Welcome back to the Tranquility du Jour virtual book club! From one bibliophile to another, let’s read stories that move us, make us think, and open up important conversations.
Together we’ll read and discuss in our TDJ Insider’s Facebook group and hopefully in person someday soon. You in? Hope so!
Tina Turner—living legend, icon to millions, and author of the “brave and wry” (Vulture) memoir My Love Story—returns with a deeply personal book of wisdom that explores her longstanding faith in Buddhism and provides a guide to these timeless principles so you can find happiness in your own life.
I dedicate this book to you…
in honor of your
unseen efforts to
triumph over each problem
life sends your way.
Tina is a global icon of inspiration. And now, with Happiness Becomes You: A Guide to Changing Your Life for Good, Tina shows how anyone can overcome life’s obstacles—even transform the “impossible” to possible—and fulfill our dreams. She shows how we, too, can improve our lives, empowering us with spiritual tools and sage advice to enrich our unique paths.
Buddhism has been a central part of Tina Turner’s life for decades and, in music, film, and live performances, she has shined as an example of generating hope from nothing, breaking through all limitations, and succeeding in life. Drawing from the lessons of her own life, from adversity to stratospheric heights, Tina effortlessly shows how the spiritual lessons of Buddhism help her transform from sorrow, adversity, and poverty into joy, stability, and prosperity.
Why I Chose It
I came across this book early December and knew it would be perfect for the new year. Buddhism, happiness, Tina, spiritual tools, sage advice, I’m in! I mean, Tina Turner and Dolly Parton—two powerful female musical icons in a row. I’ve downloaded it on Kindle and look forward to reading along with you.
And, I’ve recently discovered Schitt’s Creek (I know, I know, a bit late to the party) and am obsessed with this scene (and want David to be my BFF). I may have cried. Anyway, join me and happy reading!
