Last week I revisited the small book, Don’t Sweat the Small Stuff, and it spoke to me….. again. Richard Carlson wrote it 13 years, but my life and my perspective have changed since then. His insightful, universal truths are so pertinent to everyday living — with a calmer, healthier existence as his goal — that its wake-up call will benefit everyone who adds it to their bookshelf. Every page is a reminder of how far I’ve let my life stray from what’s truly important. The subtitle, Simple Ways to Keep the Little Things from Taking Over your Life, makes this little book a wake-up call I’ve decided to treat myself to on a regular basis. In fact, it’s a good addition to the things I’ve already started to do on my birthday every year to take care of myself: annual checkup, mammogram, massage and, lately, a facial. Love that.
