You'll also learn Wise's secrets to enjoying the "everyday arts"--such as keeping home, keeping in touch, and creating memories.
Wise writes, "Sometimes we don't even realize our hearts are broken. We are fragile creatures, really. A heart has to search to set itself aright just about every moment. That is, unless there is an equilibrium we choose. A balancing point, a weight transfer where things even out and we decide to call life in all of its gutsandglory: Enough. What I have is enough. Life is tenuous and precious. I say that with certainty. And I say with even more certainty: that is why I celebrate the every day."
From cultivating your inner self to creating community and the perfect homemade latte, Happy Pretty Messy inspires a life that flourishes with charm, color, caffeine and, most importantly, courage. Finding value in these things might be the most important thing you do, so grab this book and dig in today.
