Stay Positive and Find Your Happiness with Chicken Soup for the Soul - Review & Giveaway

I have been dealing with A LOT of stressful things lately and to be honest, I'm beginning to feel like I am one of the unluckiest people around!  And that saying "when it rains it pours" seems to explain  my life to a tee.  Through all the bad luck, though, I try to stay positive but sometimes it can be really hard!  Thankfully this month's Chicken Soup for the Soul arrived a few days ago and this month's copy couldn't have come at a better time!

Chicken Soup for the Soul: Find Your Happiness - 101 Inspirational Stories about Finding Your Purpose, Passion & Joy

We all want to be happy and live our lives to the fullest but sometimes that can seem almost impossible.  They say positive things happen to positive people!  That's why I love this Chicken Soup for the Soul.  It's very comforting to read about how others have overcome obstacles in their lives to live happier, fuller lives.  According to the back of the book, "This book is the follow-on to bestselling Chicken Soup for the Soul: Think Positive.  Read inspirational true stories about how real people used positive thinking, thankfulness, and good old-fashioned common sense to find their own paths to happiness, pursuing their passions, finding their purpose, and reclaiming the joy in their lives."  You'll 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
  • Find your purpose at work, at play, and through volunteering
  • Find joy in simple pleasures and every day basics
  • Leave an unfulfilling job and find one with meaning
  • Experience the joy of giving
  • Stop and smell the flowers...and get your carrot!
So if you're feeling hopeless and need a little positive energy in your life, Chicken Soup for the Soul: Find your happiness - 101 inspirational stories about finding your purpose, passion & joy is the cure for what ails you!
My Review
After dealing with what seems like endless stress, I really needed some help with turning my frown upside down.  I always turn to my faith in times like this but sometimes it's a great feeling to know that others have overcome the same obstacles you are currently struggling with.  It's reassuring to know that these things are not impossible to conquer.  I have always believed in the power of positive thinking but during the past few months I seem to have been attracting quite a bit of negative energy.  
After reading this Chicken Soup for the Soul book, I actually started to feel better and think a little more positively again.  This book reminds you to count your blessings, the joy of giving, finding your purpose and your passions, and the stories of overcoming adversity and helping others are very inspirational.  Every Chicken Soup book I read contains at least a few stories that I can really relate to and that keeps me coming back for more every time!  If you're struggling and stressed out right now I highly recommend this book!  It really helps to be reminded that you're not alone in this world and that others have overcome.
Shopaholic Rating: 5 out of 5 Shopping Bags - Always a pleasure to read a Chicken Soup for the Soul book but this one really surprised me with how much better I feel after reading these stories.
