Books that help me deal with life

I tend to read my way through life. Going through a rough time at the moment and I’m finding solace in conversation, listening to music and reading books. As noted in a previous post I am a real bookworm. Some of the books which have helped me so far are When Bad Things Happen To Good People by Harold S Kushner and The Four Agreements by Miguel Ruiz, plus any books from the brilliant Chicken Soup For The Soul series by Jack Canfield & Mark Victor Hansen.

I cannot remember when I first picked up my first Chicken Soup book, but I can remember the title of it – Chicken Soup For The Teenage Soul. I still refer to it now even though I’m not a teen anymore. The stories from any book in the series give you hope and remind you that you’re never alone.

The Four Agreements is a very simple and easy-to-read book based on four concepts:
Be impeccable with your word

Don’t take anything personally

Don’t make assumptions

Always do your best

When Bad Things Happen To Good People is about finding peace when the going gets tough. Written by a rabbi who lost his 14-year-old son to an incurable genetic disease, it explores why there is so much pain in the world and how we can find peace despite it.

I know I will continue to read books of any genre to help me through my tough times. I will explore this topic throughout my blog regularly.
