Falling Forward: A Man's Memoir of Divorce (Kindle Single)

He should have seen it coming: the lace underwear dangling from the clothes rack, the frequent late nights at work, the svelte green dress she wore to hang out with friends. When Hollywood screenwriter Chris Easterly’s wife came clean about her affair, his mind went blank. And so began the long, unimaginably difficult reconstruction of his life after marriage. Relentlessly honest and profoundly moving, ‘Falling Forward’ explores the emotional journey of one man’s divorce, from his wife’s affair to the seemingly bottomless grief that followed to his eventual healing and the realization that he would survive.”

Sometimes the hardest person to forgive is the one in the mirror reflecting back at you. Matthew London can attest to this difficult truth.

Everybody loves Katie. With her bubbly personality, her beauty, her never-ending supply of care and support for her patients and friends, and her huge sense of fun, there’s very little to dislike. Yes, she’s a bit scatty, she tends not to sweat the small stuff (like an engine light on her dashboard – that is until her Mini won’t actually start any more), and she can talk the hind legs off a donkey, but none of that stops most people from thinking she’s pretty damn adorable.
Well, most people, other than Sam, that is.

Sam is anything but bubbly. His surly demeanour is the complete opposite of Katie’s, and, over the six years that she’s known him one thing has become very clear: Sam cannot stand her. The fact that he makes her nervous doesn’t help. Around Sam her verbal diarrhoea out of control, the snort that she tries to hold in when she laughs refuses to be suppressed, and her clumsiness assumes clown-like proportions.

How to Be an Imperfectionist: The New Way to Self-Acceptance, Fearless Living, and Freedom from Perfectionism

Imperfectionists Accomplish More with Less Stress

I remember when I aimed for perfect workouts: 30 minutes was the minimum.
I was in lousy shape.

I remember when I aimed for perfect dating: it couldn’t be awkward, forced, or uncertain.
I didn’t talk to women of interest.

I remember when I aimed for perfect writing: I wanted 1,000+ words of quality material per day.
I played video games instead.

I carefully avoided mistakes, endlessly ruminated about what I didn’t do, and what I did do wasn’t enough.

Then, I became an imperfectionist.

Everything changed. I had fun stories to tell, like the lesbian pizza incident and the most nervous “Hi” ever spoken by a human being. I learned more. I laughed more. I lived more.
