Chicken Soup for the Soul: Find Your Happiness
101 Stories about Finding Your Purpose, Passion and Joy
From finding your purpose and counting your blessings to discovering the joy of giving and pursuing your passion, the 101 stories in Chicken Soup for the Soul : Find Your Happiness explore the ways people from all walks of life looked within themselves and discovered that happiness was there for the taking.
Deborah Norville points out in her foreword: “Research has found being happy adds about nine years to your life!” Her recipe for happiness includes counting your blessings, pursuing your passions, learning, finding meaning in your activities and using quiet times to reflect and enjoy all the little things in life. “After you read these stories, you’ll be much better equipped to find the path - and the destination – that’s right for you.”
Readers will learn the joy of giving with Shannon Anderson, her daughters and first-grade students, in “A Deed a Day,” as they work to do something unexpected each day for someone else. They’ll get advice from Michelle Smyth – who had to quit her job and take care of her autistic son. And, readers will see they can leave a joyless job as Linda Allen did when she took a detour to Bolivia that changed her career path.
Chicken Soup for the Soul’s focus on inspiration and hope reminds readers that they can find their own happiness. Release date is October 25, 2011. Available at Amazon.com, BarnesandNoble.com and chickensoupforthesoul.com.
