The Pursuit of the
Finding Opportunities for Happiness in the Ever-Present Now
Revised Edition 2019
It all began with a personal epiphany that occurred in the most unlikely of circumstances. The epiphany led to a personal journey that changed the way I look at the world and live my life.
I enjoyed reading the book and was fascinated that his thoughts for opportunities for happiness began when he was brushing his teeth. I enjoyed his perspective on the process of brushing his teeth, and that giving it more thought actually improved the quality of the way he brushed his teeth. That also led to more interesting thoughts on everyday life. I found the book worth reading and passed it on to my dental hygienist last week.
