Tiny Buddha's Guide to Loving Yourself

40 Ways to Transform Your Inner Critic and Your Life

By Lori Deschene

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.

Timeless Wisdom of the Universe

A little book with a big impact. Why are we here? What is the meaning of life? Why are relationships so hard? What does it take to be happy? The answers to these and other life questions are explored in author Lori Deschene’s Tiny Buddha: Simple Wisdom for Life’s Hard Questions.

We all have something to teach and something to learn. Tiny Buddha began as a Lori Deschene quote-a-day tweet in 2008. As popularity grew, Lori asked her Twitter followers to contribute their thoughts and perspectives on the difficult questions that influence how we live our everyday lives: thoughts about purpose, pain, happiness, fate, and more. Lori's daily wisdom posts about mindfulness, non-attachment, and happiness became so popular that she now has more than 300,000 social media followers who share quotes and stories about letting go of pain and opening up to joy. Her inspirational site has grown into one of the most popular on the web.

Tiny Buddha, Simple Wisdom for Life's Hard Questions is a combination of the amazing responses that Lori received along with her own insightful essays, and lessons from wise teachers around the world and throughout time. In this book she shares her own experience overcoming depression, isolation, self-loathing, and a sense of meaninglessness. This inspirational book explores how issues have played out in Lori’s own life and offers action-oriented recommendations to help people empower themselves in our world of uncertainty. The result is a guide that helps readers discover the endless possibilities for a life lived mindfully in the present, connected to others.

If you liked Lori Deschene’s other books such as, Tiny Buddha's Guide to Loving Yourself and Tiny Buddha's Worry Journal, or are a fan of Matthew Sockolov’s Practicing Mindfulness, Gabrielle Bernstein’s The Universe Has Your Back, or Patricia Collard’s Little Book of Mindfulness; you’ll love Lori Deschene's Tiny Buddha: Simple Wisdom for Life’s Hard Questions.

Daily Mindful Affirmations to Help You Find Peace

“An important reminder of the simple truths which can bring us to a peaceful mind and heart.”—Becca Anderson, author of Prayers For Calm

#1 New Release in Eastern Philosophy, Taoism

Everyone deserves a peaceful journey, regardless of age or gender, religious affiliation or political preference. With more than 3.5 million copies sold, this beautifully curated collection of daily quotes about life  seeks to influence the way you live the next 24 hours. The result of more peaceful days? A more peaceful planet.

Peace is always possible, even in the midst of a storm. By sharing a meditation for each day of the year, author Karen Casey speaks to the common experience, shared struggles, and unique strengths of those who seek support and spiritual growth in recovery. Featuring inspirational quotes about finding peace and honoring love, this positive thinking book offers the perfect touchstone at this crucial time in history—a time when millions are seeking quiet moments and mindful meditation.

Today can open the door to a new way of living. Love can be a powerful influence in our lives. It’s the total absence of judgment. It’s pure acceptance. It is the inner voice reminding us that all is well and God is present, right here and right now. The overwhelming peace we feel is all the evidence we need of God’s constancy. The expression of love quiets our minds and we are flooded with inner peace. How much gentler our lives would be if we dispensed with all expressions but love. But we don’t live in a world that truly values peace. What if we can turn away from constant judgment and offer love instead, in every situation? By doing so we will be sowing peace.

If you’re looking for inspirational books, mindful gifts, quotes about thinking positive, or mindfulness books for adults—or enjoyed books like A Year of Positive Thinking or 5-Minute Daily Meditations—then you’ll love Each Day a Renewed Beginning.

Recover from Job Loss with Support of Other Women

"This is the first book that I know of that truly helps you learn from women from many professional sectors how to recover from big setbacks in our work lives. It’s a must read.” —Dr. Elena Pezzini, organizational psychologist

Successful women show how they reclaimed and rebuilt their personal power and careers after being fired from a job and being rendered powerless by their employers.

Practical job loss recovery tools for women. When women get fired, it is often devastating, traumatic, and isolating. We experience a sudden powerlessness that can destroy our confidence and feelings of self-worth. We grieve. We feel broken. It affects our self-esteem, our financial well-being, our professional identity, and our ability to look for other work―in short, it affects our entire way of life. How, then, does a woman navigate the emotional impact of this event? With other women.

You are not alone. In Betrayed by Work, authors Julia Erickson, MBA, and Suzanne Vosburg, PhD, bear witness to the stories of women just like you―and just like them. This book shows how women lost their jobs, describes what happened to them immediately and in the aftermath, validates women’s feelings about being fired, and offers a source of hope and companionship to those of us coping with either our own job loss or the sudden job loss of someone we know or love.

Discover:

  • True stories from women who are honest about how they were fired and their feelings
  • Key points to help process each story and apply its lesson to your own experience
  • Practical takeaways and suggestions to help you cope with job loss

If you were encouraged by personal growth books about women in business like Invaluable by Maya Grossman, In the Company of Women by Grace Bonney, Presence by Amy Cuddy, or Power Moves by Lauren McGoodwin, then you’ll be inspired and empowered by Betrayed by Work.
