Inspirations: 101 Uplifting Stories for Daily Happiness is a powerful compilation of stories about outlooks, perceptions, attitudes, and mindsets on life. I came to the realization that often tragedy, life-threatening illness, or death of a loved is the catalyst to make positive changes in our lives. The authors have experienced these events, sharing them with readers. These stories are powerful because it provokes thinking as readers apply situations to their own lives. Positive changes can occur without having to experience the painful situations the authors have endured. As a result, readers can improve their lives in a positive and fulfilling way that otherwise may not happen with the absence of tragedy.
