Enneagram 4 Life Hack

Accept that you need to feel special. Realize that you can determine what "special" is.

Notes from a Big Country by Bill Bryson Bryson, known mainly for his European travelogues, here documents his return to the USA through a series of newspaper essays.  Having tasted life in Europe, his musings about his home country are mostly exasperated.  Occasionally, usually at the prodding of his British wife, he remembers something lovely… Continue reading What I Read | APRIL 2017
