How can we find ways to whisper happiness even under the most trying circumstances?
COLUMBIA, MD, April 04, 2018 /24-7PressRelease/ -- After years of struggling to find a voice for her story, Bunnie Riedel has published "Whispering Happiness: Finding Happiness in a World Full of Care." The inspirational book, examines what happens when the life you counted on is turned upside down; how do you go on to live in peace and happiness?
"Our lives turn on a dime," said Riedel. "Most often we do not have control of circumstances that come our way or circumstances we find ourselves in. But finding the strength to go on, to not be destroyed by our life experiences, is the most human of things we can do."
The book tells a dark tale of extreme childhood abuse, both physically and verbally, by an adoptive mother who was most likely bipolar. And later; a tale of emotional abuse in a marriage. Riedel explains how she rose above this abuse and went on to face the challenges of her life and she provides her coping mechanisms for those going through trial.
"Every day people face challenges. They lose their jobs, their loved ones, their marriages, their abilities," said Riedel. "People all around us are challenged to their breaking point. The question is, how can they or we take those challenges and make our lives meaningful, rich and full of peace and happiness?"
"There was a lot of sorrow as I struggled for 9 years to put this account together. At first, I thought I'd write it as a fiction. But then I realized I just had to just tell what happened, as straight forward and honest as I could," said Riedel. "To this day, I have sadness about the early parts of my life, but that sorrow has also made me appreciate this day, this moment, this time of peace."
