Welcome. The Messy Joys of Being Human is a book about me, you, and us. This book is for people who are ready to succeed at changing their stories. The good news is that you’re not alone. You have access to all the rest of us struggling with the same kinds of issues.
This community forum is for those seeking change and deeper self-awareness to come together and share their experiences. In the discussion forums below you can share your responses to the journaling prompts, or simply talk about things that came up for you within the chapter. Share your truth, and support other people’s truths with positive affirmations and compassion. This is a community for growth, spiritual health, and a collaborative journey towards being more joyful humans. It’s a place for inspiration and support, to share your good days and your hard ones, and perhaps to make new friends among the community of those who are risking change to become happier.
