Gracious

From New York Times bestselling author of Adulting How to Become a Grown Up in 468 Easyish Steps Kelly Williams Brown comes a funny charming guide to modern civility in these yes we'll say it rather uncivil timesGraciousness 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 lovelierIt’s not about memorizing every rule of traditional etiuette to a T though there is so much the Maybe I'm revealing that I haven't learned how to be gracious But at least I'm not engaging in some fancy BSing I don't think this was a terrible book It just was too disjointed for me and sometimes it was hard to tell where one set of principleschecklists stopped and another began There were also lots of footnotes and separate sections and uotes that kept distracting me from reading because I must read all words on the page even if it reuires me to stop in the middle of a sentence because I worry I will forget to read that one extra little thing I came away with the idea that graciousness sometimes can be either not sticking up for yourself taking an easy way out BSing or some combination of the three Maybe that's the way things should be but I feel like I'm always trying to escape reverting to that kind of behavior But I will say there were some gems in there Like thinking in terms of us and moving towards something beneficial for both parties involved Or ignoring things people are saying or doing that just aren't helping you Maybe these seem like obvious pieces of advice but they fit in the book well and provided me with something to think a little deeply on
