I love love lovvvveee reading! It is one of the many things I enjoy doing when I have time to myself. Right now I am currently reading 2 books! I’ll tell you all about each book!
I’ll start with ‘Yes Please’ by Amy Poehler. I’m currently on the third chapter of this book and I have never been able to relate to any book until I started to read this. This book was placed in Chapters at the ‘Humour’ section. Although the book can get some giggles out of you, I think it would also be well fit for the ‘Self-help’ section. Your experience with this book maybe different but the greatest impression she has left me are the ones where she is demonstrating how to be a good person. Now, I don’t want to spoil this book for anyone by going into depth but it definitely has lots of life tips! Every time I read, I cant help but laugh. Amy shares a lot of personal stories, she’s hilarious and very wise. I strongly recommend purchasing this book!
The second book I am reading is ‘How to win friends and influence people’ by Dale Carnegie. A very very famous book! As the cover says “The only book you need to lead you to success” which has been helpful to me so far. Again, I wouldn’t want to spoil this book for anyone. I have taken in so much from this book and constantly use it in my everyday life! The main implement of this book is that if you want to have friends and be successful, you should be nice not mean. It sounds soo obvious and I thought I was doing it, but now I realize all the mean things that I’ve done and still do to people when I don’t get along with them. As I’ve read this book (and I’ll work hard to do this from now on) I’ve tried to think more about the other person’s perspective when I disagree with them and it helps so much. I’ve already noticed a change in the way I interact with people. I keep this book with me everywhere I go, and I read the chapters multiple time before going onto the next.This is such an empowering book, I recommend this book for EVERYONE.
Aside from the reviews on these books I’ll be talking about what I wish to do for ‘Free The Children’ to fund raise! I am currently searching for a place here in Calgary that will be willing to let me rent a hall for free. If and when I do find a hall that is willing to help me out, I will start planning either a dance or a dinner gala for ‘Free The Children’. The event would have an entrance fee, depending on the event I will decide on the entrance fee. I’ve also wanted to host another event to support my platform charity ‘Wounded Warriors CA’. I’ll keep searching for a hall and have an update on that during this month or so.
Lastly, I have made a new instagram apart from my main account. @msteenageeastcalgary follow me as I will be posting pictures from events I’ll be attending, more pictures from the provincial pageant, and selfies (;
This blog has been quite short, and not as exciting as I hoped but I wish you all an amazing week! Remember to pop back onto my website every Sunday at 8:15 to see my newest post!
Sending lots of love and happiness, Trish.
