This sounds like a really interesting book! I think everyone can relate to the times when everything around you seems to be going wrong! I love the apple analogy as well! Thanks for hosting :) I hope you have a great Friday & weekend!

Interesting read!

I wonder how that works. Things happen to everyone so we all need help now and then.

I think that's a nice, sweet rephrasing of "Suck it up" which has always been my motto. 12 years of cancer and I'm still trying new things and learning.

Things go wrong for all of us. It's how we handle it and come out of it that matters most.

I don't read self help very much but I love the idea of this. It's definitely something we all need to be reminded of periodically.
