101 Simple secrets to keep your hope alive - a book review


Today I decided to rearrange my bookshelf. How we have changed in the modern times, always reading ebooks in iPad, Kindle, laptop or desktops or smartphones and almost stopped reading books in the old fashioned way. I was surprised finding so many books in my shelf both in English and in the Malayalam language, our mother tongue.

So today's post is a book review.
The title of the book is 101 Simple secrets to keep your hope alive. 

A simple book, nothing complicated. I forgot when I bought it, I think it was when I made a trip to Bangalore in 2002. I do not remember reading this book in detail anytime. What a lapse it was from my side! This book is a must read. It has many beautiful and inspiring quotes by great people like Aristotle, William Shakespeare, Mother Theresa and the like. Awesome...!

The book starts with a proverb 'a cheerful heart is good medicine'. :)

Laugh more - especially at yourself. Laughter is the cheapest, safest, and most reliable medication there is. 

Another one - Appreciating what you have is one way to keep your hopes up.

Fall in love with God.

Pleasure in moderation relaxes and tempers the spirit. I scream, you scream, we all scream for ice cream! :)

Give hope to others - it will do wonders for you too.

This book has inspiring quotes, practical insights and powerful reminders that will help us find hope when nothing is there to be hopeful. It helps in finding out God's presence in our life especially during a crisis. I would recommend this book to everyone, just keep it in your library, one day you or someone would benefit from it.

Originally published by the Honor Books, Colorado. Compiled by Betsy Williams.

If anyone of you has read this wonderful book, please share your opinion here.
  • Finding hope in the midst of crises is not easy. Such books really shine a beacon of hope when dark clouds of hopelessness cover life. Never lose hope. Always believe, there are plenty of solutions for each and every problem in life, be hopeful!

Beauty of Nature, butterflies - a poem

Hopping, singing, dancing, caressing, not missing anyone 
Enjoying the beauty, satisfying all, tasting the sweet nectar 
Now I know why they sing, dance, radiate color, smiling 
Lucky you, make them happier, let them sparkle with joy! 

Who weaved those colors on your garment, magnificent? 
Who taught you those graceful movements, the melody? 
Who sent you to sprinkle delight, satisfy, instill vitality? 
Who created you beautiful, lovely, making others envious? 

Allow me to touch you sweet, let me feel the velvety wings 
Let me come closer, let me hear you singing the divine tune 
The chorus too, by the already blossomed, dancing beauties
Let us all sing together, with the soft, gentle breeze around!

Come every day, this is yours, all yours, enjoy, all the time
There are many to blossom, in the days to come, all beauties
Let us try new tunes, new chorus, radiate warmth, joy, and love 
It is you who makes it vibrant, colorful, the blessing of nature!
