My post-op Book Marathon

I finished Laura Munson’s book “This Is Not The Story You Think It Is: A Season of Unlikely Happiness”  yesterday ( which I loved)

Antonio Damasio
” joy is the signpost that we are in a state of optimal coordination and smooth running of the operations of life. Wear and tear is at a minimum, aging slows, and, in every possible way, people are at their best”

“Sometimes your joy is the source of your smile, but sometimes your smile can be the source of your joy”

“Breathing in I calm my body, breathing out, I smile.”


~ Thich Nhat Hanh
