If You’re Happy And You Know It

IMG_0458

For some reason happiness does not come easy for me.  For some reason I just focus on negative aspects of my life rather than positive ones.  The Instant Happy Journal has changed that for me slowly but surely.

Every night I do a journal entry and it helps me narrow in on what went well for the day.  I wake up positive and happy.  Each day has a different exercise. It could be to write a list, answer a question, or reflect on a quote.  I REALLY enjoy this journal and I’m not a writer at all.

If you are looking for a little pick me up or something to refocus your mentality to happiness, you should try this journal. They would make really great gifts for the holidays as well!

“I received this book from the Blogging for Books program in exchange for this review.”

God For The Rest Of Us

I had the opportunity to review God For The Rest Of Us by Vince Antonucci.

God For The Rest Of Us is a book for people, who in my mind, are not overtly religious.  The author is a pastor who helps people on the Las Vegas strip.  The book relays his many accounts with atheists, druggies, skeptics, and sinners.  It’s a very uplifting book that shows how God really is for every single person.  No matter your past, God is there for you.

Thresholds

I had the opportunity to review Thresholds by Sherre Hirsch.  It is a book on how to thrive through life’s transitions to live fearlessly and regret-free.

I found this book to be very uplifting. She really gives you some real life ways to apply the methods. They are nothing too crazy or out there, just methods you forgot about it. I liked that she said there is “no magic pill” for happiness. Some people believe if they’re not always in a great mood, they should go see a doctor and get medicated. Turning to prayer and your inner peace is much better for the body.  I found the book to be a fast read and very enjoyable. Living with no regrets isn’t easy, but much more manageable through the ways of this book.
