about this item

"Open Randomly: Fortune Cookies for the Soul" is a collection of sixty of the most popular blog posts from Ally Hamilton’s personal growth, happiness and wellness blog on Part spiritual self-help, part advice column, the posts are grouped in categories, such as “The Relationship You’re Having with Yourself”, “Old Wounds/Current Problems”, and “Anger, Betrayal, and Taking Things Personally.” The posts are 2-3 pages long (perfect for before-bed reading, while you’re waiting at the doctor’s office, or when you need to take a quick break to center yourself), and the book is designed so that you can open to any page, and find your “topic of the day". Of course, you can also read it from cover-to-cover, but if you open it randomly, it’s kind of like a fortune cookie for your soul. The book tackles big issues, but the posts are down-to-earth with a healthy does of humor. This is spirituality for those of us who are never moving to a cave, but are looking for tools to feel happy and at ease in this fast-paced world. In order to be comfortable in our own skin, we have to be at peace with ourselves, but many people are fighting an internal battle. The quality of their inner voice is harsh and unforgiving. They feel stuck personally or professionally. Relationships are difficult, and rife with conflict, confusion and dissatisfaction. They aren’t sure what lights them up and brings them joy, or they are, but don’t know how to bring more of that into their daily lives. They’ve tried things the way we’ve all been taught—work hard, accrue money and stuff, diet so you look right, and eventually it will all pay off, only to find out that it doesn’t. This book is for anyone who could use support making shifts toward living with enthusiasm, gratitude and joy. It's for those who can relate to the ups and downs of life, loss, relationships, the complex nature of being human, and the incredulity that we are all here, having this amazing experience being human, together.
