I just realized that I’ve been flooding this blog with too much—how do they call them these days?—long reads. Shift time, and while Butones is taking her afternoon nap in Baguio,I stumbled on a site called notsalmon.com, the website of Karen Salmansohn who offers help to those who wouldn't be caught dead browsing through a site for self-help.
She describes her “work” as “to offer easy-to-absorb insights and advice to help you bloom into your happiest, most loved, highest potential self – and have fun in the process – because I use playful analogies, feisty humor, and stylish graphics to distill big ideas (from the latest scientific studies to ancient wisdom) into short, easily-digestible, life-changing tips. Basically, because my books and programs are created to be fun, you’ll absorb methodologies for creating a happier more successful life with total ease – including ideas from: Aristotle, Martin Seligman, Viktor Frankl, Bertrand Russel, Jung, Freud, biology, Buddhism, cognitive therapy, Darwinism, Neuro Linquistic Programming, neuroscience, positive psychology, sociology, quantum physics, western philosophy, Zen of Bazooka Joe – and then some.”
Zen of Bazooka Joe, now THAT this grandma likes. Here are samples from that website’s freebies, welcome reminders of what Lent is about and how it ends with Easter which, to this believer, is better than Christmas.
