power of meaning (book review)


I have always believed that meaning is the route to the happiness we all seek. In my own life I continue to try and find this in the simple day-to-day but also in my work as a therapist. I loved Frankl and it was nice to be reminded of him again. It also reminded me of Sisyphus, Camus and the search for meaning amidst the meaninglessness of existence. We have all our rocks but what I found most helpful was the way in which the author talked about Belonging, Purpose, Storytelling, Transcendence, Growth and Cultures of Meaning; breaking it down to digestible and accessible categories and explaining what she meant in each of them. As I started, I’ll end by saying that this book served as a reminder of all the things I already know but occasionally forget and if you need a gentle nudge in the direction of what really matters, I suggest you get yourself a copy of this fine book.

Thanks Net Galley for the opportunity to review before the published date.

I'm a woman living in London and this blog captures what lands within my sight and connects with my psyche. I expect it to evolve naturally. It is a place I shall visit from time to time and where things that I am touched by deeply will find a soft place to land. As a psychotherapist and a continuing student, most of the articles you shall find here will somehow, in some way, be related to therapy and well-being. I love comments, so feel free to add yours, whenever and however. I wish you well.
