Books 

The Book of JOY

A beautifully captured journey between two great minds discussing the essence of Joy in our world.Despite our experiences, trauma or hardship they believe joy can be found and experienced in each moment. It is not a destination, it is not something we gain externally to ourselves. It is within us and we choose how to act in accordance with it, within each moment we act and respond in life.

I am reading this book for a second time now. It has enabled me to see within myself abilities I thought I never had or perhaps, never had control over.

Happily Never After.

A book for those who have travelled the
journey and those of you who want plain insight into what a journey living with anxiety feels like. This is one of the few books I have read where I feel like the words I were reading were mine; depicting some of my experiences and those I was seeing supporting, Kyle, our son through severe anxiety. Highly recommend.
