1. Grab the nearest book. (Don't you dare dig for that "cool" or "intellectual" book in your closet! I know you were thinking about it! Just pick up whatever is closest.)

This is from one of my all-time favorite books, Till We Have Faces by CS Lewis. It's a retelling of the Psyche-Eros myth, from the evil stepsister's perspective. It breaks my heart every time, and I love it well. Steve and I recently started reading it aloud to one another.
