The Comfort Book by Matt Haig offers just that–comfort.
Opening it at random this morning before returning it to the library, I found these words as a reminder of how to start and spend my day:
“A Thing I Discovered Recently”
“I love stillness. Slowness. When nothing is happening. The blueness of the sky. Inhaling clean air. Birdsong over traffic. Lone footsteps. Spring flowers blooming with defiance. I used to think the quiet patches felt dead. Now they feel more alive. Like leaning over and listening to the earth’s heartbeat.”
