Review of THE HAPPY PLACE
By Lori Gosselin
After reading this book, what strikes me about Lori is that she refuses to live an ordinary life, fraught with disappointment and frustration. Furthermore, Lori learned that the only thing between her and buoyant happiness is her own unconscious resistance, and she learned how to overcome this resistance. Lori does a wonderful job of sharing her personal life experiences to teach you what she learned.
Lori offers a powerful underlying message in her book. The message is this: no matter how important things may seem in your life, take the time to explore yourself.
Lori does not say this specifically, but she makes it clear in a thousand different ways.
What I love about the book is that Lori not only explains how she stripped away layers of self-harming patterns, she offers concrete methods that enable anyone to do it.
It is clear, that Lori values doing what her heart points to, not what others tell her to do. Moreover, she has learned how to be gentle with herself when it is time to make changes. Lori demonstrates this powerful lesson in several ways throughout the book.
I recommend this book to anyone who wants to liberate themselves from their mechanical lifestyle so they may experience their unrealized potential. It is clear that one of Lori's chief aims was to get her `old self' out of the way so she could allow something incredibly new to shine through. I like how this unfolds in the book.
There is no adventure in life as wonderful as discovering a new world for yourself. Lori loves discovering more and more of this new world. Once on the path, Lori has never relaxed her guard against self-delusion. She offers wonderful advice on how to seek clear self-understanding that will strengthen you.
Do you really want to turn your life in a new direction? I suggest reading Lori's book.
