Greenlights by Matthew McConaughey is a good weekend book to peruse. It's not a straightforward memoir. It's more a musings on life. He's been journaling for over thirty years and he's fifty now. And he's still asking questions - how to be a better man? How to have less stress? How to have fun? How to hurt people less? How to have meaning in life? How to be more me? (cover blurb)
He embraces solitude and talks about some trips to the far reaches of the world to explore and dig deeper into his own zen. He reflects on his family, the good and the bad, and the love.
Matthew McConaughey hopes you enjoy this book: It's a love letter. To life.
It's also a guide to catching more greenlights - and to realizing that the yellows and reds eventually turn green, too. By design and on purpose... (cover blurb)
I really enjoyed this memoir and his voice shines through. He's a man with a great sense of humor - about life and himself. He also takes living seriously. I do think as you read this, it makes one reflect and contemplate ones own life, and be aware of the red, yellow, and green lights encountered on this crazy journey.
Happy Friday and weekend. Stay safe
