Things I Want My Daughters to Know: A Small Book about the Big Issues in Life (Hardcover)

$19.99
Usually Ships in 1-5 Days

Description


From a beloved lifestyle philosopher and mother, a small book of wisdom about the big questions of life, from "Be careful what you give up" to "When you've made your point, sit down".

"My mother gave me milk; I have tried to give my daughters milk and honey. Milk is our basic need; honey is the fun, the happiness, the joy."

Thus Alexandra Stoddard introduces her new book of simple, profound truths for joyful living. Like her strong–selling Choosing Happiness, this small book illuminates a big idea. Stoddard, a mother, grandmother, and author of more than 25 books on personal fulfilment, shares a series of succinctly–stated principles worth living by. Each statement is fleshed out in a few brief, useful paragraphs. By turns wise ("Pain is inevitable; suffering is a choice"), controversial ("Don't feel guilty about your feelings toward your parents, stepparents, or in–laws"), affirming ("You don't have to prove anything to anyone"), and humorous ("When you discover something you love, stock up"), these short pieces cut to the essence of what's important and are oases of clarity amid life's chaos. Perfect for new graduates, new mothers, and as a treasured gift from woman to woman.
