I have found myself craving human interaction like dark chocolate after a sugar fast. Can you relate? Quarantine has taught me how much I take for granted in the context of friendship/relationship. To sit across from an empathic friend and catch up on life, get someone else’s perspective, be reminded you are not alone and there are abundant blessings to be counted and lifted up for thanksgiving-PRICELESS. When I downloaded Melanie Shankle’s, On the Bright Side in April, the listen was a tonic to my soul. Melanie reads the audible version of the book in a tone that is humorous and sympathetic. I highly recommend!
Synopsis from amazon.com:
These days, so many voices tell us what to do, what to think, and what kind of parent or friend or spouse to be that it's easy to feel overwhelmed and defeated. Somewhere in the midst of online arguments and crazy politics and the ups and downs of life, we've lost sight of the gifts that are all around us: kindness, love, mercy, and joy.
In On the Bright Side, Melanie Shankle reminds us of the unchanging principles we can count on in a changing world. These are lessons that Melanie has learned along the way about how to find all the joy that life has to offer - and why encouragement is never something to keep to ourselves. Exploring topics such as dealing with comparisons, when life doesn't turn out like we expected, and how to find your people, Melanie invites us to lead with love in all areas of our lives.
This delightful memoir highlights the joys of life told in Melanie's down to earth, relatable, and totally enjoyable style. On the Bright Side is a how-to guide to knowing - and living - what matters most.
