When I graduated high school, I gave all my best friends copies of "The World According to Mister Rogers: Important Things to Remember." And a few months into my weight loss journey, I found a copy of "Life's Journeys According to Mister Rogers: Things to Remember Along the Way" at a thrift store, so I bought it immediately. The wisdom is unparalleled:
All I can say is, it's worth the struggle to discover who you really are and how you, in your own way, can put life together as something that means a lot to you.From time to time, I find myself dipping into the book, a collection of short thoughts and anecdotes, for inspiration and motivation. And it absolutely never falls short of perfection.
Yesterday, one of my favorite magazines/websites, MentalFloss, shared this video of Mister Rogers accepting a Lifetime Achievement Emmy award:
Such a lovely person, no?
It had me thinking about you, reader. And about my family, and my friends. And all the people who have been there along the way as I have worked to create the person I am today. And how endlessly thankful I am to have such love and support.
So, I'm going to give away two packages: one copy each of these Mister Rogers books
