THE JOY SO­LU­TION

Women's Health Australia - - ED’S NOTE - Jac­qui Mooney Ed­i­tor @Jac­quimooney jacq­mooney

Last­ing hap­pi­ness. It’s some­thing ev­ery sin­gle one of us strives for. And re­cently I read a fan­tas­tic book that flipped the whole idea of hap­pi­ness on its head. The premise? That it’s pos­si­ble to find in­ner peace even in the face of some of life’s big­gest chal­lenges. As jour­nal­ist, au­thor and self-con­fessed ‘se­rial sur­vivor’ Amy Mol­loy writes in her fab new re­lease The World Is A Nice Place: How to Over­come Ad­ver­sity, Joy­fully, it’s all about putting a slightly dif­fer­ent lens on the world and choos­ing to see even the hard­est mo­ments as a chance for growth. “In my ex­pe­ri­ence, early strug­gles can cre­ate emo­tion­ally in­vin­ci­ble adults who have more com­pas­sion, self-con­fi­dence, self­aware­ness and re­silience than those ‘lucky’ peo­ple who have never been tested,” she says. In short, choose to see ad­ver­sity as a teach­ing tool, and you’ll slowly but surely re­alise you’re ca­pa­ble of much more than you know. Whether that’s mov­ing to the other side of the world, chuck­ing in your cor­po­rate job, re­view­ing your re­la­tion­ships or fol­low­ing your pas­sions. And, re­ally, what’s not to love about that?
