I just finished the fifth of the Emily Giffin book series, Heart of the Matter, and like the others I couldn’t put it down. The other thing this book has in common with the others are little nuggets that I find interesting, compelling or thought-provoking.

The book series seems to focus on relationships and the ebbs and flows that occur in our lives.

The books are entertaining, easy reads, but still if one can glean little nuggets from fiction stories that can apply in the real world, than a-okay.


I think of how each person in a marriage owes it to the other to find individual happiness, even in a shared life. That this is the only real way to grow together, instead of apart.”

It’s funny how as you get older, you learn how important knowing yourself is. I believe it’s important to find your own happiness, find the person that accepts you for who you are including your individual happiness, and then bring that happiness into the relationship. I appreciate how this book says it eloquently. Something I plan to remember.

I’ve never been afraid to be dorky, laugh at myself, and be silly. It’s one of the things I like the most about myself. I don’t have to be mature or “act my age.” People often forget to be silly, use our imaginations and to just PLAY!

Something I’ll always remember from my childhood… Dr. Seuss.

When I was in Orlando this summer, I took a moment to appreciate the great Dr. Seuss area of the park. It brought back so many memories. My grandparents giving my brother and I a Dr. Seuss book to learn to read and enjoy. Loving the rhymes and characters. Even graduating high school, where many of us 18-year-olds got “Oh, The Places You’ll Go” and we believed it. Not even fully comprehending the meaning of that book until much later in our lives.

So don’t forget to play, and have fun, and to not be afraid to just be a kid at heart! Your soul will thank you too.
