My Review

First of all, this book is just what the doctor ordered. Sometimes I find myself getting down in a funk, ornery about something that happened in my day, and this book gave me so much perspective.   You really can be happy, genuinely happy if you allow yourself to be.  I loved how almost every page had a quote or a thought related to the chapter.  One of my favorites was found on page 71.
Science has proven that if you spend two full minutes focused on a happy thought, your brain actually starts making you happier.
This is so true! Just yesterday I was feeling down about some events that had taken place the night before and my bad feelings continued into the next day.  I received a phone call from a friend, and it distracted me to where I was no longer bothered and I felt happier.  I am always telling my daughters to be happy and be positive, it's much harder doing it for myself. This book gave me some great tools to help myself be happier and more positive.
