MFOB featured book: Microjoys: Finding Hope (Especially) When Life Is Not Okay
Microjoys are a practice of uncovering joy and finding hope at any moment. They are accessible to everyone, despite all else. When we hone the ability to look for them, they are always available. In Microjoys: Finding Hope (Especially) When Life Is Not Okay, Spiegel discusses the hidden wisdom, long-ago memories, subtle treasures, and ordinary delights that surround us. Spiegel first began taking note of microjoys during the most difficult year of her life—when she experienced back-to-back unprecedented and devastating losses—and she found that these fleeting moments of hope helped her move through each day with a semblance of comfort and a lot more joy.
