Buy Yourself the F*cking Lilies

I’m midway through Tara Schuster’s book, Buy Yourself the Fucking Lilies. It’s a memoir/self help book. After drunk dialing her therapist in the middle of the night without remembering, Tara sets off on a journey to change her ways. Aside from myself being past the dating world of my youth, it’s relatable, sometimes humorous and helpful.
She does start doing all the right things and it works: eating right, exercising, meditating, journaling and keeping a gratitude list.
From the advice of a friend, she reads The Artist’s Way and as suggested in the book, she begins writing morning pages. Three pages (about 20 minutes) of writing before you do anything else.
Tara recommends Tara Brach’s  meditations. She commits to 30 days of a gratitude journal. She suggest fake it til you make if you’re not feeling it!
May you glean something helpful from her suggestions.
Maybe buy yourself the lilies. I have dear friend who buys herself one white lily regularly just because it makes her happy! 😉

Thanks for reading.
