Last night, we started our “book club”.
Jen, Jess, Savi and I are reading The Best Yes together. We are only a few chapters in, but already I can tell that this book is going to help me (us) immensely. I am a “yes” girl. I have the “disease to please”. So thankful for Lysa TerKeurst for writing this book, because not only does it speak to me, but I truly believe it speaks to a majority of women out there.
We met at our favorite local coffee shop, got amazing coffee and tea, and started talking. We closed the place down, which resulted in some leftover pastries from the case, too. SCORE.
It was only two hours, but it seriously felt like we’d just invested a full day into ourselves and our friendship. I left feeling so refreshed and thankful for the relationships in my life: ones that challenge me and inspire me to do better, each and every day.
I strongly encourage those of you reading to connect with your best gals, pick a book, read it together, and meet up once a week to discuss what you got from it. Don’t check your phone, or talk about what happened with your kiddos that day, or what you thought of last night’s episode of your favorite show. Stay focused, stay purposeful. It pays off in ways you never expected.
