Hand Wash Cold

  • May 31, 2010
Hand Wash Cold is completely unlike any other spirituality/self help book I've ever read. These days, most of these books look to manifesting abundance or finding your life purpose. In both cases, bigger, better, and more seem to be the measuring sticks: more money, a bigger house, a successful business, a better relationship, etc.

Hand Wash Cold looks to the everyday. Finding peace in whatever your life happens to be right now. No judgments. Being mindful while you undertake the daily chores. Making real connections in the life you have.

For some reason, we just don't see the value in the ordinary. After all, it's not glamorous to do the dishes. There's no money in picking up your husband's dirty socks. Yes, these things need to be done but most of us would prefer that someone else do it. But at what cost?

What did you think of this review?

Fun to Read
