The Art of Creating a Meaningful Life: One Day at a Time

The Art of Creating a Meaningful Life: One Day at a Time cover

Book Description

In 1996, Chantal Beaulieu had the kind of year that exists, for most people, only in nightmares. After losing her mother at the age of 17, she would now lose her father, her grandfather, great-grandmother and a brother. Still reeling with shock and grief, she gave birth to her first child, who was later diagnosed with Asperger's Syndrome, a form of autism.

How this remarkable young woman met these blows and transformed them into a philosophy of strong, healthy optimism is the backbone of this inspiring book. There is simple, practical wisdom here that can revive joy in the lives of parents, of children, of the world, “one day at a time.”
