"Your Happily Ever After" by Lauren Jobson is a captivating book that guides us on how to find joy and appreciate ourselves exactly as we are. Lauren teaches us that true happiness comes not from material things or achievements but from within ourselves. The book is filled with engaging stories and simple activities that help us explore what makes us unique and teach us to take pride in our individuality. It reminds us that every day holds opportunities to move closer to our dreams, even though small acts like smiling in the mirror or offering kind words to others. Overall, "Your Happily Ever After" inspires us to believe in ourselves and pursue our dreams enthusiastically and joyfully.

 Are you ready for a thrilling challenge? Let's embark on a journey of self-discovery! Grab a piece of paper and a pencil, and let's delve into two intriguing aspects: how you spend your time and how you spend your money.
Time Adventure: Think about your favourite way to spend a day. What do you do most? Playing, reading, or helping at home? Those activities show what you care about most!
Money Detective: Now, think about the last few things you bought with your allowance or money you received. Were they books, toys, or maybe gifts for friends or family? What you choose to buy can tell you what you truly value.
Share your discoveries with a friend or family member and see if they can guess what's important to you. Or even better, share it with us here! I would love for you to share this with me, @wellnessofmukti. Let's chat about what makes them special to you!

Why I Recommend It:

As a wellness and personal growth coach, I'm constantly searching for books that don't just motivate but also offer tangible, actionable strategies. Lauren's writing is clear and relatable, breaking down complex ideas into something you can easily understand and apply. The exercises at the end of each chapter make you pause and reflect on your life.

How the book changed me

I have read and listened to Lauren Jobson's book Your Happily Ever After, which genuinely changed my thoughts about happiness and who I am.

This book showed me that true happiness isn't about having it all or achieving every goal; it's about embracing who you are inside and out and appreciating the unique qualities that make you special. Lauren Jobson uses engaging stories to highlight how our uniqueness makes us extraordinary. Remember to have fun on this journey we call life!

Since reading the book, I've started to appreciate myself more. I've learned to be kinder to myself when things don't go exactly as planned and to enjoy my own company by doing things that make me feel good, like listening to music or reading. It's like finding a treasure inside me that I never knew was there!

"Your Happily Ever After" has inspired me to help others find their happiness. I want to teach kids and adults that every day is a new chance to be happy with who they are and to chase their dreams with a big smile.

So, why not read this magical book and start discovering the great things about yourself? I bet you'll find your own happiness, just like I did!

Let's explore a unique idea from the book "Your Happily Ever After" by Lauren Jobson, called "Coming Home" to Yourself.

"Coming home" means getting to know and appreciate who you are inside. It's like becoming your own best friend! Lauren shows us that knowing and loving ourselves makes us feel happy and safe, no matter where we are.

By understanding our feelings and dreams and loving ourselves, we can make good choices and treat others kindly. Think of it as having a cozy little space in your heart where you always feel secure and loved.

So, remember, learning to love yourself is a beautiful journey, and it starts with simple steps like recognising what makes you smile and what you're grateful for.

Male and Female Energy

Have you ever thought about how we all have different kinds of energy that help us do amazing things every day? 

Lauren Jobson's book discusses two types of energy: male and female. Let's explore how they're different and why both are super important!

Male energy is like being strong and brave when climbing a tall tree or standing up in class to answer a question. It helps us take action and be adventurous.

Female energy is like giving a big, comforting hug or patiently helping a friend solve a puzzle. It helps us care for others and be creative.

We all have a mix of both energies, whether you are male or female. This makes us balanced and helps us handle different situations better.

Here's a fun challenge for you:
Think about when you use your male and female energies.
Draw a picture or write a story about a time you used strength to do something brave or kindness to help someone.
Please share it with your family, or even us!
Let's celebrate how using both energies makes us wonderful and unique! Can't wait to see your awesome stories and drawings!

How It Can Transform You:

Whether aiming for significant life changes or simply wanting to savour life's daily joys, "Your Happily Ever After" provides both the inspiration and the practical tools you need. It's like having a personal coach guiding you through the pages!

Key Takeaways:

  • Dream Big, Start Small: Lauren empowers us to turn our dreams into reality with manageable, step-by-step actions that make big goals achievable.
  • Cherish the Little Things: The book teaches us to find joy in every day—a quiet morning, a laugh with a friend, or the peaceful moments in between.
