Then Again by Diane Keaton
Then Again

hollymarie0407, August 5, 2012

Although this memoir is organized chronologically, sometimes I had trouble deciphering where Keaton was going with it. She said it was about her and her Mom. But there were side trips.... The most interesting thing about it was her Mom's artistic work with journals and Keaton's exploration of death in the last chapter.

The Gifts of Imperfection: Let Go of Who You Think You're Supposed to Be and Embrace Who You Are by Brene Brown
The Gifts of Imperfection: Let Go of Who You Think You're Supposed to Be and Embrace Who You Are

hollymarie0407, September 5, 2011

A friend gave this to me last Christmas and I thought, "Soooo, what are ya tryin' to say?" I was so put off by the title that I couldn't make the time to read it until a month ago. But once I did, it was like taking a spa trip for my spirit after it's been depleted by life's treadmill.

The author teaches the components of "Wholehearted (compassionate and authentic)Living" as guideposts she's discovered through extensive client interviews. Although the author has a doctorate, her use of language is easy to understand and accessible. Her personal stories about struggles with perfectionism, shame, and vulnerability encourage even the most entrenched perfectionist that we can let go of our unworthiness baggage and experience joy just as we are right now.
