This is one of my favorite things to do. . . my happy place.
There’s nothing like the treating myself to the beach, sitting in the sun, and reading a good book. It’s multi-tasking at its finest. Learning while relaxing and soaking in vitamin D!
My latest escape to the beach involved this book, listen, learn, and love: How to Drastically improve Your Relationships in 30 Days or Less!, by Susie Albert Miller.
Susie Miller has worked as a therapist and life coach for over twenty years. In her book she writes,
“Every relationship has tough spots, tension, silence, or loud moments. If someone tells you otherwise, they are probably not being honest. People who enjoy healthy, thriving, and satisfying relationships have learned to navigate through difficult times with authenticity, perspective, and skills.”
This book offers the perspective and skills needed to help deepen relationships and navigate through awkward, tense relational challenges. Her advice spans the spectrum from co-workers to teen-age children to friendships and marriage.
Susie not only gives advice, but she also gives practical ways to implement these skills. Honestly, some are so simple they are profound (if that makes sense). But I must warn you that her skills often require thinking the best of the other person and putting him or her first.
“Loving Well changes lives. Relationships grow and thrive when we make the choice to Love Well because trust grows, defenses come down, and we become more authentic and transparent, causing our relationships to reach deeper levels.”
