i choose...day 22..


Saturday, January 18, 2014

True story:
True it is that 4 days ago I jumped on the "net" and added a transmission for this "i choose blog" that has been so zenjoyful to participate in emoticon Thanks to all for stopping by...

Several asked about the present hub bub in my reading pile...I joyfully share the excitement I am having in the tomes( this may be a wee bit lengthy so hang on tight)---->

1. "365 ways to RELAX mind, body & soul by Barbara L. Heller
I read a few suggestions a day, note the ideas in my reading journal & give the activity a rating after trying the "relax recipe":
thumbs up
will try again or
neutral
2. "Lao Tzu's Tao Teh Ching translated by John C.H. Wu
There are 81 "life lessons" in this classic...each day I review those I've read and then read 5-10 new ones (fun zen time)
3. "Easy-To-Use Zen by David Scott
4. "Zen it's history and teachings" by OSHO
5. "Living Out Loud..activities to fuel a creative life" by Keri Smith
FULLY loaded fun activity guided awesome book
6. "Don't Sweat the Small Stuff and it's all small stuff" by Richard Carlson PH.D:
100 entries to keep those little things from becoming big things--gotta love the positivity inside this little gem...read 3-5/reading session
7. emoticon (library book-mystery) = "Cool Repentance" by Antonia Fraser:
I try to keep those library books circulating!
8. "The Artist's Way" by Julia Cameron:
Started the "morning pages" exercise this very day!!!! emoticon
9. "The Silly Riddle Book" with pictures by R.W. Alley:
One silly riddle per read...trying to memorize a few so I can be ready for action when the young ones are prancing about emoticon
10. "Everyday Wisdom" by Dr. Dwayne W. Dyer:
Read one/day, contemplate the wisdom & highlight the choice...after all choices are highlighted, I've finished the book
11. "My First 1000 words in Japanese":
testing my memory cells with this little lovely
Sunday = nichi-yobi

My first book of 55 is in the wrapped up pile..."Friday, the Rabbi Slept Late" by Harry Kemelman... this was a mystery from the library shelves....

That is my list at the moment emoticon

emoticon Now for some choices to chew on:

I choose...active participation with the book shelves
I choose...getting' my journal on
I choose...reading outside my comfort zone for a little emoticon

Adding moments of reading immersion to my life....Zenjoy emoticon

    YOU GO Girl!!! Wow! That's quite the list! You are doing a whole lot of learning -- not just reading. Wow! I can just imagine you blossoming -- as you are feeding your mind, body and spirit!

While I'm not as voracious a reader as you are, I do plan to read more this year -- for all the reasons mentioned above!

Take care. emoticon

    Lots of reading!! Did you know that Julia Cameron wrote a diet book? It's called "The Writing Diet" and uses a lot of the techniques from the Artist's Way. I love that you are teaching yourself Japanese. I'm teaching myself French so that I can keep my brain engaged and join in the fun Alliance Franšais activities here in town.
