Book Excerpt :

The loss of a loved one, a bitter divorce, a serious injury or financial crisis—we must all, at some point, face those unavoidable moments that divide our lives into "before" and "after." How do we muscle through tough times and emerge stronger, wiser—even grateful for our struggle? In 1984, author Jerry White lost his leg in a tragic accident. He has personally endured the pain of loss and the challenge of rebuilding. As cofounder of Survivor Corps, White has met thousands of victims of tragedy. With his book Getting Up When Life Knocks You Down, he shares what he has learned. White outlines a specific five-step program for turning tragedy into triumph. In their own words, his survivor friends share their stories. It's a group that includes the well known, like Lance Armstrong, Nelson Mandela, and the late Princess Diana, and also everyday survivors of death, loss, injury and heartbreak. Through their stories and the author's words, this book takes readers step by step through the process of not only surviving tragedy and victimhood, but going on to thrive.

Book Short Summary:

“It couldn’t happen to me”. Richard’s a 39 year old happily married man with two wonderful children, a house in the suburbs and a station-wagon. He buys clothes from the ‘medium’ rack and has beige carpets in his house. He is Mr Average. Why did the slow fuse of unmanaged stress smoulder for so long before finally igniting the depression that was more whimper than bang? This is a raw and revealing look at how he succumbed to the demands of modern day metropolitan life; how he burnt out, slid into a severe clinical depression and lost all ability to function and feel basic emotions. It is also a tale of how he came through it, recovering himself and discovering a whole wonderful new way to live. It is funny, shocking, sad, desperate, enlightening, inspirational and informative. It is also completely true. This book is for anyone feeling stressed, worried they are burning out or who is currently suffering from depression and wants honest, practical advice on ways to cope and change their lives positively. In other words – anyone, drawing breath in the 21st Century. This book has been declared a finalist in the International Book Awards

Book Short Summary:

He knew the earth experiment was still working even though the human-element component was running very much behind schedule. Tommy made a grumbling sound and slowly shook his furry head from side to side, crying, Wars, greed, jealousy, illnesses, unhappiness, dissatisfaction, obsessions for power - It s just not what I had expected! I know, but give it time. It will happen one day. The earth assignment is not as old as all the other projects we have been working upon , Eric hastily reassured. Tommy was not about to give up on the present venture and with this thought in mind, he stared with his numerous eyes into Eric s multiple eyes, and with many worrisome looks he mumbled, ..it s a nice place, shame about the human race! The above is an extract taken from the final piece of my foreword for the book Nice place, shame about the human race which attempts to create a better awareness of our everyday actions and elucidates the importance of discovering ones true identity for a better chance of living a happier, more balanced life. Mounting dissatisfactions and insecurities of our modern world, together with the general inquisitiveness of human nature to wish observe ones actions, are areas of modern life which have gained popularity over the last decade when searching for reasoning or answers to our everyday problems. Commencing at the aftermath of World War II and continuing to the present day, a journey is undertaken in trying to illustrate modern western society s increased negative attitudes and behaviour and of the importance of discovering who we really are with a view to more personal happiness. This book is an entertaining, slightly ironical check-in-the-mirror , if you like, of modern behaviour. It observes how modern society has seemingly done away with aspiring to reach higher goals and standards, and at the same time, appears to have become content with mediocrity and of aiming towards lower levels of existence. My main justifications for writing such a book were primarily based upon the search for answers as to why society in the modern western world has reached its present state of development in the constitution of which it finds itself in the present day; if it is possible to live modern life in a more balanced, friendlier frame-of-mind which would inexorably, lead to more happiness, and as an attempt to help you, the reader, into being more aware of our daily conscious and subconscious conduct towards fellow-citizens and of the ensuing consequences of those actions. We are to journey through the many different stages of modern western life as based upon our upbringing in an industrialised society; and although you may have heard some of the themes and topics many times before, I have attempted to pick out the quintessence of noting how individuals react within the confines of our various societies and communal boundaries. What type of person is Nice place, shame about the human race aimed for? Well basically, anybody who is still interested about the values of our modern society, but specifically, when amid the interference and confusion of modern society, one is searching for personal direction into discovering oneself. Emphasis has been placed upon the significance of living ones own individuality, thus being aware of who one really is, and of the importance of taking more self-responsibility for ones actions. Here is a short list of reasons compiled for those who would possibly find my work of interest. 1. If feeling a little out-of-touch with our fast-paced modern society. 2. When interested in achieving more personal awareness in everyday activities. 3. When concerned about societies present course of development. 4. When trying to understand modern societies push and shove mentality. 5. When searching for more in-depth reasoning to our lives. 6. When fee

Book Short Summary:

