Elizabeth Upton has mastered the art of simplicity and peace. She inspires us, in a sentence, to stop and reflect, slow down, take a deep breath, be Present.
In this book, Elizabeth Upton has written a collection of insights that are simple and profound. They lead the reader to stop and ponder, sit and reflect. “Being Real,” “Life Needs Fixing,” and “Bored to Death,” among other chapters, tell us “It is always time to Gather Your Nerve and Live.” She says: “Listen and pause to the life of your mind. Listen and pause to your heart beating in your body with your every step, that offers you deeper understanding of who you are.”
Among Upton’s defining life experiences, she was a nun in a convent for twenty years and also conquered a mysterious disease twice. A deep, abiding compassion gives the author the ability to walk with the reader during our most challenging experiences.
