“A Short Guide to a Happy Life” author Anna Quindlen

 

As a novelist and bestseller of other works, Anna Quindlen has come up with her way of showing us how she has kept a happy, nourished life, appreciating what is important and making good works a necessity for fulfillment. She uses captivating visuals and inspirational quotes such as “No man ever said on his death bed I wish I had spent more time at the office” (Senator Paul Tsongas) and “Life is what happens when you are busy making plans” (John Lennon) to inspire us to see the light in us and around us.
In her own past experiences with death, including her mom’s passing of ovarian cancer when Anne was the age of 19, she’s come to know that life can be short, unexpected, and it’s important to enjoy the view around and make the most out of every moment possible.  Accomplishments are based on these moments, not our time at the office, what we own, what our degree says, or how much we get paid.
I would recommend this book for anyone who is soul searching and could use a little inspiration.  It is possible for everyone to be happy, by just being ourselves.