Poetry is something that we all share, each time that we think a thought. We think in poetry, only some of us are not able to put it in words but thoughts of poetry live in our hearts. We are filled with emotions and that is what poetry is. You need to just open your heart to the words written for they are the words coming from a heart just like you. From our pain and our sacrifices to our joy and happiness, when you read this we will be able to see that we are all the same seeking love and a dream that we can claim. There are times when we may feel lost and there is nothing that we can do. The truth is that there will always be options for us to choose. Only with our ever changing emotions at the time we are blind to see. For every action there is an opposite reaction. There are things that we know that we can do yet we get caught up in the things that we are going through. There are times when we are happy and times when we are sad. It is a delicate balance in the lives that we live. Each of us will need to come to grips with the way that we feel. We are never alone although we think at the time that we are alone. We need to find the courage to reach out and say that we are here. Is there anyone out there that care about the lives that we live? At the end of the day if we listen closely we will be able to hear a voice saying that I am here, you are not alone. Ever changing emotions is what will live in our hearts. We just have to decide the things that we want to do and find the courage to follow them through. The Life that I have had to live has been very difficult but the love in my heart kept me strong even when I sometimes may have felt alone. I have cried my share of tears and I have suffered many years but I kept the love in my heart. We are human and we make mistakes but as long as we live there will always be another road for us to take. I pray that the poems that you are reading help you to understand that we all go through life’s ever changing emotions. We have to live in the moment and if that moment continues to last then we should remember that our lives are made up of our past, present and our future. For as long as we live we can change the way that we feel. Love and forgiveness is what we should always hold most precious in our lives. Love and forgiveness can forever live in our hearts. Poetry is something that we all share, each time that we think a thought. We think in poetry, only some of us are not able to put it in words but thoughts of poetry live in our hearts. We are filled with emotions and that is what poetry is. You need to just open your heart to the words written for they are the words coming from a heart just like you. From our pain and our sacrifices to our joy and happiness, when you read this we will be able to see that we are all the same seeking love and a dream that we can claim.

Discover the power of vulnerability and bravery and learn how to rise strong when life knocks you down. Life is tough. Sometimes life knocks us down, and when we fall, it hurts. When we struggle and find ourselves in the deep, dark recesses of our minds, it can feel as if the weight of the world is on our shoulders. Luckily, social scientist Brené Brown’s research reveals the power of vulnerability and bravery in creating a life of joy, love, creativity, and belonging. Of course, living a brave life won’t always come easily; inevitably, life will knock us down. How we rise from that fall, however, is important. Throughout Brown’s research, she listened to a wide range of people: leaders of Fortune 500 companies, artists, couples in long-term relationships, teachers, and parents as they shared their stories of being brave, falling, and getting back up. What did each of these people have in common? Each person recognized the power of emotion and wasn’t afraid to lean in to discomfort. When we try to rise from the fall, our courage is tested. But no matter the struggle, the process of rising strong is the same. Throughout Rising Strong, you’ll learn why being brave means taking a risk and how to use the rising strong process to change your perspective.

Short, simple and refreshingly practical, Living Simply offers 21 Earth Warrior practices to help us live more consciously and to cope with the ever increasing pace of modern life. Bob Hillary shares the lessons he learned living off the grid, exploring his ‘wild edges’ and practicing a slower, more attuned way of life. How can we live more simply, learn to appreciate what we have and root our way of being in the Earth we have inherited? By living simply and becoming an Earth Warrior. As life keeps urging us to go faster, many of us are moving in the opposite direction... we are looking for SLOWNESS, for stillness, to live more natural, less complex lives.

These philosophies provided a framework for the 21 practices he shares in this book. Each one covers the key idea, contains exercises and provides practical ways that will help you become an Earth Warrior. By living this way you will learn how to live in a more joyful, positive, simple and meaningfully way. Earth Warriors give, share and care.

Book Short Summary:

Formally - The Red Bird Trail Trilogy!!! Fast Cars Quarter-miles Broken homes Vulnerable hearts Cash Montgomery likes fast cars, fast women, and living his life only as far as he can see with his own two eyes. There are very few people in his life who he answers to. One of them being his little brother Remington (Remy). When Cash and Remy are forced to make a life-changing decision they no longer have a place to live, no idea where their next meal is going to come from, or any prospects as to how they will make it. They need help. That help comes in the form of the Heaven Hill MC and Harper Stillwell. Harper Stillwell comes with her own set of problems, but when she and Cash Montgomery meet, sparks fly. None of them know what they’re doing, where they will end up, or how they’ll get there. The only thing they know is that the race for their lives is only beginning—the flag is waving—and they have to hang on for the ride.

