Love And Happiness: A Collection Of Personal Reflections and Notes
Publisher : FB Publishing - USA
"Pain is real. And so is loss. Sometimes it’s hard not to let the weight of what we carry–or the memory of what we’ve lost–take over. Many of us know the reality of struggle, and so many people suffer in silence. It’s hard. It’s hard not to give up when we face the repeated disappointments of life. Like some of you, I’ve known loneliness. I’ve known defeat. I’ve fallen many times chasing mirages, and broken many bones making castles in life’s fading sands. Sometimes, all it took was one solid wave to destroy what I had spent years building.
So I decided to give it a voice. All of it: the tears, the pain. And the lessons. The things I saw and learned and gained along my life path needed a voice. I wanted to give back, in hopes of helping myself and others survive. But then it wasn’t just about surviving. I didn’t just want people to survive inside their storms. I wanted people to thrive inside their storms. And so I wrote, as I walked through my own.
The words found in this book became my voice and my letter to the world. They became my deepest attempt to, not just pick myself up, but others along the way. I wrote because, just as we will fall in life, so will we rise. That’s the thing about this world. It never gives us only one kind of path. There is pain. Yes. And loss. And even darkness. But there is also light. There is hope. There is beauty.
And there is also love and happiness."
Book Review by Sara Sherzad (GoodReads Reader)
"Full of wisdom... Not just any wisdom but the sort if you posses you will need nothing else to live right. Absolutely not a one time read and absolutely not one which you could speed read because it is deep and one whom hasn't gone through similar life experiences would hardly understand. I will call it "The Book of Truth"..."
Book Review by Ayo Okubena (GoodReads Reader)
"Beautiful collection of poetry, I will always re-read this because of how amazingly empowering this is especially when going through things in life."
Book Review by Rozaini Haji (GoodReads Reader)
"To truly enjoy this book, find a quiet spot and be by yourself.
Indulge in the book.
Reflect what's in your life and how you react towards the storms in your life.
Most likely you'll find you're focusing on the wrong thing.
When things go wrong, we tend to focus on the bad part but neglecting to focus on the blessings.
The power of gratitude is, whatever you focus on, it will grow.
So, shouldn't we focus on the blessing instead?"
