What I Learned - Sense & Sensibility by Joanna Trollope
This Joanna Trollope book is part of The Austen Project where 6 best selling authors retell Austen's classics for the modern day, and it is brilliantly done!
What I Learned:
If quite often said that I would rather be on my own than with someone who wasn't sure if they wanted to be with me or not...and if Austen and Trollope agree then really who am I to argue?
Always - go out and make a start - take that first step. What is there to lose?
I am rubbish at asking for help, always feel like a bit of a failure, so this is a good one to try and remember.
If only she hadn't been interrupted! This is a great line. Always rely on you to make you happy, and anything over and above that is just a happy bonus! Never put your happiness in someone else's hands.
Another great line, and great because it is so true. Be the person you want to be around! It's a game changer!
How cynical is this? I would like to think this isn't true all of the time, and less true in personal relationships than professional ones. I always remember someone telling me that if you make yourself indispensable then you can never move up and that really struck a chord with me!
The older I get the more I have come to realise that this is just life, but it's how you deal with it that counts.
