Find the Good: Unexpected Life Lessons from a Small-Town Obituary Writer by Heather Lende
2015 | ISBN: 1616201673 | English | 176 pages | EPUB,PDF | 1,8 MB
As the obituary writer in a spectacularly beautiful but often dangerous spit of land in Alaska, Heather Lende knows something about last words and lives well lived. Now shes distilled what shes learned about how to live a more exhilarating and meaningful life into three words: find the good. Its that simple-and that hard.
Quirky and profound, individual and universal, Find the Good offers up short chapters that help us unlearn the habit-and it is a habit-of seeing only the negatives. Lende reminds us that we can choose to see any event-starting a new job or being laid off from an old one, getting married or getting divorced-as an opportunity to find the good. As she says, œWe are all writing our own obituary every day by how we live. The best news is that theres still time for additions and revisions before it goes to press.
Ever since Algonquin published her first book, the New York Times bestseller If You Lived Here, Id Know Your Name, Heather Lende has been praised for her storytelling talent and her plainspoken wisdom. The Los Angeles Times called her œpart Annie Dillard, part Anne Lamott, and that comparison has never been more apt as she gives us a fresh, positive perspective from which to view our relationships, our obligations, our priorities, our community, and our world.
An antidote to the cynicism and self-centeredness that we are bombarded with every day in the news, in our politics, and even at times in ourselves, Find the Good helps us rediscover whats right with the world.
