Living with inner joy and meaningful relationships is possible with the right approach. Two professional counselors provide readers with their approach to making this happen, which they call Discovering to Be Me, thanks to their new book. They describe their approach for life change as giving people “permission to awaken to new meaning and direction in their lives. It challenges theories about the foundation of a self. It involves expanding one’s awareness.”
“If Not Joy Now Then When?” challenges people to find the courage to take steps to creating a new life that will be more fulfilling – taking charge of their own happiness to gain satisfying relationships, new spiritual meaning and excitement and vitality in work and life experiences. Step by step, the book covers the three interactive areas of Discovering to Be Me: awakening, characterized by a sense of uneasiness with the current life; twilight, a state between past and future learning; and engagement, taking action to work on change for the better. Through real-life case studies to illustrate their points, the book helps people choose how to face the complexity of life and choose how they want to live. Simple illustrations by artist Pattie Fimple and a glossary describing terms enhance this potentially life-changing book.
