Chicken Soup for the Soul: Find Your Happiness

101 Stories about Finding Your Purpose, Passion, and Joy

Others share how they found their passion, purpose, and joy in life in these 101 personal and exciting stories that are sure to encourage readers to find their own happiness. Stories in this collection will inspire readers to pursue their dreams, find their passion and seek joy in their life. This book continues Chicken Soup for the Soul's focus on inspiration and hope, reminding readers that they can find their own happiness.

Once again, I have thoroughly enjoyed this brand new Chicken Soup for the Soul book. This one is all about finding your happiness. Here are the main sections, each one including about ten individual stories written by a variety of authors:

  • Counting My Blessings
  • Back to Basics
  • Finding My Passion
  • Attitude Adjustments
  • Overcoming Adversity
  • The Joy of Giving
  • Finding My Purpose
  • Simple Pleasures
  • Making the Best of It
  • Jumping Off the Hamster Wheel

It is difficult writing a review of a book that has such a varied selection of topics and different authors. However, this one is a definite keeper. It is totally inspirational, and packed full of great ideas to help us focus on the positive things in life, making the best of what we have. Sometimes all we really need is to hear that others have experienced the same things, and have been able to rise above their circumstances and truly find happiness.

One of my favourites from this book is titled "What If You Won the Lottery?" In this story, the author was questioned by her brother as to what she would do first if she won the lottery. Without hesitation, she said she would move to Italy. Her brother then encouraged her to follow her dream immediately, and he helped her to focus on whatever was holding her back. A great story that shows how anything really is possible!
