“Hollowness: that I understand. I’m starting to believe that there isn’t anything you can do to fix it. That’s what I’ve taken from the therapy sessions: the holes in your life are permanent. You have to grow around them, like tree roots around concrete; you mold yourself through the gaps.”- The Girl on the Train

Didn’t actually expect to enjoy this book,  but was surprised at some of the insightful advice found in it: such as using other people’s wants as barganing chips so that everyone can win.  Overall, a pretty down-to-earth, practical read.

“It isn’t what you have or who you are or where you are or what you are doing that makes you happy or unhappy. It is what you think about it.”

14/365 – There’s a Story (Mitch Albom)

14-365
“But there’s a story behind everything.
How a picture got on a wall.
How a scar got on your face.
Sometimes the stories are simple,
and sometimes they are hard
and heartbreaking.
 But behind all your stories
 is always your mother’s story,
 because hers is where yours begin.”
– Mitch Albom
