Chicken Soup for the Soul - The Power of Positive

Review on Chicken Soup for the Soul The Power of Positive

When I started reading this book I had no idea what I was in store for. This book has definitely taught me a lot about being positive and all the different aspects of being positive.
This book is compromised of 101 short stories that are divided up into 11 different sections. These sections included The Power of Giving, The Power of Challenging yourself, ect. Each section had about 8 stories within it that focused on that area of being positive.
There are so many inspirational stories that I loved in this book that it is so hard for me to find just a few to mention.
One of my favorites is called "Thanks to CF." This story talked about a young family whose first child was diagnosed with Cystic Fibrosis when he was born. At first the family really struggled accepting that their young son was sick and would need medical treatments his whole life. In the end they feel blessed that their son has CF because he has become like a household celebrity to his 6 younger siblings who all think he is the coolest! They talk about all the many blessings they have seen that have come about because of his diagnosis. This story really hit me because I don't think that I would be able to easily find the positives in such a hard disease. It really made me realize that there is always something positive in every situation even if we can't see it at the time.
I honestly could not tell you one negative thing about this book. I think it is definitely one that everybody should take the time to read. It really has some great stories that can totally change your perspective about life. I know that I will now be trying a lot harder to find the positives in every situation in my life!
