#SelfHelpBookReview - 'Happy' by Fearne Cotton

I have always been a big fan of Fearne Cotton and when last year I heard she had written a book ‘Happy’ I was keen to read it and popped it on my reading list. So at the beginning of this month, I decided to purchase the audiobook because I knew I was travelling quite a bit and I love Fearne’s energy when she talk’s and wanted to hear this come through.

#SelfHelpBookReview - The Secret by Rhonda Byrne

#SelfHelpBookReview - The Secret by Rhonda Byrne

Due to my hospital admission, last month I missed the #SelfHelpBookReview for June. So this is now the 6th instalment this year.

I have decided to review a popular book 'The Secret' by Rhonda Byrne. Now I read this 4 years ago and I don’t think I was quite ready for it but deep down I do believe in the ‘Law of Attraction’. I decided this time to listen to the audiobook and read the book at the same time and I must say I liked the combination.

#UroStories - Phil Esgate

#UroStories - Phil Esgate

Today we have Phil Esgate who is 59 from Standish (UK) sharing his story. Now I personally have a lot to thank this man because last year when I started my blog, he sent me an email informing me about the' 'Urostomy Awareness' group that he admins with Pam. Before then I had no idea there was a support network online for urostomies let alone ostomies. Due to this my own acceptance of my stomas has improved because of this identification. Phil and Pam do such an amazing job with the group and it is an honour to share Phil's story.

Welcome to the 5th instalment of my monthly series #SelfHelpBookReview. I am delighted I have started this series because It has encouraged me to read more and I can't believe I have read five books this year.

So last month I was struggling to balance everything and felt I had nothing left in the tank to give to anybody else. Until Stephie from Colitis To Ostomy suggested to read "The Self-care Project by Jayne Hardy" and I have to say it has helped. So I thought I would review this book for May!
