Certain books have found their way into my life at times I needed them most. In 2009, my doctor diagnosed me with clinical depression, but instead of turning to prescription drugs, I turned to the bookstore. For the next couple of years, I went on an inward personal journey, inhaling self-help books, traveling the world for insights, visiting healing centers and gurus, learning new tools, and documenting my journey, which opened me up to the beauty of writing. Today I am depression-free and living my dream life as a travel writer, author, and happiness coach.
I’m even writing my own book now, about my journey to happiness. Authors were some of my best teachers, inspiring me to follow my heart and be true to me.
Here are my recommendations to help you on your journey to fulfillment and happiness. I owe my happiness to these books. They truly changed my life. Maybe they will do the same for you.
