Guest Book Review: How Love Wins – The Power of Mindful Kindness by Doug Carnine

I’m pleased to bring you another book review brought to you by my fabulous guest reviewer, Sharon. Today, it’s a self-help title about the power of positivity and the way that actively practicing kindness can help direct your life in a more mindful and nurturing direction… Enjoy!

I love self-help books. I believe a reader can always take away something helpful from them.

The author states a well-known – yet difficult to actualize – truth: a simple action can shape our lives in very complex and far-reaching ways. That action: being kind. Kindness offers a plethora of useful outcomes, yet maintaining an attitude toward life and living that is positive and kind seems unnecessarily difficult a lot of the time. Being mindful in order to experience the myriad benefits of a truly kind life often seems to escape us though. In this lovely book, Dr. Doug Carnine uses the popular 12- Step Process to help us realize a transformation in our own lives so we can obtain and live a more mindful existence.

His major takeaway: We can be kind by being more aware (mindful) of our environment. The world as we know it, surely can use more kindness.

The author puts a great spin on this process by involving Hospice patients and prisoners. The aforementioned appear have a minimal reason for mindfulness, kindness, and love for others. Yet regardless of our circumstances in life, the ability to nurture ourselves will bring about better relationships, more compassion, and a definite quality of life improvement for everyone we encounter – ourselves included. This ability to embrace others and ourselves in a loving fashion is made practically achievable through the explanation of many helpful skills and life hacks that Dr. Carnine explains in the book.

I loved the ease of reading this book and the journal writing introduced by the author. It offers simple skills and approaches that readers can incorporate immediately into their own lives. What a wonderful world we could live in if everyone incorporated the authors’ lessons to obtain the ultimate goal of Love!
