“This is ‘Eat, Pray, Love’ for the rest of us. Don’t just read this book. DO this book.
In Journey to Joy, Christalee figures out what too many of us never really understand: that happiness isn’t “out there”, that joy isn’t a thing that you go find somewhere, that it’s not behind the next promotion, the bigger house, the smaller butt. It’s something we create ourselves, with the thoughts we choose to think and the actions we choose to take.
Maybe you’ve already read a lot of self-help books but nothing has changed. That’s why I say don’t just read this book. DO this book! Create your own Journey to Joy using her blueprint. Write your own list and spend 21 days on each topic. Maybe yours will look a lot like hers, maybe it will be completely different, but the important thing is that it’s your list and that you DO it. We can learn things intellectually but until we actually apply them, we won’t really “know” them and own them. Clarity comes from doing, not just reading and thinking.
Christalee reminds us to actively create our lives, rather than just sleep walking through our days, reacting to everything that happens to us. And she reminds us to listen to that inner voice, to trust our essential self. We just have to get quiet enough to hear it and brave enough to follow.”
