Chicken Soup for the Soul: Tough Times, Tough People (Giveaway)
Everyone finds themselves in difficult situation at times: layoffs, natural disasters, grief, illness, economic troubles, etc. Chicken Soup for the Soul is known for stories that inspire, educate, and basically just makes you feel better. Their newest title, Tough Times, Tough People, is no exception.
Chicken Soup for the Soul: Tough Times, Tough People (Chicken Soup for the Soul Publishing, LLC, June 2009, 978-1-935096-35-1, $14.95) reminds us that tough times won’t last, but tough people will. Tough People is all about overcoming adversity, pulling together, making do with less, facing challenges, and finding new joys in a simpler life. This new collection shares tales of people who have been laid off, lost their homes, and endured wrenching life changes, but discovered the underlying gifts in their new situations. More time at home with family, creative “staycations,” more satisfying job opportunities, and renewed gratitude for health and life are just a few of the silver linings these survivors have learned to cherish.
What I really loved about this book, as well as all their other titles, is that the stories are written by everyday people with everyday lives. It makes the stories that much more inspiring and makes me feel like if they can overcome their obstacles then I can, too.
I found the book easy to navigate with stories being categorized into various topics. This really helped me find just the right stories for my situation. However, the best part is that each story was only a few pages long. Perfect for when you have a few minutes to spare. My favorite section was The Power of Positive Thinking. It reminded me to always look on the bright side and hope for the best. Sometimes, positive thinking can bring upon positive results!
This book can be purchased at Amazon.com for $10.17.
