I had an ARC of this book because I was on the launch team, so I read it months ago (and reviewed it). This week when I finished my previous audio book and had run out of podcasts in my feed I was interested in (so many are released on Tuesdays and I finish them by end of the day on Thursday), I thought “Let’s listen to Jon.”
I’m so glad I did too – the audiobook is short, but inspiring. I need more of this kind of content in my life – stop overthinking things. Start telling yourself a different soundtrack for your life. When I thought I’d broken my new house over the weekend (I sort of did, sort of didn’t – it was touch and go for a while if we’re being honest), I kept telling myself “See, what a terrible idea. Single women shouldn’t own houses alone, you were supposed to wait for a man to come along. Why’d you even sell your townhouse?”
Then I thought, “Katie, why are you talking to yourself like that?” After talking to a friend, they also said, “I wouldn’t have known to do any of that while replacing a thermostat. You know now – just call them and ask them to fix it.”
So I did – and Alvo came and he fixed it – and set up my new thermostat properly – which was different than the instructions because I have a heat pump, which I’m still not yet sure what that really is – but it’s different than my old house – so anyway – I started telling myself “You made a mistake. This is the first time you’ve ever done this. It’s okay.”
As I told Riley over and over last year, “You’re just learning, and when you’re learning, it’s supposed to be a little hard or you wouldn’t be learning new things.”
So back to the book – if you haven’t gotten this yet, what are you waiting for? I’ve got two on my shelf, you can come borrow one for the price of listening to me give you a tour of my new home!
