Publisher Description

Millions of readers have fallen in love with Ava's bestselling books...come join the family.

Fans of Brene Brown and Gretchen Rubin’s THE HAPPINESS PROJECT will love this uplifting and powerful personal story.

In 2013, Ava left a successful, six-figure career working as a conflict expert rebuilding war zones to launch herself as a writer.

What most people don’t know is that choice was born on a transformational night of self-discovery in war-torn Sierra Leone when Ava realized writing made her happy—something she hadn’t felt in a long time. Living on the street of Just Okay wasn’t good enough. She made a right turn at what she calls The Happiness Corner and never looked back.

In these reflections, Ava shares how she dared to say no to negative people and patterns in her life that drained her natural positive energy, remained positive with a best friend with cancer, discovered pursuits that increased her happiness like dancing and play dates with the neighborhood boy, and, most of all, how she chose to stay happy and spread her happiness message as a bestselling author.

Some reflections include:

Happiness is Finding Your Voice.

Happiness is Trusting the Vision.

Happiness is Saying No to Approval.

Happiness is Thriving.

I will be honest, I was hesitant to read this book but I’m really glad I did. It has been a very tough and devastating year for me and this book has really helped me learn to move forward and focus on my progress! This is a good read if you need something encouragement and focus on growth rather than perfection!
