Simple Wisdom for Life's Hard Questions

By Lori Deschene

Meaningful Answers to Hard Questions 

“Tiny Buddha is a moving and insightful synthesis of evocative stories and ancient wisdom applied to modern life. A great read!” — Jonathan Fields, author of Uncertainty

From the mind behind TinyBuddha.com, Lori Deschene brings us the latest edition of her guide to peace, purpose, joy, and more! Exploring the challenging questions we all have to answer for ourselves, Tiny Buddha can be your handbook to personal fulfillment.

You are in control of your purpose. Life has a way of giving us more questions than answers. And despite our many differences, we all ask ourselves the same things, starting with: Why am I here? Featuring varied perspectives from Twitter followers around the world, Tiny Buddha can help us choose the meaning behind our existence and find purpose in our pain, no matter how deep.

Uncertainty can be a good thing. Offering straightforward, practical advice and pieces of her own personal journey, author Lori Deschene breaks down hard yet revealing questions about life, love, happiness, and change. We may have very few concrete answers, but that means we each get to decide for ourselves what it all means and what happiness looks like for us. Let Tiny Buddha help you create and honor that vision.

Inside, you’ll find:

  • The difference between searching for meaning versus creating it ourselves
  • Empowering ways to answer the question “What is happiness?” and how to create it
  • The importance of accepting your struggles without fully understanding the “why”
  • How to find mental freedom by letting go of control

If you like self-help books or advice blogs, or if you enjoyed Living on Purpose, The Soul’s Human Experience, or The Tao of Influence, then you’ll love Tiny Buddha.

Learn to Love Yourself

From Stress to Happiness. Many of us know intellectually that we need to be good to ourselves if we want to be happy. But it feels so hard. We are simultaneously the harsh judge and the lost, scared child who wants to stop feeling judged. It becomes a vicious cycle. It only stops when we step outside ourselves and observe how we got ourselves stuck. Only then can we learn to practice gratitude and positive thinking.

Joy and Peace. Lori Deschene, creator of TinyBuddha.com and the self-help journals Tiny Buddha's Worry Journal and Tiny Buddha's Gratitude Journal, shares 40 unique perspectives and insights to help you stop judging yourself so harshly. Featuring stories selected from hundreds of TinyBuddha.com contributors, Tiny Buddha’s Guide to Loving Yourself provides an honest look at what it means to overcome critical, self-judging thoughts to create a peaceful, empowered life.

More than a Self-Help Book. Tiny Buddha’s Guide to Loving Yourself is a collection of vulnerable reflections and epiphanies from people who are learning to love themselves, just like you. In this book, you will find:

  • Four authentic, vulnerable stories in each chapter
  • Insightful observations about our shared struggles and how to overcome them
  • Action-oriented suggestions based on the wisdom in the stories

Readers of inspirational books and spiritual books like The Book of Joy or other books by Lori Deschene such as Tiny Buddha's Worry Journal  or Tiny Buddha's Gratitude Journal will love Tiny Buddha's Guide to Loving Yourself.
