Chicken Soup for the Soul: Tough Times, Tougher People by Jack Canfield, Mark Victor Hansen & Amy Newmark


Description from book;
Inspiration, hope, and support for overcoming adversity, pulling together, making do with less, facing challenges, and finding new joys in a simpler life.
Chicken Soup for the Soul: Tough Times, Tough People will encourage, inspire, and support you through all types of difficult situations, whether financial, health-related, family or personal issues. Read 101 personal stories from real people about meeting their challenges:
* downsizing and enjoying a simpler life
* finding the silver lining in layoffs and other economic troubles
* living with illness and disability
* surviving natural disasters
* grief and healing
* the value of family and friends
* and 10 bonus stories about using faith to pull through


My take on the book selection;
I was utterly captivated from the first story. There were so many I could connect with, and in so many different situations. I had an array of emotions, but mostly compassion. The stories I couldn't connect to, I felt I learned from. Example; I love the term "staycation." When low on funds, and needing a break, tour things in your city, such as National parks, or a museum. You'd be surprised how uplifting it can make you, and you don't have to leave home. Where most vacations are costly, and far from home. I recommend you read the book, you may be as moved as I am.

  1. My husband and I have had a couple "staycations" but we never thought to call them that at the time. My co-worker did recently though and it sounded so fun, lol! I love the Chicken Soup for the Soul Books!

REVIEW:
Such great animation!
There was always something going on in this movie. Even though it was a story I have seen played out a million times and a million different ways, they all are different too. This had more of a story. It was very magical and is definitely fun for the whole family.
Want to point out, Max, the dog, stole the show for me. He is so adorable, even if animation. Such a good dog.
This is one of those Christmas movies that you really can enjoy all year round. It has enough laughs, fun and morals to be played anytime. Plus there is nothing wrong with Christmas cheer in February.
