Launching My New Blog and Blessings!

I’ve decided to dedicate a space on my website to sharing information, updates and other things both literary and life-related that could be helpful to you book lovers out there!

If there is something specific you would like me to address, please feel free to reach out by emailing me.

In the meantime, I wanted to address the topic of gratitude. I have been told by one of my psychologist friends that research shows that a great strategy for adding more happiness to your life is by writing down what you are thankful for. She stressed the importance of making it a DIFFERENT blessing when you do write it down. So instead of saying, “I am grateful for my family” and writing that same one down everyday, it helps to change it up! I am also grateful for my family but today I will pick a different blessing so I am using a beautiful notebook that my friend, Michele, gave me to add my next one.

“I am grateful for finding a good place to live!”

It took me quite some time and a lot of energy and patience to find the right apartment here in Chicago,—so grateful that the search is over and I am all moved in. My friend, Michele (the one who gave me the blessing book photographed) helped me move too… guess who I will be writing to be grateful for tomorrow… :)
