Therapy that you pay out of pocket - no health insurance required - no forms to fill out. Most of the time it is guilt free and there are no intrusive questions about your past and no prescriptions needed. Thrifting naturally boosts the serotonin in your brain when that happy feeling triggers the satisfaction feeling of finding the perfect treasure. It can however trudge up childhood memories that you'd like to forget about but most of the time it recalls the good memories like this book did for me when I found it this week for a dollar.
I was given a copy of this book in my early twenties from some new found friends. I took to it instantly and I have read it several times. It is Taoism brought to the western world that is easily understood and can be applied to our everyday life told through the stories of Winnie-the-Pooh (not Disney's version.) Who better than Pooh to teach us Taoism through his stories of living simple, kindly and authentically. In each new season of my life I ponder the question of "Who Am I?" the older I get the easier the answer comes - this book adds insight to getting that answer. It brings peace to me and is a gentle reminder to trust my inner nature. I gave my copy away some years back - I am glad to have a copy again.
