There is a world of living, love and gentle guidance couched amongst the pages of this wonderful collective from well-known author and presenter Stephanie Dowrick as she shares not only a lifetime of her living and learning, but the solution to many of the everyday issues we all face in life.

As you read or dip into the chapters (Dipping is recommended as more of the lovely wisdom tends to stay with you) you realise that self-confidence is the one thing you wish you had more of, and are searching for the most, as confidence in self is the key to solving many of the everyday issues in life.

 

In her beautifully gentle manner she reaches out to everyone with a lovely feeling of warmth and sharing, creating an intimacy that delivers the answers which are being sought.

Dwelling on happiness, kindness, to self and others, relationships, work and a very wise chapter on Children and their Parents, Dowrick offers a guiding hand and calming sense of all will be well.

Above all else, the love and wisdom wrapped in the pages encourages us to step back just a little and take a look at how we “live” in today’s world and what we can do to create more happiness, self-confidence and joy, in not only our lives but in others we come into contact with every day.

Enriching, engaging, comforting and insightful, you cannot possibly read this book without feeling so much better for the experience.
