A beautiful, intimate and inspiring investigation into how we can find and nurture within ourselves that essential quality of internal happiness ? the 'light within' that Julia Baird calls 'phosphorescence' ? which will sustain us even through the darkest times. Over the last decade, we have become better at knowing what brings us contentment, well-being and joy. We know, for example, that there are a few core truths to the science of happiness. We know that being kind and altruistic makes us happy, that turning off devices, talking to people, forging relationships, living with meaning and delving into the concerns of others offer our best chance at achieving happiness. But how do we retain happiness? It often slips out of our hands as quickly as we find it. So, when we are exposed to, or learn, good things, how do we continue to burn with them? And more than that, when our world goes dark, when we're overwhelmed by illness or heartbreak, loss or pain, how do we survive, stay alive or even bloom? In the muck and grit of a daily existence full of disappointments and a disturbing lack of control over many of the things that matter most - finite relationships, fragile health, fraying economies, a planet in peril ? how do we find, nurture and carry our own inner, living light ? a light to ward off the darkness?… (mais)

This is totally different to my normal reading material. However, my niece and her man gave me the book for Christmas and I was determined to read the book for that reason alone. Phosphorescence is a big word that I find difficult to say, let alone know what it means. And, I had no clue what the book might present me, so was surprised to find it isn't a novel at all. :)

My surprise was deepened when the first chapter turned out to be about jellyfish. Yet, once the surprise ebbed, I was captivated. Honestly, I didn't know how interesting jellyfish could be. Yet, of course, the book is so much more than jellyfish too. This is an inspirational, self-help book that speaks to your inner emotions and sooths your soul.

Each reader will take something different from each chapter. But I believe, for me, it allowed me to view the world through someone else's eyes. It allowed me to feel, experience, and understand what's going on around me in nature and how that, if noticed, can heal our wounds and lift our spirits.

We rely on electronics too much. We have become separated from those around us, especially now in this new COVID world. Yet, we can still be happy and content if we appreciate the smaller things.

There were two chapters that I couldn't finish reading. I got the jist of what was being said, but I felt the message went on for too long, and I grew bored. However, those two chapters aside, and I enjoyed the book immensely. No, it wasn't a novel, but it still took me to other places and allowed me to be.

Not everyone will love the book, but I would recommend you try it to see if you do...or not. ( )

Very much did not know what to expect when I picked up this book

It is a very difficult thing to describe, but definitely worth reading

Don’t come with preconceived ideas

It is great

A beautiful, and beautifully written book that is part memoir, philosophy, rallying cry and manual for self-care. Wise with righteousness, terrific depth presented lightly and totally enjoyable. ( )

I loved this book, although life wields a brutal sword at times, Phosphorescence inspired me to look for the silver linings, to be amazed by nature and to seek help when most in need. The importance of awe, solitude, silence, friendship, gratitude and so much more are contemplated in this lovely read. ( )

I get what she is trying to tell us - be mindful, enjoy nature, keep friendships, find awe and wonder, get through dark times
Well researched and written.
Would love to see phosphorescence! ( )
