As New condition
37 Days To Wake Up, Be Mindful, And Live Intentionally
In October 2003, Patti Digh's stepfather was diagnosed with lung cancer. He died 37 days later.
The timeframe made an impression on her. What emerged was a commitment to ask herself every morning: What would I be doing today if I had only 37 days left to live?
The answers changed her life and led to this new kind of book. Part meditation, part how-to guide, part memoir, Life is a Verb is all heart.
Within these pages - enhanced by original artwork and wide, inviting margins ready to be written in - Digh identifies six core practices to jump-start a meaningful life: Say Yes, Trust Yourself, Slow Down, Be Generous, Speak Up, and Love More.
Within this framework, she supplies 37 edgy, funny, and literary life stories, each followed by a "do it now" 10-minute exercise as well as a practice to try for 37 days-and perhaps the rest of your life.
