Chicken Soup for the Soul: Tough Times, Tough People reminds us that tough times won’t last, but tough people will. Tough People is all about overcoming adversity, pulling together, making do with less, facing challenges, and finding new joys in a simpler life. This new collection shares tales of people who have been laid off, lost their homes, and endured wrenching life changes, but discovered the underlying gifts in their new situations. More time at home with family, creative “staycations,” more satisfying job opportunities, and renewed gratitude for health and life are just a few of the silver linings these survivors have learned to cherish.
My Thoughts: I don’t know about you but for me, times just seem a little tougher than they’ve used to be. It’s nice to be able to pick up a book like Chicken Soup for the Soul: Tough Times, Tough People and get a bit of inspiration throughout my day. Real stories from peoples everyday lives like our own can be one the greatest up lifters in this day and age next to the Bible.
This book is filled with 101 stories about overcoming the economic crisis and other daily challenges. It’s very easy to browse through, you can read it straight or like me, pick through the various categories to whatever suits your mood/situation.
This book is wonderful coffee table, bedside, or bathroom reader, in my opinion. It would make a great gift for anybody that you know!
