Happy This Year! by Will Bowen
"Didn't quite finish this (audio) book, but after an initial "meh" reaction to the author's reading, eventually got into it and heard some very helpful suggestions and ideas. And yes, happiness is a choice (dammit). :) "

“Hurt people hurt people. We are not being judgmental by separating ourselves from such people. But we should do so with compassion. Compassion is defined as a "keen awareness of the suffering of another coupled with a desire to see it relieved." People hurt others as a result of their own inner strife and pain. Avoid the reactive response of believeing they are bad; they already think so and are acting that way. They aren't bad; they are damaged and they deserve compassion. Note that compassion is an internal process, an understanding of the painful and troubled road trod by another. It is not trying to change or fix that person.”
Will Bowen, Complaint Free Relationships: Transforming Your Life One Relationship at a Time

“Happy people are not people without problems; they are people who face their problems and at some point make a decision to move past them.”

“People in Africa have a well-deserved reputation for being happy. This may explain why: there is no word in Swahili for "sarcasm" therefore Africans have no concept of saying something and having it mean a playfully snide version of the opposite.”

Will Bowen Just set up my Goodreads profile. My new book "Happy This Year" will be out in a few weeks and I've got several more projects in the works. Heading to Rome next week, then Taiwan, China and New York. Life is good. I enjoy meeting, learning from and helping others all over the world.
