There is a common saying that there is no such thing as losing you can only win or learn from past events and obstacles we have faced throughout life.

The Book of Joy taught me several things, like how to overcome the obstacles of joy that occur in daily life. It also taught me that joy comes from suffering and to accept the suffering and find ways to alleviate the pain. Many of the things stated in the book touched and impacted me because I could relate to or empathise with what was being said. I myself am religious and follow the path of God, so it wasn’t very difficult for me to agree with what was said in the book, and I actually learned a lot about my religion from it. I’m very delighted to have read this book also partly because it helped me realize a handful of great things that I can attempt to make into habits like meditating, or praying for long periods of time, and even thinking of others to help myself.
The reason I choose the song “Smile” by Kirk Franklin is because it’s an inspirational song. It’s a song that’s made to keep everyone motivated; this song is something to make people work harder or want to try harder to accomplish something. At the beginning of the song Kirk says ¨I dedicate this song to recession, depression and unemployment.” In that line he is talking to the people who are at a point in their lives when they just need a break from all of the stuff they’re going through at that time. No matter what it is, or how rough it may get, it’s going to be okay. He encourages them to keep pushing through.
I’m not a very open person and I don’t make friends that easy, but Big Break changed all that. I felt so comfortable with everyone, I wasn’t afraid to be judge by being myself, and I opened up so much more than I ever have. I made connections with people and made new friends that I know I can come to whenever I need advice or just need to talk. Another great experience and thing I learned, was the importance of prayer and how to love it. Before PCB prayer was always a struggle in my life,
With the help of Bertrand Russell's essay What I Have Lived For, I have finally came to the conclusion of what I live for. I live for love, the kind of love I feel not only for my lover but the kind of love you feel for all people in general. I live for the future, to work for a better future than my past. Lastly, I live to make a difference, not necessarily a big difference but just to have a small impact on someone's life. Brentrand and I have many differences in what we live for.
Sadly, these limitations are not always visible to the human eye, this means people will work hard, and work for a long time when a path will only ever lead them back to the same spot where they were before. This theme is seen through the entire novella, George and Lennie end up the same way the book started, Lennie’s lack of self-control caused Lennie to make a mistake once again, and again it made Lennie’s life be threatened. Lennie’s and George’s dream was not an uncommon neither, as Crooks states, "I seen hunderds of men come by on the road an ' on the ranches, with their bindles on their back an ' that same damn thing in their heads. Hunderds of them. They come, an ' they quit an ' go on; an ' every damn one of 'em 's got a little piece of land in his head.
