Keep This One Handy for the Tough Times Jan 10, 2005
In her introduction, the author describes a summer filled with of mishaps, challenges, dilemmas, and minor disasters that, "when strung together," made her life difficult. In the moment, she just wanted to "get on" with her life, but later realized that this was her life. The succeeding 10 chapters, or tips, address life's challenges, changes, and crises, through personal stories and pithy quotations ranging from "Normal is just a setting on your hair dryer" to "Compassion directed toward oneself is humility." Each chapter contains suggestions for dealing with difficult times, under headings such as acknowledge your struggles, recognize that you've been there before, and find hope in the moment. You might want to read this one straight through initially, then, in times of stress, reread appropriate sections and practice the activities.
