YOUR BOOK BEGINNING
MY BOOK BEGINNING
"Bad Apples: How To Feel Good Even When Rotten Things Happen" is a guide to help you look deeper into your core so you can keep growing and thriving no matter what happens to you in life or how you feel.
-- Bad Apples by Dr. Lisa L. Hartwell.
Dr. Hartwell is a clinical psychologist and popular speaker who helps people address difficult issues.
Her book is described as "A Practical Guide to Dealing with Anxiety, Stress, Tough Relationships, Abuse, Sexuality, & More." It promises to teach how to deal with unhealthy people, stop negative thoughts, and be more productive.
Who doesn't need a little help with those kinds of things?
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!ReplyDelete

I wonder how that works. Things happen to everyone so we all need help now and then.ReplyDelete
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.ReplyDelete
Things go wrong for all of us. It's how we handle it and come out of it that matters most.ReplyDelete
Sounds interesting. I'd like to learn more.ReplyDelete
I could use this book.ReplyDelete

ENJOY your weekend.
