The Little Book of Big Wisdom

The Little Book of Big Wisdom

They say that the best things come in small packages.   Well I do when people take the mickey out of me only being 5’4 and now shorter than two of the teens.  Three if youngest is wearing her spiky shoes.

So when a little book landed on my doorstep called The Little Book of Big Wisdom I was intrigued.

It has been written by Debbie Huxton to “get you thinking, inspire and encourage you to sieze life with both hands and live it to its fullest”.    And as I am trying to do more of that this year, with my Happiness Jar and generally trying to be as positive as possible, I sat down and read this book from cover to cover.

It didn’t take long.  Each page is a punchy phrase to make you stop and think.   Or to reflect.   Or smile.   I love it.   And it is a book that you can have in the bottom of your handbag and dip into every day.

The past often tries calling you.   Best let it go to voicemail.

Debbie describes herself as a “life changer, leadership coach and speaker helping organisations, business owners and employees to change the wisdom of business and life for the better by using her thought provoking and easy to action tools”which does sound a bit airy fairy.    But actual it is a great way to live your life as it is basically spreading positivity.   It is a lovely way to look at the world and as philosophies go, I really like it.

I especially like:

Shit happens.  You can’t change the situation but you can change how you deal with it

True, right?

Welcome to MummyBarrow. I am a slightly bonkers mum of three, wife to one. Never really sitting still as there is always so much to do! This is my bit of the web to get things out of my head and where I hope to make you laugh or think. I don't really talk about my children too much as they can Google themselves but I do talk about family life. And juggling. Oh and food and drink. I talk about those a lot. So do pull up a chair, grab a biscuit and have a rummage.
