Chicken Soup for the Soul books have been around for as long as I can remember. Each edition contains 101 stories that are frequently inspirational in nature and each book has its own theme. One of the newest editions, Chicken Soup for the Soul: Find your Happiness, focuses on encouraging the reader to find their purpose, passion, and joy. Through the stories, you will learn how to use positive thinking to change your attitude, find the good in every day and count your blessings, listen to your heart and pursue your true passions, and more.
The book is organized into the following chapters:
Counting my blessings
Back to Basics
Finding My Passion
The Joy of Giving
Finding My Purpose
Making the Best of It
Jumping Off the Hamster Wheel
Review: I am never disappointed with these books. This book was truly inspirational. I have had a lot of family crises in my life recently and it is very easily to slip into a negative attitude. However, when you read about someone who is dying from cancer and how she has reframed her thinking in order to live life to the fullest, it helps you put life into perspective. They help remind you that you are not alone in dealing with life's struggles and everyone has their crosses to bear.
The stories are short enough that you can read one here and there as a "pick me up" or you can read as long as you wish. The stories are varied enough that you are certain to find a few that are very similar to your current life situations. This is definitely a god read for the New Year and makes me want to consider having a New Year's resolution of just being happier.
