New book is a collection of uplifting, soulful messages that invite readers to savour the gift of life
Cecilia B. Mañosa has lived an ordinary extraordinary life. Her journey is filled with twists and turns. She has loved and lost, been hurt and healed, moved and returned, suffered and survived. She believes that these are stories worth telling and lessons worth sharing — not just with her daughters but with everyone else.
“Bitter with the Sweet: Savouring a Zest for Life” (published by Balboa Press AU) is a collection of uplifting, soulful messages that invite readers to savour the gift of life. Here, the author draws on her experiences as a mother, wife, daughter, sister, widow, and friend to illustrate how life, with its ups and downs, is worth all of it. The book nudges readers to ponder their purpose, direction and relationships, and think about how to make their own lives more rewarding and fulfilling. In today’s extra busy and overly techy world, it serves to remind them to make each day and each moment count with those who truly matter.
“Life is not just what happens to you. It’s what you make of it. It won’t always be happy but it can be worth it. We’ve all heard about the lemons and the lemonade. It’s up to you to make yours sweet,” Mañosa says.
It is the author’s hope that intimate musings and experiential observations presented in this book will provide some insight into the reader’s personal growth no matter what stage they are along their life’s journey.
