101 Secrets For Your Twenties by Paul Angone is a book that lists things that are useful for your twenties. Even though it references your twenties, I think it can be used for life. It’s practical as well as witty. It has tips on how to develop yourself personally as well as professionally. I like how it has tips on developing boundaries with those who call themselves your loved ones but often dismiss you as a person. Five of my favorite quotes are as follows:

  1. “Know when your sad season is over and you just need to stand up and dance” pg 130
  2. “Be wary of Reality Checkers” The explanation to this point includes, “They lather you in their own fear and insecurities, and call it sound advice” pg 151
  3. “Don’t go into the wild all by yourself” pg 140
  4. “Being lost might be the exact spot that you will be found” pg 181
  5. “God wants writing partners” pg 143

The last one really stuck out to me because he explained that sometimes we need to just sit in a quiet space and really think about the things we want in life instead of asking God to bless us with this or that. I recommend this book for anyone who is looking for some inspiration or wants to read something that they can relate to.
