Happy, Okay?

Poetry to Confront Depression, Anxiety, Grief, and Loss

Are the usual anxiety books helping you find a path to healing? No? Try this collection of poetry specially crafted for those dealing with mental health and the people closest to them.

Poetry meets mental health. Paloma is faking it. On the outside, she’s A-Okay. She’s electrified at work, there is a cadence in her step as she walks her dog, she posts memes on Facebook, and she keeps up with most relationships. Looks can be deceiving, however. Inside, Paloma is just going through the motions, and she feels like things are spiraling out of control. But when things are at their darkest, dawn arrives with clarity and focus, and with it, healing. Paloma learns to value small glimmering moments of joy rather than searching for constant happiness, thus building hope for her future.

A manifesto for life. An electric roadmap to healing and a manifesto for wholeness, Happy, Okay?: Poems about Anxiety, Depression, Hope, and Survival, is written in a contemporary style reminiscent of Rupi Kaur and Pierre Alex Jeanty. But this poetry book is not simply a narrative spun in verse. It is an invitation to readers to shake off the stigma and silence of mental health and find strength in the only voice that matters: your own. Whether exploring self-care, social anxiety, or anxiety in relationship, in this inspiring and heartwarming book, you will:

  • Understand how to make happiness a decision, even when you don’t feel it in your bones
  • Find out how to exercise patience and self-acceptance
  • Attract hope and purpose back into your life

If you enjoy poem books or books like HerBlack Girl MagicPillow ThoughtsMilk and Honey, or The Sun and Her Flowers, then you will love Happy, Okay? by M.J. Fievre.

“We all know that journaling can be a powerful self-care practice, Greta artfully shows us HOW.” ―Suzy Reading, Chartered Psychologist, Mind Editor at Psychologies magazine and Author of The Self-Care Revolution

Discover how free writing and journaling can be an incredible way to heal your heart, find happiness, and reconnect with the things that matter most.

Transform your life. Journaling and freewriting can bring you a deeper level of self-knowledge, allowing you to truly know who you are. Heart, Sass & Soul shows you how to develop a writing practice that nurtures inner strength and promotes a rich, fulfilled life.

Recover the joy of creative self-expression. As kids, many of us had vibrant imaginations and our lives were full of creativity. Over time, that self-expression gets lost in the busy routine of everyday life. But it doesn’t have to be that way. The tips, techniques, and exercises for free writing in this book helps you tap into that creativity deep in your soul.

Writing can be your best self-care therapy. Most of us, at some point in our lives, lose something we truly love. That time in-between jobs, friends, relationships, homes, or whatever else, is the “great unknown.” In the midst of loss and grief, you need self-care more than ever. In fact, the best thing to do in these times is write.

Heart, Sass, & Soul is not a journal, it’s a method for writing freely that will change the way you live. Learn to:

  • Overcome self-doubt and develop a new creative identity
  • Transform dark times into something beautiful
  • Find moments for healing yourself without judgement
  • Become empowered with uninhibited self-expression

The Gift of Crisis

By

Celebrating and Empowering Black Lives and Black Authors

Approach Crisis with Self-Love, Assertiveness and Courage

You are not alone: Since the start of the recession, 8.8 million jobs have been lost, according to the Bureau of Labor Statistics. Bridgitte Jackson-Buckley was one of those 8.8 million people who lost their jobs. Between 2007 and 2014, she was also one of 7.3 million homeowners who lost their homes to foreclosure. Some affected by job loss and foreclosure, due to the economic downturn, were able to bounce back relatively emotionally unscathed. Many, however, internalized the outer events as a negative reflection of their personal capacities without taking a deeper look at the crisis as a potential underlying catalyst. In The Gift of Crisis, Bridgitte shows you how to explore crisis as a tool for courageous change, regaining your self-esteem with self-love and self-compassion.

Regain control with assertiveness: Although a personal economic crisis can be viewed as an externally-influenced event that is somehow both beyond your control and within your control, it can also be an opportunity to examine the conscious and sub-conscious conditions that brought the experience into your life. It was through experiences of prolonged financial crisis that Bridgitte realized she subconsciously co-created experiences that felt so bad until the only place she could go was within—exactly where she needed to go. In The Gift of Crisis, you will discover how helpful going within and retaking control can be for you, too.

Find space for spiritual growth: The Gift of Crisis will show how repeated crises can serve as a catalyst to reveal the underlying purpose, and how questions posed during a meditative state can reveal answers in the direction of a higher purpose. For women and men who are sincerely interested in spiritual growth, yet find it difficult to make “mental room” to dedicate to such growth due to personal distractions, this inspirational book will demonstrate the practical manner in which meditation and prayer can assist during any type of crisis as a means of reaching for a calmer, clearer, more courageous and purposeful life.

The Gift of Crisis interposes personal stories and prescriptive ideas amidst ongoing financial destitution to raise your self-esteem, self-compassion and self-love. In reading this book, you will learn how to:

  • Deepen your trust in a Higher Intelligence and in your higher purpose
  • Welcome change and embrace change with courage
  • Focus your attention on the emergence of new possibilities as a result of the crisis

If you liked Brené Brown’s inspirational book The Gifts of Imperfection, you’ll love The Gift of Crisis.
