Keep It Simple & Sane

By

Inspired by the 12step saying, "Life is simple, it's people who are complicated," Barb Rogers points out in Keep It Simple and Sane that it's pretty easy to tell ourselves lie upon lie as we explain away bad behavior associated with drugs, alcohol, food, sex, work...whatever, in an attempt to feel better about our complicated lies. And of course, we can't do anything to simplify our lives because we're too busy keeping up with our complicated lives, so we drink, smoke, or shoot, to seek release in inappropriate ways to relieve the complications. But we never do. Through the telling of her own story and those of fellow travelers, Rogers encourages readers to wait, stop, and hold the phone Start with Mentally Simple (the opposite of Stinking Thinking) and just do it. Start small. "Grab a mental flashlight" and follow her lead to discover what you were thinking and how you might think differently. Offering 24 simple ideas in four sections (mind, emotions, spirituality, physicality), along with strategies and exercises to introduce them into your daily life, this book is for people on the simple path to wellness, for people who simply want to take charge -- to change the things they can change, accept the things they cannot change, and learn to know the difference without an operatic, addictive song and dance.

Whether readers need or want justice or gratitude, endurance or celebration, comfort or challenge, the process is the same -- read and listen to the word, enter into its meaning in the lives of others and bring that meaning to your own life.

Author and known speaker on animal-related issues Stephanie LaLand has gathered a multitude of stories sure to fill your heart with happiness and hope. From dogs to dolphins, learn true stories of animal compassion, devotion, and bravery.

Proof that there is something special about animals. Anyone who’s had a pet knows there is something special about them. We see it in their eyes when they look at us affectionately or play with others or help someone in need. Animal behavior is interesting because in many ways, how they act and the things they do are similar to the way we care for each other. Animals are affectionate and smart creatures, and this book highlights just a few of the ways that they practice compassion.

The beauty of the relationship between humans and animals. Not only does LaLand include random acts of kindness by animals in this book, but she also integrates instances of human compassion for animals. For example, she shares the story of a man who rebuilt his new house to look exactly like his old one so that his beloved cat would not be traumatized by the move. Stories like this one emphasize the unique bond that we share with animals and demonstrate just how beautiful that relationship can be.

Read Stephanie LaLand’s Random Acts of Kindness of Animals and discover…

  • Inspiring true stories that will surprise you and warm your heart
  • Acts of genuine, selfless compassion performed by our beloved animals

Life Is Sweet

By

From Harvard classrooms to your grandma's kitchen table--everybody is getting on the look on the brightside bandwagon. If you need to know, there's a ton of medical research to back it up, but people who appreciate where their bread is buttered and how sweet the jam on their toast is--well they're healthier, they live longer, they're usually more successful--although they may not define success as having the most marbles, and for sure other people want to spend more time around them. Addie Johnson calls Life Is Sweet her scrapbook, in which she's gathered stories that struck her--things that made her happy in the seeing or experience and in the remembering. And bits she's read. And quotes. People, stories, kids and animals, stuff/no stuff (aka all or nothing), achievements achieved and unpleasant tasks done, laughing (snickering, giggling, guffawing, wetting your pants) health or progress toward it--all are fodder for happiness. Life is sweet and creamy--yes your life and yours and yours and yoursif you just look at what's in front of your face.
