"When I was a boy and I would see scary things in the news, my mother would say to me, "Look for the helpers. You will always find people who are helping. To this day, especially in times of "disaster," I remember my mother's words and I am always comforted by realizing that there are still so many helpers – so many caring people in this world." Mr. RogersWhat a wise mama. Her words deeply resonated with me, and so that's what I'm doing. Continuing to focus on good vibes, love, happiness. Concentrating on living a balanced life of love, purpose, gratitude, and service. Here are three books that have absolutely inspired me, each in their own way, to lead a happier, more optimistic, and centered life. Also, they are easy and fun reads - which is about all I can handle right now. I was given a review copy of two of the titles, and I came across the third three years ago, just before I moved to Arizona.
