Description
Starting out, starting over, or stuck? Making your way into this complicated world can be difficult. Flow Forward: Find Your Way, Grow Resilient, and Enjoy Your Life offers compact messages that guide you into a more resilient way to navigate life. Rather than suggesting major life overhauls, Debra Dane demonstrates how minor shifts in your thoughts and actions can create powerful, positive, change. She encourages you to make a series of these shifts so that you, naturally and fluidly, shape your life into an honest reflection of who you are and what you believe. Life’s bumps and blunders don’t have to get in your way. You can do more than bounce back – you can Flow Forward. “a warm and substantive book from an excellent new writer." -Rick Hanson, PhD, author of "Buddha's Brain: The Practical Neuroscience of Happiness, Love, and Wisdom" "a wonderful book filled with real life wisdom, compassion for others, and a recognition that being kind to ourselves may be one of the most important skills we develop in life. Anyone who has ever wondered how to successfully navigate the unpredictable waves of life will find some inspiration in these pages. It was especially gratifying to see that both the joys and disappointments of life are welcomed as necessary elements of a life lived well. Debra Dane helps the reader to realize that all experiences in life can be “messengers” and they can teach us how to live a life that is deeper, fuller, and more significant." -William Compton, PhD, author of “Eastern Psychology: Buddhism, Hinduism, and Taoism” "a well-rounded, empowering and unpretentious guide to success in life ... Dane’s straightforward and no-nonsense approach to facing life’s ups and downs by learning to love and trust yourself and respect your feelings, or what Dane calls “Messengers,” is gentle and encouraging; while her language is clear and concepts flow easily from one to another.  The book is equally well organized to facilitate the fluidity of the book’s ideas. Each of the twelve chapters that address an aspect of internal development, such as Growing Self-Sufficient, Perseverance, Rejuvenating and Tolerance, are further subdivided into sections to make for easy-to-digest concepts and steps. These concepts are further illuminated by brief and vignettes that reveal the author’s own past struggles and epiphanies. ...Dane’s ideas about being everything you need to grow in the world, and her realistic views about pain, and obstacles in life that make one resilient are down-to-earth, credible and empowering. Metaphors about rejections being inoculations that make us more resilient, or temporary opportunities and assistance being ships or bridges that we use to move us from one place to another but don’t rely on permanently, are both evocative and effective. ...Overall, the coherent organization and unfussy language of the book make it conducive to a wide audience ranging from inspiring reading for high school students to adults." -IndieReader
