Download and read online Gracious in PDF and EPUB From New York Times bestselling author of Adulting: How to Become a Grown-Up in 468 Easy(ish) Steps Kelly Williams Brown comes a funny, charming guide to modern civility in these--yes, we'll say it--rather uncivil times. Graciousness is practicing the arts of kindness, thoughtfulness, good manners, humanity, and basic decency. As a bonus, it makes your life and even the world (or at least the room you're in) much lovelier. It's not about memorizing every rule of traditional etiquette to a T (though there is so much there to explore!) or spending all your time maintaining a spotless house. It's about approaching the world with compassion, conviction, self-confidence, and whole-heartedness, whether you're at the Met Gala or saying good morning to a convenience store clerk. From chatting easily with anyone to mastering the subtleties of social media etiquette (hint: block early, block often), Brown has talked to gracious women and men all over the country to give you easy ways to embody your own graciousness. Throughout the book, she provides tips on how to deal with the people and circumstances that challenge even the most socially graceful among us, advice on how to practice graciousness in everyday life, and thoughtful discussions on being kind to those around you without ever losing your sense of self. With the wisdom of gracious folk ranging from celebrities to the author's mother-in-law, this book explains the perspective, actions--and, sometimes, inaction--that help us move smoothly and effectively through whatever life tosses at us.

Download and read online I Adulted in PDF and EPUB A whimsically illustrated book containing 100 removable stickers that congratulate supposed grown-ups on a job well done... or at least a job done. Despite official reports, members of Generation X and younger feel completely and totally ill-prepared to deal with anything. They still, as purportedly self-sufficient adults, look toward Baby Boomers and the Greatest Generation and think, How did they do that? So the easiest and best way to find comfort is to look not ahead at uncertainty (or, heaven forbid, around at the chaos currently surrounding them), but to the past to their simpler childhoods. The generation who championed the coloring book-as- relaxation trend grew up in a world in which they spent hours obsessing over, trading, and decorating with stickers. And it is with brightly colored stickers that they will finally find peace of mind. For a little while, at least. Filled with 100 full-color removable stickers that can be used to decorate journals, notebooks, or your lapel to proudly and publicly proclaim life's little victories, I Adulted! is the ideal nostalgic and practical book for anyone who feels a sense of accomplishment by making it through a day without calling their mother for help.

Now, based on her own experience and interviews with hundreds of women, she shares heartfelt stories on issues from career to parents to boyfriends to babies. Yet she also provides practical exercises to enable today’s woman to chart a new direction for her life.