Book Short Summary:

From renowned yogi meditation teacher and author of Do Your Om Thing Rebecca Pacheco comes Still Life, offering an in-depth exploration of mindfulness and meditation misconceptions to arm the reader with inspirational and practical tools for cultivating a consistent mindfulness practice. For years Rebecca Pacheco has taught readers and students alike how to embrace the wisdom of the yoga sutras and reap the mental, emotional, and spiritual benefits of the ancient tradition. Now, in Still Life, she turns her focus to mindfulness, demystifying a seemingly esoteric practice and giving readers practical, real-life tools to implement mindfulness in their own lives—regardless of experience level or lifestyle. Pacheco begins by deconstructing the common misperceptions about meditation—including the idea that is a cure-all for every malady—offering valuable insight into what mindfulness does entail, and why the process of cultivating more of it can improve not only our own lives, but also the lives of others. Pacheco also takes aim at the reductive “good vibes only” veneer commonly heard in the contemporary wellness community, which suggests mindfulness is steeped in positivity. A contemplative life, Pacheco argues, isn’t synonymous with bliss, but rather requires a degree of mental, emotional, and spiritual grappling. Still Life challenges readers to dig deep and develop the tools that can ultimately lead to joy—including to waking up in the present, reclaiming the moment, and living life fully.

Book Short Summary:

Do not be deceived: racism is still brewing in South Africa. The author shares about how she experienced firsthand rejection when she fell in love with a white man. In spite of being a sought after career woman, she was unequivocally rejected because of the colour of her skin. When love fi nds a grown up black village girl and white farm boy, nothing can be the same again. The seemingly unlikely online connection transforms their lives, that of their children and the unborn generations within them. The tone is honest. The author dares to ask questions that are often sidetracked and raises the alarm. Her unpretentious pitch is most captivating and allows for the reader to connect with her. She uses some of her most intimate and discreet encounters to relay a story that is not a story at all. If you found an open journal would you read it? Greatness resides within you. Dont wait for others to acknowledge it. Recognize it and run with it! (Wini Mgidi) Only a few people could guess that the prominent woman, standing accomplished and still soaring today, came from the humble, ashy streets of rural Mpumalanga. Her less privileged past is the very same thing that gives her hope and confidence. Ambitious and determined to grasp whatever she sets her mind into, she is a young, well-travelled person with visions not only set on international benchmarks but are often surpassed by her inner drive and relentless pursuit to see them materialise before her.

Book Short Summary:

Volume 2 is a continuation from Hindsight Volume 1. This volume will build off the foundation set in volume 1, thus furthering the challenge and perspective already set forth. This is a journey that will dive deeper into core values and enhanced perception. Your experiences matter and so does how you interact with people in life. In a time where life is changing due to the Covid-19 pandemic, we are all forced to adjust whether we like it or not. Social distancing has challenged us. Economic instability threatens peace of mind. Face masks, plexiglass and people counting how many shoppers enter a building makes us feel like aliens in our own communities. This book is a great tool to help you remember to be human. Social interaction may have been taken for granted for several generations. While we have technology to aid us during these trying times, it is still no substitute for those that are considered “essential personnel”. In the chapter about Duty, know that my words apply to you as well. Any and all medical personnel, any and all first responders, food and agriculture workers, energy personnel (electric, petroleum, and gas), water staff (clean and waste), logistic personnel (including all transportation), all public works, anyone affiliated with communications, members of government (on all applicable levels), critical manufacturing, hazardous material workers, chemical personnel, financial services, defense personnel, commercial and professional services and anyone who brings our mail to us, thank you. If you are contributing to someone’s sanity or even maintaining your own by staying productive, I thank you as well. It’s not really a description about the book, but it is certainly a piece of what you can extract from it by honoring those that fulfill their duty in society. Read more to find out.

Book Short Summary:

Kimberly Woods is the twenty-three-year-old daughter of Pastor Gerald Woods and an only child. Being the only daughter and a pastor’s daughter is the reason why she’s spoiled and of course, her father has money. Pastor Woods is the head of City Hope Church located in Los Angeles, California. Kimberly feels that she’s at the age in which it’s time for her to settle down with a man who she can see herself with for the rest of her life—her husband. She’s been involved with plenty of men, but they were only interested in her because of her title and wealth. One day, she comes across a man named Shea who is the complete opposite of what she’s used to. He doesn’t go to church and isn’t a fan of her nor her father. He actually thinks that people who go to church are hypocrites. Kimberly truly believes that Shea is “the one,” simply because he’s not like the men in her past. He’s a challenge, which is one of the many reasons why she’s attracted to him. Will Pastor Woods get in the middle of Kim and Shea’s relationship? Will their relationship succeed or will it fail due to both of their different lifestyles? Does the preacher’s daughter have another side of her that she doesn’t want anyone to know about?
