Note: Bug Bytes are simple snippets, quick thoughts. Thanks for reading.
Last summer, I wrote about some new favorite authors I found quite inspiring. Each time I read a book by Brené Brown, Glennon Doyle, or Abby Wambach, I ended up lining the pages with sticky notes of quotes I want to reread.
I read Brené’s “Daring Greatly” first, then Glennon’s “Carry On, Warrior,” followed up by Abby’s, “Wolfpack.”
Imagine my surprise when I eventually discovered they are all connected.
In reading “Wolfpack,” I learned that Abby is now married to Glennon. In “Carry On, Warrior” Glennon was married—to a man. So I eagerly dived into Glennon’s second memoir, “Love Warrior,” imagining that in it, Glennon would tell the story of falling in love with Abby!
I was wrong. “Love Warrior” is about how Glennon saved her marriage after learning her husband was unfaithful.
So, hmmmm. Is Glennon now working on the next memoir? I really want to read that story of what came next! “Hello? Glennon? Please write that book for me.”
In the meantime, as I wait, I will marvel over this: In checking out the cover of “Wolfpack” again, I see that Brené reviewed Abby’s book and has a quote on the cover. My my. It’s a small world even in the big world.
Here’s one snippet from “Love Warrior” that particularly resonates with me: “I feel like I know how to love with my mind and soul. I love with my mind when I write, read, and think. That’s my intellectual life. I love with my soul when I pray, meditate, care for others. That’s my spiritual life. I’ve created those lives.”
I could have written a similar sentiment myself.
