Teaser Tuesday – The War of Art

When I made a change in my belief system and started living a different life based on those beliefs, I never dreamed that my daughter would grow up to share those beliefs.  There was a point when my children were growing up that I was extremely concerned because I didn’t take them to church or give them what I consider “the stories” I was told as a child.  But you know what?  My children are fine.  I believe they soaked up my spirituality in some ways, even though I didn’t teach it to them.

I suppose that’s called “Living By Example” or something like that.

The reason I mention this is that my daughter recommended this book to me.  I’m not sure it has a whole lot to do with spirituality, but she did mention she finished (and loved) a book I gave her for her birthday which was about spirituality.  So, thanks, Adelle, for the book recommendation.

I’m thinking if you haven’t already read The War of Art by Steven Pressfield, anyone who considers themselves an artist should buy it immediately.  I’m only a few pages in and I’m hooked.  I think it will also help with my Mindful Monday pursuits and basically life in general.

I hope you enjoy the quote I found from page 34 of the iBook copy.

“If you take Resistance at its word, you deserve everything you get.  Resistance is always lying and always full of shit.”

• BE CAREFUL NOT TO INCLUDE SPOILERS! (make sure that what you share doesn’t give too much away! You don’t want to ruin the book for others!)
