Peanuts Guide to Life

Once in a while…..ok maybe every 3 weeks (girls you know what I’m talking about!) I get a bit weird. My mood gets funny, I overthink a lot more than usual and the world cannot do anything right.

Yesterday I went to the Bargain Bookshop at Kings Cross to see if I could add to my ever growing collection of books. There wasn’t much about and I was about to leave the shop, when I came across these little babies:

Peanuts Guide to Life by Schulz
Published 2007 by Ravette Publishing

Charlie Brown and friends provide pearls of wisdom; they keep it short and simple:

“I have a philosophy that has been refined in the fire of hardship and struggle…’live and let live’!”Lucy on Life Philosophy; Peanuts Guide to Life, Book 1

“In the Book of Life, the answers are not in the back!”Charlie Brown on Life’s Little Quirks; Peanuts Guide to Life, Book 2

“It’s better to live one day as a lion than a dozen years as a sheep”Snoopy on Confidence; Peanuts Guide to Life, Book 3

The books are full of wit and wisdom, some obvious, some funny and some quirky. I found myself smiling as I flipped through the little books. I enjoyed reading the Charlie Brown comic strips and watching the cartoon show when I was younger.

Given the mood I was when browsing for books, I felt like the books had to be bought……and the £1 price tag per book was a bit influential as well!

And just to finish, here a couple of wise nuggets that should apply to everyone:

“No one need ever be ashamed of fingernails made dirty by a hard day’s work”Linus on Effort; Peanuts Guide to Life, Book 3

“Sometimes all we need is a little pampering to help us feel better…..”Linus on Self-Care; Peanuts Guide to Life, Book 3 (I definately need to act on this one!)
