Book Review, Musings

Book Review:- Happiness is all we want! By Ashutosh Mishra.

As far as self help books go, this one is well written and researched.

From the introduction at the start of each chapter to the tips at the last paragraph, the author carries you along by not only pointing out the problem, but providing the solution / possible solutions.

I like the break in between in the form of stories that prevent this book from being text book like and making it more relatable and practical.

A lot of self help books end up sounding abstract and unrealistic but this one goes beyond just telling you what’s wrong but showing you in this “modern age” how to tackle it and be happy.

However, I felt the book was target to only those with high drive work/ businesses unless of course they were only used as an example. Also some people with different views on meditation might not implement some of the meditation practices prescribed in the book.

Which is ok as I believe you can find ways to mediate that agree with your beliefs and way of life.

All in all this was a great read and I enjoyed it.

Seasons

This year has been a whirl of Ups and Downs but at long last I am finally where I am supposed to be. We go through seasons and each of them are geared to show and teach us something. Doesn’t mean the lessons will be easy, kind, good or even bearable but when we come through on the other side we end up forever changed. One thing to keep in mind is to ensure we come out the victor rather than letting the process break us.
