People routinely get knocked down or out. That’s life. But the essence of courage is summoning the grit to get back up, dust yourself off and get right back in the game. In her stirring yet commonsense guidebook, Joy Baldridge pays eloquent homage to the inspiration of human resilience. She provides a series of mental and spiritual exercises. Few are new or revelatory, but her book is a handy compendium. Her relentless belief in the power of positive self-speech may seem somewhat mired in the 1980s, but Baldridge offers coping techniques, strategies and problem-solving tactics with her “Golden Nuggets,” “Joy Gems” and collected quotations. If a spoonful of sugar helps the medicine go down, this fun, easy-to-read but eloquent overview on the necessity of positive thinking and mindfulness offers some charming spoonfuls. Baldridge’s upbeat spirit, encouragement and enthusiasm will, in keeping with the title of her uplifting book, bring you joy.
