Beschreibung:

Things fall apart. And they break sometimes. Like many of you, my journey hasn’t always been easy. Pain is very real. And so is loss. Sometimes it’s hard not to let the weight of what we carry—or the memory of what we’ve lost—take over.

Many of us know the reality of struggle, and so many people suffer in silence. It’s hard. It’s hard not to give up when we face the repeated disappointments of life. Like some of you, I’ve known loneliness. I’ve known defeat. I’ve fallen many times chasing mirages, and broken many bones making castles in life’s fading sands. Sometimes, all it took was one solid wave to destroy what I had spent years building.

So I decided to give it a voice. All of it: the tears, the pain. And the lessons. The things I saw and learned and gained along my life path needed a voice. I wanted to give back, in hopes of helping myself and others survive. But then it wasn’t just about surviving. I didn’t just want people to survive inside their storms. I wanted people to thrive inside their storms. And so I wrote, as I walked through my own.

The words found in this book became my voice and my letter to the world. They became my deepest attempt to, not just pick myself up, but others along the way. I wrote because, just as we will fall in life, so will we rise. That’s the thing about this world. It never gives us only one kind of path. There is pain. Yes. And loss. And even darkness. But there is also light. There is hope. There is beauty.

And there is also love and happiness.

Meine Meinung:

Glücklicherweise wusste ich bereits durch Online-Recherche, dass das ein kleines schmales Buch mit sehr großer Schrift ist, also wusste ich, dass es jetzt nicht mit dem Meisterwerk "Reclaim Your Heart" verglichen werden kann:


Hier sieht man, was ich mit der Größe so meine:

Aber ich liebe liebe liebe Yasmins Worte und Gedanken, deshalb stand es für mich außer Frage, dass ich auch "Love and Happiness" kaufen und lesen werde. Allerdings könnte man auch einiges von dem, was darin zu lesen ist, auf ihrer Facebook-Seite lesen, denn dort teilt sie auch schöne Sätze.

Auch für Nichtmuslime empfehlenswert!
