02/28/21 – Is Your “But” Too Big


Your “But”


I first read this book in March 2014 and have reviewed it three times since I first read it.

I still find it an easy to read and worthwhile book.

You Are A Badass

By Jen Sincero

In this refreshingly entertaining how-to guide, bestselling author and world-traveling success coach, Jen Sincero, serves up 27 bitesized chapters full of hilariously inspiring stories, sage advice, easy exercises, and the occasional swear word, helping you to: Identify and change the self-sabotaging beliefs and behaviors that stop you from getting what you want.

I found this three-part mini series entertaining and well done..

Sense & Sensibility (BBC 2008)


Let’s Hear It for the Boy

By Deniece Williams


I Was Here

I think many of us want to leave our mark on the world, so that someday someone in the future will know we were here. That is true today and apparently it was true 30,000 years ago, when someone left their handprint on the wall of a cave.


Jane Austen

The only authenticated picture of Jane Austen is this small pencil and watercolor sketch made by her sister, Cassandra, on display in the National Portrait Gallery in London.

Jane Austen (16 December 1775 – 18 July 1817) was an English novelist known primarily for her six major novels, which interpret, critique and comment upon the British landed gentry at the end of the 18th century. Austen’s plots often explore the dependence of women on marriage in the pursuit of favorable social standing and economic security. 

With the publication of Sense and Sensibility (1811), Pride and Prejudice (1813), Mansfield Park (1814) and Emma (1816), she achieved success as a published writer. She wrote two other novels, Northanger Abbey and Persuasion, both published posthumously in 1818.  Her six full-length novels have rarely been out of print, although they were published anonymously and brought her moderate success and little fame during her lifetime.

I’m not sure buying this cake from Ikea was a good idea.




Unfortunately, as you start doing better and better in life (however you wish to define that), some of your friends are going to be envious. They may discourage you or definitely not feel glad for you. You can try to hang on to these “so called” friends, but it is never going to be as it once was. Our success to them is a betrayal.

  1. I think Sense and Sensibility is a fab book, which is exactly why I don’t want to see the 2008 BBC version. I’m afraid it won’t live up to the book. Speaking of awesome films, I streamed Vivarium this weekend. It’s an awesome, artsy, cosmic horror movie, so well done.

  2. A couple of the voting questions asked to check all that apply but it didn’t work and only let me check only one. I LOVE the Sense and Sensibility movie with Emma Thompson, Alan Rickman and many other stars. Also, Pride and Prejudice with Colin Firth is excellent

    • Thank you Melissa for commenting and for mentioning the multiple choice questions not working. I thought that was fixed, but it isn’t. I enjoyed those movies you mentioned very much.
