Sounds interesting. I'll see if I can find it. Lord knows I need to be better about balance.
I've had a couple moments in my life when something clicked in my head like the last piece of a puzzle that makes the picture whole. Then I wonder why in the world I thought the way I did before. It's a pretty amazing feeling. I'm glad you got that from the book.
I cannot make myself be thin today, but I CAN be healthier by making a few smart choices. I focus on what needs to be done today and tomorrow takes care of itself.

Thank you Sparkfriends for being my roses!
The dominant message of the book proposes that, for an individual to be healthy, the four key components in life need to be in balance at all times Physical, Mental, Social, and Religious. The most life changing idea in this book for me was that your current life is the direct outcome from the choices you have made. Seems simple right? For some reason I could not internalize this until I read it in this book. It was ground breaking to realize that if I didn't like my life, or a portion of it, all I had to do was make different decisions. I highly recommend this book. It was out of print for a while, but now they are reprinting it. It definitely teaches a clearer way of thinking and gaining balance in your life.

And be done with it.

Absurdities have crept in.
Forget them as soon as you can."
