Everyone knows I'm always trying to be positive but sometimes it gets difficult. That's why the idea of a new year and fresh start for 2015 has me extra motivated. To help me out even more, I read a book by Dodinsky called In The Garden of Thoughts.
It's actually a follow-up book to the New York Times bestseller In The Garden of Thoughts. In this book, Dodinsky's goal is to uplift the readers' hearts and souls. It's a very empowering and encouraging book full of little illustrations and positive words. It covers everything from contentment to self-confidence.
One of my favorite lines is "Whenever you manage to smile in spite of the hardships you're facing, it means your soul is refusing to be a prisoner of your own sorrows." How true is that?! This really helped motivate me to keep on the path of positive thinking. I am specifically working on not letting those around me affect my mood in a terrible way. This book gave me a lot of reminder on how I am in control of how I let people affect me in that way. Sometimes we need a little something that we can read and remind us to keep moving forward no matter what life throws at us.
And to kick off the new year on an even more positive note - one reader will win a giveaway package that includes In the Garden of Happiness, signed bookplate, and magnet.
