From a beloved lifestyle philosopher and mother, a small book of wisdom about the big questions of life, from "e;Be careful what you give up"e; to "e;When you've made your point, sit down"e;. "e;My mother gave me milk; I have tried to give my daughters milk and honey. Milk is our basic need; honey is the fun, the happiness, the joy."e; Thus Alexandra Stoddard introduces her new book of simple, profound truths for joyful living. Like her strong-selling Choosing Happiness, this small book illuminates a big idea. Stoddard, a mother, grandmother, and author of more than 25 books on personal fulfilment, shares a series of succinctly-stated principles worth living by. Each statement is fleshed out in a few brief, useful paragraphs. By turns wise ("e;Pain is inevitable; suffering is a choice"e;), controversial ("e;Don't feel guilty about your feelings toward your parents, stepparents, or in-laws"e;), affirming ("e;You don't have to prove anything to anyone"e;), and humorous ("e;When you discover something you love, stock up"e;), these short pieces cut to the essence of what's important and are oases of clarity amid life's chaos. Perfect for new graduates, new mothers, and as a treasured gift from woman to woman.
