The Little Book of Big Knowing Review
In line with my quest to become more self-aware and gain a better understanding of how to control my emotions, I've joined WOW! Women on Writing's book tour for a cute little hardback called The Little Book of Big Knowing by Michele Sammons. The tag line for this book is "Tiny bursts of insight to wake up your soul."
I checked out this book because I have re-entered the practice of journaling and thought it would be a good resource for journaling topics, should I get stumped. What I found was this ended up being the perfect read before my gratefulness practice. In the evening, I would sit with this book and flip through to random pages, as the introduction suggests. I would skip past whatever didn't sit with me that evening, and focus on the pieces that brought some calm to my spirit. After a few minutes, I'd open my gratitude journal and begin my lists, my body now primed to the spirit of the task.
The key to this book and others that are written for quotes and inspiration, is to take what speaks to you, and be careful with context. Though deep interpretation is possible, the wording of these snippets is simple and open to massively different interpretations. The same quote that engaged you yesterday may irritate you today because the meaning has shifted in your own perspective.
Overall, this is an adorable book filled with glitter. Whether you like glitter or not is up to you. For me, I find glitter has its place, and am happy to have this beautiful blue spine on my bookshelf.
