Light Reading

I don’t read a lot of self-help books because I find them to be pretentious, but when my mom was out a couple months ago, she saw the title and thought of me.

She’s not aware of my anxiety or self-destructive behavior. She just knows I like the phrase “Keep Calm and Carry On.”

It’s a good phrase; it’s short, simple and effective for everyday use. That, and you can make anything humorous be changing “carry on” and adding your own saying. It’s fun.

I finally decided to read this book and I can honestly say while it’s an editing nightmare, the tips and lessons given in are quite… Well, good. They’re logical, simple, repetitive, effective (apparently) steps that can help you manage your anxiety.

I’m kind of in love with that premise, and I’m going to try them soon enough. If this book has taught me anything, really, what’s there to worry about?
