10 Steps to Finding Your Happy Place (and Staying There) is a program to help us develop habits to grow a joyful spirit. Many of us sabotage our happiness by habits that we might not even be aware of. Identifying and changing these habits can build a reservoir of well-being to enhance our happy times and sustain us during challenging times.

Please Help Me Help
As some of you know, I released a book October 2, with the same title as my blog. (You can find out more about the book by clicking on the book in the right margin.) All the proceeds of the book are donated to Edwards Center, an organization which provides a wide range of services to adults with developmental disabilities, including my two sons with autism.
Some of you have posted lovely and very gracious reviews and interviews for which I am humbly grateful. I thought that one way I could show my thanks is to list your blogs here with links to the reviews. My hope is that readers who aren’t already familiar with your wonderful blogs will stop by for a visit.
Yes, there is a selfish aspect to this way of expressing thanks. I also hope that you, my dear blog friends, will help me spread the word about the book through sharing links and tweets of the reviews.
And if you have read the book and enjoyed it, would you consider posting a review on Amazon?
I so appreciate everyone’s help. Adults with developmental disabilities are such a vulnerable population. Edwards Center is a lifeline for them and their families, like my sons and me. Click here to visit their website and find out more about this amazing organization.
You can help me support Edwards Center by helping me get the word out about the book as we head into the holidays. It makes a perfect gift!
Here is the list of blogs on which reviews and interviews have been posted. These are all blogs that I read and enjoy. They represent a wide range of topics, so I’m sure you will find some new blogs to add to your reading list.

Besides posting a review on my blog, I bought half a dozen books for family and friends. Galen's insight into what makes us happy and how to spend more time in that place means her book is a perfect gift for the holidays.ReplyDelete
