Chicken Soup for the Soul has released a new book – Chicken Soup for the Soul: From Lemons to Lemonade. Featuring 101 personal stories from readers turning something negative into a positive, I was excited to read through the stories – and see where I could find negatives in my own life that would be simple to turn to positives. I received a copy of Chicken Soup for the Soul: From Lemons to Lemonade to review.
Chicken Soup for the Soul: From Lemons to Lemonade
Have you had a crappy week – a crappy year – ok, maybe a couple crappy years?! Sometimes it helps to hear “cheer-up” or “it will all be over soon” and sometimes it helps to spend time with family and friends. But seriously, it doesn’t always get better when someone tells you to “cheer-up” – it is not always that easy to “cheer-up.” It is easy to focus on the problem and not take the time to look for a solution. What I liked about this new book from Chicken Soup for the Soul is you are hearing from people who have been handed lemons. They have walked through similar, hard, situations, and not only walked through the other side, BUT made something amazing out of their situation. Somehow hearing that others have been through something hard, and turned it into something to help others, make things easier, or create something great – made me look at “lemons” in my own life – made me feel like I needed to be taking some action to move towards “lemonade.”
When life hands you lemons, make lemonade! You can find Chicken Soup for the Soul: From Lemons to Lemonade on Amazon.
As a Souper Blogger, I am excited to have partnered with Chicken Soup for the Soul to giveaway a copy of this new book to three lucky Sweep Tight readers.
