Incredibly inspiring and touching.,
This review is from: Chicken Soup For The Soul: 101 Stories to Open the Heart and Rekindle the Spirit: Stories That Restore Your Faith in Human Nature (Paperback)
Wow!! This book has totally altered the way I think about life. I know that we all have a story to tell, and sometimes, things just seem so hard, and you feel like you have it worse than anyone else. May be you do, but reading this book just totally turns you around. It offers so much. It restores your faith in other people, trite I know, but it really does. It gives you courage and strength to carry on, even when things seem SO bad. I found it to be totally life-affirming, completely inspiring, and very comforting. I cried so many times during the book, so moved by the stories. I had heard about this book, and dismissed it as being over-emotional without ever reading it. I am so glad that I put my prejudice behind me, and finally read it. It is hard to do it justice by writing about it, it really should be read, savoured, and kept for those times when everything just gets us down. It is what it says, it's chicken soup for the soul, and it makes you feel better. Wonderful!!
