Is this it? Why does life seem so unfair?

It's easy to see others living our dreams. It's easy to feel held back, misunderstood and invisible, but there comes a time in our lives when we just can't take it anymore. This is when we need answers and the confirmation that who we think we are can change.

The pain of jealousy and envy grew too much for Kelly Martin when she saw friends, family and strangers passing her by in every single area of her life. Feeling crushed by the weight of the 'comparison junkie' she cried out for answers. How could she feel good enough when she felt knee-deep in poverty and loneliness and when she carried a bag called 'I feel like a failure' on her back?

'When Everyone Shines But You' (Book 1 in 'The Shine Series') was born out of a desperate desire for relief from the pain of depression and anxiety. Kelly sat down one day and asked her heart for answers that her mind was unable to bring. She longed for wisdom and knowledge, and it came.

'When Everyone Shines But You' takes the reader through everyday life challenges in a way that shows how to handle life's stresses in a kinder and more intuitive way.

It's not a fast-food approach to personal or spiritual growth, because it takes commitment to take this path, but sometimes life encourages us into the depths of our life's journey. If you want change, it has to begin from within.

In Book 1 in 'The Shine Series' you will:

  • Discover why positive thinking does not work.
  • Explore your relationship with feelings such as rage, envy and sadness.
  • See how mindful living can consistently bring relief.
  • Recognise the gift in using frustration as a motivation to step forward.
  • Give up the 'fast food' approach to personal growth and grow more naturally.
  • Learn how to experience alone time as sacred instead of painful.
  • Understand how trying to control your world has been re-enforcing your story.

About the Author:

Kelly Martin began her writing journey in 2007 when she started questioning her reality via her blog 'Kelly Martin Speaks'. A passionate writer and sharer of information, she had this burning desire to know who she was beyond the suffering of the previous 30 years. From an early age she was very shy and experienced anxiety that prevented her doing many things young people got to do and this continued into her adult life. She avoided social group settings and nearly missed graduating from University because she was unable to give presentations due to intense fear. So she has made it her life's work to make peace with who she is and to encourage others through a process of embracing being human. She always felt that the pain and fear of her human story held a message, and through beginning a process of mindful living, she began to understand that all her perceived flaws were actually gifts and needed tenderness not constant criticism. She now writes on ThankTheNow.com, and her own blog KellyMartinSpeaks.co.uk and KellyMartin.co.uk. Kelly currently lives in Gloucester in the UK with her best friend Mike and enjoys walks in nature, visiting new places and playing with her visiting cat.

Review:

"When Everyone Shines But You by Kelly Martin is not just another self-help book lining the shelf, telling you to think positive or obey the laws of attraction to get anything you want...This book is the wake-up call you need to stop what you're doing and take a deep breath...Martin wants you to look deep within yourself and fully understand that everything will be okay, so long as you don't have such a death grip on trying to control every aspect of your world. Your world will still be your world - you'll just be happier in it by the end of When Everyone Shines But You." - Readers' Favorite

Book Description CreateSpace Independent Publishing Platform. Paperback. Condition: New. This item is printed on demand. 180 pages. Dimensions: 8.5in. x 5.5in. x 0.4in.Is this it Why does life seem so unfair Its easy to see others living our dreams. Its easy to feel held back, misunderstood and invisible, but there comes a time in our lives when we just cant take it anymore. This is when we need answers and the confirmation that who we think we are can change. After a lifetime of comparing with others it takes courage to step out from behind the rock and change. When everyone around you appears to shine while you feel hidden and misunderstood, there comes a time to say goodbye to the story of Im not good enough. When Everyone Shines But You is a new non-fiction book by passionate writer and blogger Kelly Martin. Kelly had lived the last thirty years not feeling good enough, feeling like a failure, and watching as people her own age and even younger appeared to be passing her by in terms of confidence, career, relationships and prosperity. As she neared 40, something began to stir inside, an unresolved sense of Is this it and so a huge quest began, to find answers and this book was part of that quest. When Everyone Shines But You takes the reader on a journey. In each chapter the author sheds light on topics from rage and jealousy to money and loneliness and so much more. This is not a positive thinking book. Kelly is a passionate advocate of the present moment. She discourages any ideas of creating your own reality or the law of attraction. Instead she brings the reader back to the present moment, in which permission is given to be completely human. Unlike most self-help books, in which you are seen to be broken and need fixing, here you are given permission to be who you are, as you are, warts and all, negative as well as positive. No more trying to fix you. No more saying affirmations when you are not feeling them. No more trying to create your reality. It is time for awakening to who you really are - not who you think you need to be. Discover why positive thinking does not work. Explore your relationship with feelings such as rage, envy and sadness. See how mindful living can consistently bring relief. Recognise the gift in using frustration as a motivation to step forward. Give up the fast food approach to personal growth and grow more naturally. Learn how to experience alone time as sacred instead of painful. Understand how trying to control your world has been re-enforcing your story. The author explains that there is a natural flow to life, and that by allowing this flow we can achieve far more than by trying to control and manipulate. It is time for awakening to who you really are not who you think you need to be. This item ships from La Vergne,TN. Paperback. Seller Inventory # 9781499698886
