A BOOK REVIEW
The Happiness of Pursuit takes us on a journey. It takes us on its author’s traveling adventures, the endeavors of normal individuals taking big risks, and motivates its readers to start passionately pursuing dangerous new possibilities.
Every once in a while a book comes along that motivates us to embrace life and then there are those special books that reminds us that we are doing matters and encourages us not to give up. Chris Guillebeau’s new book does both! For me personally, the book was a reassurance that my recent quest of blogging and writing my first book is exactly what I should be pursuing. My favorite quotes include:
The middle of the quest can be the hardest part. Don’t give up too soon!
Cuillebeau’s inspiring words reminded me that the quest I took on to encourage Christian boys and men (in the midst of cultural or Christian masculinity stereotypes) is a worthy pursuit. They must hear from someone that they are NOT a male fail. I also can’t give up when it starts getting hard. The pursuit is worth the hard work, criticism, and sacrifice and part of the blessing is the journey itself. It is the risky that makes it an adventure and with no adventure, you truly aren’t living!
If you feel like your life is stuck and taking you nowhere, this book is for you. If you want a guidebook to help you figure out who you are and what to do with your passions, I highly recommend this book. OR, if you are like me and you recently took on something big and risky and you are wondering if you need to keep pursuing, wait no longer and grab a copy today. Blogging for Books provided this book to me for free in exchange for an honest review.
