level of awareness.  I can feel how an environment affects my mood. I hear the words I speak.  I try to avoid speaking unconsciously.  Okay, that doesn't always happen...but I am very aware when it does.  That's certainly something.

In many ways, I feel more at peace.  And {wait for it} centered.  Yeah, I said it.  I'm a little embarrassed for myself. But it's a blessing to feel emotionally...balanced.
