I'm Not Suffering From Insanity. . .I'm Enjoying Every Minute of It! by Karen Scalf Linamen
Linamen delves into some of life's most serious problems but approaches them in such a lighthearted way that the burdens seem lighter and easier to bear. What I appreciate most is her honesty and the forthright manner in which she discusses her troubles in life. While reading this book, I saw myself in many of the situations and was able to relate to the topic at hand. Not only that, but I found great comfort in knowing that I wasn't the only one to struggle with such things as depression, discouragement and disorganization. Her personal revelations made me feel as if we were kindred spirits and even close friends, even though we've never even met.
The only negative thing I have to say about this book is that I just couldn't put it down. The chapters were an ideal length for stopping and starting, but once I began, I just didn't want to stop. I can't tell you how many times I said, "Just one more chapter" and then proceeded to read three or four more chapters without even realizing it. It was like a conversation that I didn't want to end, and now that it has, I feel like I've lost a friend. Still, I'm thankful for the lessons that I can take with me and reflect upon in my spiritual journey.
Is your life spinning out of control? Do you struggle to remember if you're coming or going? Does everyday feel like a balancing act of rules and responsibilities? If so, you'll find good company and solid counsel in the pages of I'm Not Suffering From Insanity. . .I'm Enjoying Every Minute of It!
