Tiny Book Holds Message of Hope

Do you have a favorite book that you read again and again?

The Four Agreements, by Don Miguel Ruiz, is a tiny book that packs a powerful message. Like walking a long-distance trek, it reminds me what is important and helps chase anxiety away.

My mantra mirrors Ruiz’ words of wisdom. This is what I repeat:

“Speak impeccably. Don’t take things personally. Never assume. Always do your best.”

In a nut shell, those are the four agreements. I have just read the book again, reading some passages over and over as I go. As usual, I have found peace in Ruiz’ message.

I would love to hear how the book affects you. Also, please share if there is a book you read again and again.
