When my Nanny was alive she use to tell me, to read the book Chicken Soup For The Soul. Remembering why Nanny I don’t want to. When she passed away right before we all going to be together In SC I decided I would read it and see why she wanted me too.
Now I can finally understand the reason she wanted me to read it , to heal my heart and soul from all the hurt and pain I had from things going on.This collection of 101 stories is based on the belief that true testimonies of goodness and loving transformations can nourish us to the bone and heal the cynicism in our hearts. Indeed, almost every story seeps in deeply. It’s hard not to shed a tear of gratitude, feeling thrilled to have been touched and soothed so easily
This book was a real emotional roller coaster, I am glad that I finally broke down and read it. Now I understand why Nanny wanted me too. Every story has a reason, some are tear jerkers, others are cheesy, but the book was awesome. My sister is reading it now and she loves it as much I did.
Each of the stories leaves me wondering if I am going to cry on the next. And of course I do. What is Chicken Soup For The Soul? Chicken Soup for the Soul is one of the world’s favorite and most recognized storytellers. It all started more than 20 years ago when our founders compiled a book of inspirational and motivational stories that became a runaway bestseller. Since than we’ve published 250 more titles in 40 languages and sold more than 100 million books in the U.S. alone. Today we’ve evolved beyond the bookstore with super premium pet food and a line of high quality food to bring people together for healthy meals. We’ve also expanded into visual storytelling with movies, TV shows and a YouTube channel. In everything we do, our mission is the same: “changing the world one story at a time.
Sometimes the stories make sense in the chapters, like in the case of the parenting chapter containing a story “Why I chose my father to be my dad” which detailed the life of a dedicated parent. Others were not so obvious, like “Golden Buddha” in Learning to Love Yourself. Sure it was about finding that special something within, or they tried to tie it to that theme anyway, but it just didn’t click with me in that chapter representation.
“The Hugging Judge”? Come on, that sounds more like a scene from a C grade kid movie. Even so, good read at times, inspiring also …..at times. Loved this story, imagine if people went around doing this. With 250 different book titles there is bound to be one for you.
