When too many questions arise in my life, I always run into the world of books.
The old habit of reading traditional books was replaced by Audible. Whether I'm going for a walk, taking a bus, or exercising, I can always listen and learn something new. I like the idea I once heard, that a person should hear this world more because we have two ears, and only one mouth. And I will add another 2/2/2 – see more, hug more, and walk it out or Solvitur Ambulando more.
I'm currently reading an insights book “Destination Fabulous” by fashion director Anna Murphy about a woman and her age filled with fashion. I discovered it on stylist Linda Rodin's Instagram, in one of the posts. This book makes you love yourself and naturally accept the change that is happening in each of us. I think in the coming posts I'll share the thoughts that stuck with me.
As for the world of books, I'll also share a few more pearls that just formed me and my life as a designer. They're right next to my bed or on my phone. I bought some repeatedly while living in Italy, Malaysia, and China when I visited the world bookstores, where I could easily wander for a few hours.
Mireille Guiliano "French Women Don't Get Fat: The Secret of Eating for Pleasure"
Yes, I learned how to eat, and not only that.
When M proposed... The moment the champagne cork exploded, my name glowed up like a sign from God. I knew, that saying YES was the right choice. Veuve Clicquot Orange Label – my favorite champagne, that came into my life through Mireille Guiliano (former President and CEO of Clicquot, Inc. (LVMH)) books, which I read all. They helped me become who I am today.
Rebecca Pacheco "Do Your Om Thing“
Colleen Saidman Yee "Yoga for Life: A Journey to Inner Peace and Freedom“
Yes, I learned how to know my female body. I have been looking for a form of exercise suitable for me for a long time. I'm still looking, but these books have shown me the right direction.
Stephen King "On Writing"
Anne Lamott "Bird by Bird"
Yes, I learned how to write. In Beijing's The Bookworm space. I attended writers' evenings and seminars.
Chris Hadfield book "An Astronaut's Guide to Life on Earth: What Going to Space Taught Me About Ingenuity, Determination, and Being Prepared for Anything"
Yes, I'm still learning how to learn like astronauts 24/7, and when it's very difficult, to look at my problems from outer space.
Kenya Hara "Designing Design"
Karim Rashid "Design Your Self: Rethinking the Way You Live, Love, Work, and Play"
I always say YES to DESIGN. I attended Kenya’s seminar while living in Beijing and I met this author live. I love Karim Rashid.
These books are in every possible format, worth being close to you and some of their pages, I SWEAR, you just want to kiss. They give a lot of answers to life's questions that neither yourself nor the people around you can answer.
Agne Vei "Touching Mars"
Yes, I have written an e-book myself! I believe it also has pages that you would like to kiss.
