This post is dedicated to anyone out there facing an insurmountable mountain in your life, needing closure to a traumatic incident or fighting hard to keep on a grip with reality – You are not alone.
“The silver linings playbook” by Matthew Quick is a positively charged (and non self-help) book constantly urging readers to find the silver lining behind the dark clouds when riding through tough times. If you find the title familiar, this book was adapted and made into a Hollywood hit that won numerous top awards, including the best actress for lead character Jennifer Lawrence.
If you have not watched the movie, you should because it is pretty awesome, but the book is even better. Featuring Pat Peoples, who just checked out of a mental institution, the novel documents his struggles as he tries to reconcile his past and present lives.
