Books, Books, Books!
Are you an avid reader? Same here!
Like many, I often find pleasure, relaxation, and even inspiration in books!
Some books in my queue lately have been juicy biographies of celebrities, such as:
Diane von Furstenberg’s “A Life Unwrapped”, and
Jennifer Elise Grey’s “Out of the Corner.”
What I loved was that these authors showed vulnerability; sharing stories that could be thought of as failures in their careers and lives.
When I was writing my book, I was thinking, should I put my personal “failure stories” in or not? I realized they are necessary because when others write stories that only paint beautiful pictures of their lives to impress, it actually can do the opposite.
Being honest and showing vulnerability is so much MORE impressive. This is what boosts human connection.
I’d love to hear what books you’ve found inspiring recently!
