Remove Your Inner Thorn Untethered Soul Book Club Pt. 3
Our Untethered Soul book club continues with part 3: Remove Your Inner Thorn.
Those of you who follow me on twitter and facebook know I'm going through book edits and a kitchen renovation and it is for this reason that this blog post will be lighter than the last two. So this week on the blog I am sharing my favorite quotes from this section.
Please watch this week's video (which discusses this all in depth) for the full discussion. Thank you for all of your comments and insight. I know this topic isn't what we typically discuss here on the Daily Connoisseur but as connoisseurs of life we must commit ourselves to being beautiful from the inside out :)

Favorite quotes on removing your inner thorn:
Location 1271 “You are either trying to stop suffering, controlling your environment to avoid suffering, or worrying about suffering in the future”.
Location 1288 “You don’t have to constantly be mulling over what you said or what this person thinks of you. What kind of life are you going to have if you worry about these things all the time? Inner sensitivity is a symptom of non- well-being. It’s the same as when the body sends pain or displays other symptoms when it’s not well. “
“Pain is not bad; it’s how the body talks to you. When you overeat, you get a stomachache. When you do something that puts too much stress on your arm, it starts to hurt. The body is communicating through its universal language: pain. Your psyche is communicating through its universal language: fear. Self-consciousness, jealousy, insecurity, anxiety- they are all fear.”
Location 1722 “So there are two ways you can live: you can devote your life to staying in your comfort zone, or you can work on your freedom”. YES!! (that was my note when reading this quote).
Location 1341 “You can wake up in the morning, look forward to the day, and not worry about what will happen. Your daily life can be like a vacation. Work can be fun; family can be fun; you can just enjoy all of it. That does not mean you don’t do your best; you just have fun doing your best. Then, at night when you go to sleep, you let it all go.”
As always, I would love to know what you think about all of this. I try to respond to every comment, so please share your experience below!
The kitchen renovation is going well but all is very hectic. I will do a blog about it when it's finished.
Also book edits are going really well. Book 2 is going to be fabulous and I just know you're going to love it.
See you next week for the final installment of the Untethered Soul book club: The Problem of the Day.
