I read the book not because I aspire to be a craftactivist In fact I have found myself mostly declining the choice to commit to any cause despite the many desperate changes for a better world to fight for I suppose I'm uite a nihilist I am however curious of the viewpoints and inner working of activists and what make them tick to actually take action and fight for something That's intriguing But activists tend to bear the stigma of being incessantly angry self righteous judgemental and mostly reflective than inflective of the values they wish to see implemented And then comes Sarah CorbettShe is charming in writing I only say this because I don't know how she is in personI also admire the family she was born intoAlthough the book mainly talks about the gentle ways of making rippling changes in the world in no matter how small the ways some of the insights are also helpful for making changes in one's own life first if one's so inclined to change the world later I particularly like the part that reminds us to be mindful of a few things before fighting for something Some times we chase things we thought was the purpose of our life without even realising the ACTUAL reasons why we are chasing them in the first place to then get lost in a hunt of blurry objectives She is also very self aware that makes her writing effectively sympatheticOverall it's a warm and fuzzy read Made me feel like wanting to find something to care enough about to fight for But then again it's always for some other day that hasn't arrived
