By Bruce Mulkey
Your happiness is not dependent on what’s happening out there; it depends on what’s happening inside you. It’s not a matter of chance; it’s a matter of choice. Whenever you really choose to do so, you can be happy. How about right now?
It took me longer than I thought to read Happiness Now because one of the first pages said to do what makes me happy – and do it right now! So I took a nap in the hammock. The other reason it took a while to read it is that I was enjoying it so much. Bottom line: I loved it!

I Do! I Do! The Marriage Vow Workbook is an inspirational resource for creating compelling vows for a marriage, civil union, commitment or recommitment. Endorsed by Harville Hendrix, Ph.D., author of Getting the Love You Want and cocreator of Imago Relationship Therapy, this workbook helps couples craft vows that will serve them not only during the ceremony itself but throughout their lives together. As a result of reading I Do! I Do! The Marriage Vow Workbook, completing the exercises, and writing their marriage vows, couples have the opportunity to:
- Awaken to the deepest reasons for joining their lives in marriage
- Envision what they want most from their life together
- Initiate a ritual to sustain their marriage for many years to come
- Create a loving, committed partnership that’s truly ideal for both partners
This creative workbook will be valuable to any couple planning their marriage or recommitment. Furthermore, the post-ceremony guidance will help them transform their wedding into their marriage. I highly recommend it .

The essays in this book were written to reaffirm our ability to create the world we wish to see. Sages and mystics have long noted that peace begins within each of us–in what we think, what we say, and what we do. We must understand that conflict is inevitable but war is always optional if we want our leaders to move away from the outmoded precept that might makes right.
An extraordinary addition to the ongoing dialogue about the state of our nation and world, and what can be done about it.
