Wisdom is something that comes from my dad, grandfather or grandmother.  Wisdom comes from those who have been lucky enough to live long enough to experience the full spectrum of human experience. They have succeeded and failed, cried and laughed, hated and loved, learned and lost but most of all, these people whom we look to for wisdom have discovered their passion and their voice.

I love to read and find much wisdom and inspiration through the words of others.  One of my favorite apps is GoodReads.  Not only can you follow your friends and keep up with what they are reading and recommending, but you can also find great quotes and links to amazing authors, join reading groups or ask the author, and so much more!

I have had dreams of starting a Stable Yoga Book Club, but finding the time in my schedule for a monthly gathering has always been a challenge.  It’s time for me to try a virtual one. I am currently reading Tiny Beautiful Things by Cheryl Strayed and I would love a recommendation for my next read. Please share your wisdom with me!
