Dr.Robert  Schuller was an American Christian televangelist, pastor, motivational speaker, and author. In his five decades of television, Schuller was principally known for the weekly Hour of Power television program.


โžก๏ธIn a society of quick fixes and instant gratification, it seems true happiness is just around the next bend or our โ€˜Ifโ€™ step we take. We tend to attach our โ€˜Ifโ€™ steps with materialistic things.

โžก๏ธThe fact actually is the happiness of the world in cumulative will not offer the wholeness that makes one feel contented or satisfied.

โžก๏ธDr.Schuller shares that this cycle of frustation, regret and disappointment can be overcomed by just 8 simple yet powerful โ€œBe-Happy Attitudesโ€

โžก๏ธDonโ€™tโ€™ ever get trapped into saying โ€œwhy me, why me?โ€. There are so many others in much greater needs than ourselves and only when we can look outward towards others can we begin to heal and feel the Grace of God.

โžก๏ธInstead of searching around for happiness, just reflect on your inner and youโ€™ll know that the basic root value of oneโ€™s soul is happiness that lies within.

๐ŸŒผThe book Be-Happy Attitudes basically is a self-help genre that revolves around the Christian literature. 8 positive attitudes are listed within the book, which makes us realise that these are actually our core nature of soul.

๐ŸŒผThe book somewhere made me relate with law of attraction. What we feed our sub-concious mind, what we keep repeating knowingly or unknowingly we are caught within that trap! Thus, think positive and  speak positive, and you will see the change around.

๐ŸŒผFeed yourself with happiness and never make your happiness dependent on the outside world. You just live once, why ponder over things that make you sad?


๐ŸŒž Looking for a light self help read and want a sort of relaxed vibes with positivity around, this one would be a best pick for you.

BOOK REVIEW: The fault in our stars

BOOK REVIEW: The fault in our stars


PUBLISHED ON: Jan 10, 2012

GENRE: Young adult novel, Realistic fiction

The book ‘The fault in our stars’ revolves around two teenagers who are dying of cancer.

Hazel Grace Lancaster, a 16 year old with thyroid cancer is forced to attend the support group by her mother. The book is written from Hazel Graceโ€™s point of view. She meets a guy Augustus Waters, who attends the same group to support his friend Issac who has eye cancer. He is 17, who lost his right leg due to osteosarcoma.

Both of them find a spark between them. They spend a lot of time together and the story begins at a point where both agree to read each otherโ€™s favorite book. Hazel shares about her favorite novel โ€˜An Imperial Afflictionโ€™ by Peter Van Houten, a story of a cancer-stricken girl. She was so obsessed with the book and the one thing that disturbs her was that the book ended without a conclusion. Hazel was so curious to know what had happened to the characters of the book in the end. She waits for so long for the writer to complete the book and leaves so many e-mails to the writer. Nothing seemed to work.

On the recommendation of Hazel, Augustus reads it and he likes the book and has the same curiosity to know the conclusion. He somehow finds a way to contact the writer and wants Hazel to hear out the conclusion directly to him in person. The story progresses on to a trip to Amsterdam to meet the author. Itโ€™s a trip which leads both of them more closely but turns out to be an awful experience upon the authorโ€™s behavior.

The end of the story breaks the readerโ€™s heart by the death of Augustus, who made Hazelโ€™s life brighter. On the whole, the book emphasizes the struggle cancer teens undergo and the beautiful relationship that blooms between them.

The fault in our stars is one of the modest love stories, beautifully portrayed in a soul-stirring manner.
