3 weekends ago I totally blundered my prepared speech at my wedding. It was a very emotional day (I cried like a baby). Alas, there are no do overs, unless you are George Costanza (Jerk Face). For those of you who don’t get the reference, I feel bad for you Son.
Any-who, back to the wedding speech. I planned to talk about being the average of the people whom I surround myself. To ask my guests to consider this for themselves. Not only this, to consider their daily endeavours. I would have encouraged my guests to read the book Necessary Endings by Henry Cloud. “Removing whatever it is in our business or life whose reach is unwanted or superfluous,” the author writes. He shares an analogy of a rose bush. To have the most beautiful roses you must ration the resources of the plant, and in which buds those resources are allocated. You are the rose bush, and the gardener.
(I had a few other things to say too!)
Only I would give such a ridiculous speech, haha!

If I missed anyone, I am sorry. The volume of requests, and then wading through said requests AND digging through the shout outs is madness!! Y’all accomplish a lot in 1 month!

Each month I try to bring you my favorite articles, books and casts. I am a total information glutton. More inputs than I could possibly action in my lifetime. I don’t recommend this, but it sure makes recommending good reading/listening easy!
I am committed to devouring 2-4 books each month, and reporting back on which made an impact. I will also list books that are absolute essentials. Here’s a couple I recently picked up that I highly recommend:
