Monday Musings :: Reset

morning pages

I’m reading The four agreements by Don Miguel Ruiz. This book had been for months on my bedside table, but I was a little hesitant to start it. I do believe that the book finds you, not another way around! I knew I’d start it at the right time. Well, I did, and now I’m almost at the end. Not to be a spoiler, but the four agreements are:

  • Be impeccable with your word
  • Don’t take anything personally
  • Don’t make assumptions
  • Always do your best

The author goes deeper into each of these agreements and at the same time in a concise way, it’s like we are having a cuppa and he is an old friend.

“Find the courage to ask questions and to express what you really want. Communicate with others as clearly as you can to avoid misunderstandings, sadness and drama.”

“Every human is an artist. The dream of your life is to make beautiful art.”

I have concluded I need to reset! I need to end a few things that aren’t working for me anymore, and to start others that are in limbo waiting for an opportunity to show up.

“You can have many great ideas in your head, but what makes the difference is the action. Without action upon an idea, there will be no manifestation, no results, and no reward”

Have you read this book? If so, I’d like to hear about it. Have a great week!

Such a great book! I love the way Jodi’s characters are created and molded by the circumstances. The way she started it, from the ending to the beginning, made my imagination wonder most of the time trying to understand the motive behind certain scenes. 

Well, if you need a nice reading for the holidays, this one for sure is a great choice.
