Many of us know intellectually that we need to be good to ourselves if we want to be happy. But it feels so hard. We are simultaneously the harsh judge and the lost, scared child who wants to stop feeling judged. It becomes a vicious cycle. It only stops when we step outside ourselves and observe how we get ourselves stuck. Tiny Buddha’s Guide to Loving Yourself from TinyBuddha.com creator Lori Deschene shares 40 unique perspectives and insights on topics related to loving yourself, including: realizing you’re not broken, accepting your flaws, releasing the need for approval, forgiving yourself, letting go of comparisons, and learning to be authentic. Featuring stories selected from hundreds of TinyBuddha.com contributors, the book provides an honest look at what it means to overcome critical, selfjudging thoughts to create a peaceful, empowered life. This book combines all of the elements that made Deschene’s first book, Tiny Buddha, compelling—authentic stories (four in each chapter); insightful observations about our shared struggles and how to overcome them; and action-oriented suggestions, based on the wisdom in the stories.
Why are we here? What is the meaning of life? What does it take to be happy? The answers to these and other life questions are gathered in Tiny Buddha: Simple Wisdom for Life’s Hard Questions, a little book with a big heart. Tiny Buddha began as a quote-a-day tweet by Lori Deschene and has grown into one of the most popular inspirational sites on the web. Because she believes we all have something to teach and something to learn, Lori runs Tiny Buddha as a community blog, featuring stories and insights from readers all over the globe. Tiny Buddha: Simple Wisdom for Life’s Hard Questions is a book of crowdsourced wisdom on the topics that influence how we live our everyday lives: pain, change, fate, happiness, possibilities, and more. Deschene explores how these issues have played out in her own life and provides tips and exercises for reflection and taking action. The result is a guide that helps readers live mindfully, in the present and connected to others. Replaces ISBN 9781609256203

Cultivate an Attitude of Gratitude Writing in a gratitude journal may only take a few minutes of your day, but doing so has the power to turn your entire life around. The Law of Attraction says that whatever you focus on grows stronger. By making a habit to focus on the positive side of things, even something you might label as negative, you are tapping into the secret of living a happy life. When we start counting the little things that we treasure, things that may otherwise escape our attention in the chaos of daily life, not only are we becoming more positive and loving, but more giving and appreciative as well. Our happiness is no one’s responsibility but our own; when we stop reacting to the people and circumstances around us, we’re taking back control of our lives in order to steer it in the direction we want to go. Giving thanks to the universe is giving love, and what we give inevitably comes back to us. Have an attitude of gratitude. Once you make a habit out of appreciating all the gifts in life, big or small, you’ll begin to attract more positive people and situations. Bad habits and former worries will disappear, replaced by faith and good feeling toward yourself and others. Starting a gratitude journal is easy. All you need is a pen, a notebook, and a moment to lay down your appreciation for what you’ve been given in life. This book contains journal prompts on 52 different topics, each one beginning with an inspirational gratitude quote from great men and women of the past and present. You can focus on one topic a week if you wish—that’s enough to last you a year. Or you may pick and choose a prompt at random if you are looking for inspiration and new ideas on any given day.
Brighten your day with this colorful journal from happiness expert Karen Salmansohn. Jam-packed with 365 "happiness prompters" including motivational quotes, scientific studies, and thought-provoking questions, this journal amps up your ability to notice (and create!) moments of joy and gratitude in your life--one day at a time.

Joseph Emet explores the intersection between Positive Psychology--the study of what makes people happy--and the ancient wisdom of Buddhism. Positive Psychology—with its focus not on mental "disease," but rather on what actually makes people happy—has revolutionized the way that we look at mental health. What many people don't realize, however, is that Positive Psychology is not as young a field of inquiry as we think. In fact, according to Joseph Emet, the original positive thinker was the Buddha himself. In this wise and inspiring book, Emet traces the fascinating intersection between the age-old wisdom of Buddhism and the latest scientific research into what makes people happy. In this book readers will discover: * How to replace negative thinking with positive thinking * How to move from frenzied thinking to quiet contemplation * The duty we have to others to live a happy life As Joseph explains in this work, the blue sky of happiness is found just beyond the grey clouds of sadness, everyday concerns, stress, or anxiety. Readers will find that the advice in this book can act as the gentle wind that clears those clouds away. From the Trade Paperback edition.
