Five Books That Are Supporting My Sweeter Life

I’m a big reader. I usually have a couple of books going at a time (a novel and a nonfiction book or two). In the nonfiction realm, I am drawn to books with an accessible, friendly style and suggestions for living a more peaceful, generous life. Such books have long supported my recovery from alcoholism and now my recovery from food addiction. Here are a few I’m fond of:

The Rhythm of Life and Perfectly Yourself, both by Matthew Kelly (no relation that I know of). Kelly is a youngish (40s) Australian writer and speaker. He has a genius for phrasing his ideas in a most memorable way and of encouraging us to be our very best selves. His books have had a profound impact on my thinking and my behavior.

Help! Thanks! Wow! by Anne Lamott is a wonderfully unconventional book about prayer. Lamott is known for her quirky, intimate style. This book helped me look at praying in a whole new way.
Essentialism: The Disciplined Pursuit of Less by Greg McKeown has helped me simplify my life and keep more clearly in mind what is most important to me. In our land of overwhelming opportunity and possibility, his ideas are counter-cultural and compelling.

The Life-Changing Magic of Tidying Up by Marie Kondo finally helped me figure out what to toss and what to keep. It all has to do with joy. I’d bought a half-dozen decluttering books and used some of the ideas but always fell back into acquisition and keeping. Kondo’s ideas, if you embrace them, will save you from your stuff.

Courage by Debbie Ford helped me rethink all the reasons why I wanted to be free of food addiction, not just weight loss. Ford’s work is marked by her long-time association with 12-Step programs and with Landmark Education, a personal transformation program I participated in around the turn of the millennium.

Big Magic by Elizabeth Gilbert. I’m not really a Gilbert fan and I resisted reading yet another book on creativity for quite a while, but this book is brilliant and has so much to tell us about creating a life we really want to live.
