Bounce Back Better

 

Are you at a crossroad in your life? Have you experienced the loss of a loved one or the loss of your job? Did you just go through a defining moment in your life such as a major ill health diagnosis, an accident  or trauma due to a violent attack?

Maybe you are feeling burnt out at work or have a sense of restlessness, like there is something missing.

If you are overwhelmed with uncertainty about the future or if a friend or loved one seems to be feeling like this, then my new book, Bounce Back Better is for you!

This book is highly recommended by Trinidadian educator and education consultant, Raymond S. Hackett. Here is what Mr. Hackett had to say about the book in his foreword:

As an educator for the past five decades and three years, I cannot honestly admit that I have read a book more comprehensive than and relevant to the times as Bounce Back Better 10 (+ 1) Key Steps for Building Resilience.  Inspired by the message and advice which characterise this book, I look forward to an outcome which will cause the general public, magistrates, judges, lawyers, members of the Lower House and the Senate of our Parliament, policemen, doctors, nurses, social workers, probation officers, teachers, particularly secondary school students above Forms One and Two, guidance officers, clinical psychologists, and last but not least advocates of Restorative Justice to read this third book which Caron Asgarali has written. Without doubt, it is prescribed reading for all.

No temptation such as is common to man.

“There hath no temptation taken you but such as is common to man: but God is faithful, who will not suffer you to be tempted above that ye are able; but will with the temptation also make a way to escape, that ye may be able to bear it.”

1 Corinthians 10:13

Temptation has existed for a long time. Temptations of today are just like temptations of yesterday; the differences will be in modes of transmission due to technological and other developments.

Man’s natural course of action is to follow the most beaten path. We tread in the ways of those who have passed.

It would be so much better for us to learn from what is no longer; to heed the warnings from the past.

There is no temptation that has not been offered to man. Throughout the ages, at least one person would have been under the influence of something that is now influencing you.

We are cautioned to be aware of the punishments of God’s chosen people when they went against his Will.

For idolatry and paganism, they were punished; for sexual immorality; for testing God and for grumbling. They were punished as reminders to those in the future that it is in their interest to seek God’s will.

His way is perfect; his word is tried. He is faithful.

In the face of temptation, we are allowed to make our own decisions. If that decision is one which brings us more than we can bear, more than we can resist, then God will provide a way out for us.

The point is that we are given a certain amount of freedom; freedom of choice, given all associated rewards and punishments. We are left to make our choice but there is an escape route through God if we are believers.

Do have a blessed day! Thank you for reading and let me know if you think that God has been your rescue at any time.

Finally… my book

You may also visit outskirts press to view the book. The book is also available on Amazon, in paperback and kindle version.

This is so exciting yet a little bit nerve-racking. My story will be available for anyone who wants to read it. I am open to criticism on all fronts. However I have placed all my trust in God and know that all will be well.

The foreword of my book was written by Mr. Philip G. Rochford, HBM, author and empowerment strategist. Mr. Rochford is also now a qualified life coach, one whom I can fully endorse. He coached me along my journey with this book, encouraging me at every step of writing, editing and production. He has turned out to be a wonderful source of support and a tower of strength on which I may lean and I have yet to meet him face to face.

I have included a summary below for you to stimulate your desire to read more. The author page and Amazon page would also have the back cover information.

             Never could Caron Asgarali have imagined the violent and life-changing event that was about to unfold when she ventured out on the night of Tuesday 29th January, 2013. That night, just as she was about to return home, she was shot in the face by an unknown assailant at close range.

            She became another statistic in the number of violent crimes in Trinidad and…almost added to the number of murders, but was fortunate to emerge alive.

            The attempted robbery and simultaneous wounding with intent set her on a journey from the cold , institutional Intensive Care Unit, to the clinical wards of public and private hospitals and finally into the warm, embracing light of a promised, ethereal hereafter

             From Lion to Lamb is an inspiring story of a single, professional woman confronted by the epidemic of lawlessness besieging her beloved country and the perseverance, resilience and spiritual renewal which bloom in the desert of physical and psychological turmoil as she deals with healing, reconstruction and plastic surgery.

           This book will provide you with refreshingly simple yet powerful inspiration based upon Caron’s experiences and  grounded in Biblical text. The Beatitudes, listed by Jesus Christ in the Sermon on the Mount, found in the Holy Bible, provide the foundation on which the chapters are built.

           The introduction gives some insight into her background, her family setting and her personality. Each chapter tells a story which is used to bring out the message of one of the Beatitudes. The chapters are written in ascending order of the Beatitudes. The conclusion brings us to the place where she is currently in physical restoration and in her spiritual quest.

          Any and all persons, regardless of religion, will be able to relate to the Universal principles of peace, love, humility, gratitude and much more which are promoted in this book, From Lion to Lamb: A Spiritual Journey.

The style is simple. The story is inspiring and illuminating. I hope you get some time to check out From Lion to Lamb.

I am really looking forward to your thoughts on my book. Please let me know what you think.
