THE JOY SOLUTION
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?
