Hi, my name is Cindy and I'm a self-help addict. I am one of those

people who, when she has a problem, prays for guidance on her way to

the bookstore. Which is when a great new title pops out from some

obscure shelf and I am immediately attracted to it, sure it will save

my life. Most of the time, I'm right.

A character in a novel I recently read said that the thing with

self-help books is that if they really helped, why would you need to

buy more than one?

The answer is that some of us need to over learn the material. Over

learning is a term I learned way back in my college days, when I was

studying to be an English teacher. It's a study technique, one of a

variety of ways to learn. Basically, you learn the same lesson again

and again, just in new ways, with new words.

Marianne Williamson, a spiritual teacher I have admired since she

wrote Return to Love back in the 1992, speaking about spiritual

truth, says something like "We all know this stuff. But friends are there to

remind us when we forget." Friends, and, I would add, new self-help books.

In this blog, I'll be cross-posting the best of the essays on health,

fitness, and spirit that I write for "In The Pink" one of several

blogs on my website at [Link Removed].
