I once read a quote in some magazine — I believe Seventeen, when I was young enough to be reading that — that I found both comforting and freaky. It was a profile on actress Christina Ricci where she talked about how she finds solace in the fact that nothing is (or has to be) permanent. Hard times eventually lessen or pass. If you get married and it’s not making you happy, you can get divorced. Basically, things will change, or you can change them.
Reading this automatically made my brain go to the worried side of things — “That means the good things don’t last forever, either!” — but I also remember being glad that that meant the bad things don’t, either.
Marie Forleo’s sentiment in her book Everything is Figureoutable reminds me of this. There’s a solution, a change, for EVERYTHING. Does that mean that the solution always feels like supreme happiness? Not necessarily. But it is there. You can lift yourself out of a struggle or you can release an escape hatch. Either way, there’s a way you can figure things out, and that forward action puts you in better place.
With this in mind, we’re taking some forward action in Boho Berry that led Kara and I to decide to make this the last month of the Boho Berry Book Club.
It’s bittersweet for sure! We debated whether to do some new things in the club or whether our energy might be better used in different ways, and ultimately, we decided to move on and make space for the new.
The spirit of the book club has always been about digging into ways to make life feel good and taking a light-hearted approach toward new concepts, thinking in different ways and making change, and next year, we’re looking forward to upholding those ideals — just in a different form.
In 2020, you can look forward to more Boho Berry blog posts and videos focused on feeling good and trying new things! We’re really excited about our ideas and we think you’re really going to enjoy them.
So, like my unlikely sage Christina Ricci and this month’s final author Marie Forleo say, nothing is permanent and everything is figureoutable, and we’re saying goodbye to the Boho Berry Book Club. We thank you SO much for being a part of it!
We’ll still be open for conversation in the club this month, so if you’d like full instructions on how the Boho Berry Book Club works and how to join, head here.
