Tallulah's Nutcracker | Marilyn Singer
post image
Pickpick

Tallulah is chosen to be a mouse in a “real” Nutcracker production. So proud, with big dreams, she practices very hard, making personal sacrifices to be the *best*. On the night of the performance, Tallulah learns not everything goes as planned (or hoped), but a true dancer carries on.

Mehso-so

This book took me quite a while to finish, some sections I found really good, but others not so much. The author seems to be saying how people all suck now because we don't have morals like people did in the past or something I really don't remember because this book was really boring to me. The section on love was good though.

This wasn‘t what I‘d expected but ended up being a very worthwhile read. The type of book that if you‘re willing to be honest and introspective with yourself, will have you taking a hard look at your own moral compass and whether you‘ve cultivated eulogy virtues, resumé virtues, or both in your life. While many of the historical figures covered were people of faith and their beliefs helped form their characters, this isn‘t a religious book.

booklahoma I used to be a great cultivator of resume skills. Then a friend of mine (a life coach) asked me how I would like to be remembered when I passed away. To my surprise I just wanted to be remembered as a good person who was fun, not as a corporate bigwig. Still working on it, but at least I had the good sense to quit my job and abandon corporate life. 😀 10mo

Some perversity in our nature leads us to put lower loves above higher ones. We all love and desire a multitude of things: friendship, family, popularity, country, money, and so on.

But we often put our loves out of order.

Among the privileged, especially the privileged young, you see people who have been raised to be approval-seeking machines.

We live in a society that places great emphasis on personal happiness, defined as not being frustrated in the realization of your wants.

The moderate can only hope to achieve a balance that is consistent with the needs of the moment.

The median narcissism score has risen 30 percent in the last two decades.

By 2007, 51 percent of young people reported that being famous was one of their top personal goals.

ReadingRover Welcome! I‘m an audio junkie! Let me know what kind of books you like and I‘m sure I can suggest a few. I listen to at least 4+ a week. James Patterson‘s books are super quick reads. Also this is probably the funniest audio I‘ve every listened to 13mo
BillyH @ReadingRover I think I‘ll listen to that soon! I love bio/memoirs but I mostly listen to nonfiction in the science/psychology/philosophy areas. I also like sci-fi and fantasy :) 13mo
ReadingRover @BillyH I think you‘ll enjoy it. She also talks about her anxiety and depression along with growing up and her life in general. It‘s an overall solid book. 13mo

Sin is not some demonic thing. It‘s just our perverse tendency to fuck things up.

I spent some time reading this book, not because it was slow or dull, but because there was depth to it and I found a lot to think about in each page. I had never heard of the author before, and will be picking up her other book now. Linking humility and our busy frantic lives was a revelation and I‘ll return to this book. ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️
