The Ten Rules For Being Human: 1. You will receive a body. 2. You will be presented with lessons. 3. There are no mistakes, only lessons. 4. Lessons are repeated until learned. 5. Learning does not end. 6. "There" is no better than "here." 7. Others are only mirrors of you. 8. What you make of your life is up to you. 9. All the answers lie inside of you. 10. You will forget all of this at birth. If life is a game, what are the rules? We all know the feeling: In the game of life, why am I the only one who doesn't know how to play? But now, help is at hand, because this wonderful little book will teach you the rules so that you can conquer life's challenges and manage its unpredictable ups and downs. For one of her workshops several years ago, Chérie Carter-Scott, a corporate trainer and consultant, composed a list of basic truths about life, which she named "The Ten Rules for Being Human." Right away, the Rules resonated with her clients, who photocopied and passed the list to friends and relatives. Within months, Chérie's Rules were in thousands of homes all over the country, and eventually, they were published in Chicken Soup for the Soul and have also appeared in Ann Landers' column. Although there's no formula to help you win the game of life, Chérie's Rules convey a universal wisdom that, once understood and embraced, can contribute to meaningful relationships with ourselves and others, at work and in the home. In If Life Is a Game, These Are the Rules, Chérie shares that there are no mistakes in life, only lessons that are repeated. In thoughtful, inspirational essays illustrated with encouraging personal anecdotes, she includes the lessons that can be learned from each of the Rules and offers insights on self-esteem, respect, acceptance, forgiveness, ethics, compassion, humility, gratitude, and courage. Best of all, Chérie shows that wisdom lies inside each one of us and that by putting the Ten Rules for Being Human into action we can create a more fulfilling life. Chicken Soup for the Soul, they instantly became a favorite section of that wildly successful book. Now Carter-Scott, an internationally acclaimed motivational speaker, brings the rules to life by applying them to anecdotes drawn from her own encounters, as well as stories from her family, close friends, and workshop participants. Presented in a personal format, these steps to becoming a satisfied and well-adjusted person are sure to garner an even wider following. -->

Afterthoughts presents an unforgettable journey into the world of adolescence as seen through the eyes of a high school counselor. Each and every day, a very special someone enters the counselor’s office, knowing that it will be a safe haven to bare his or her soul. It is behind those closed doors that tears fall, heartfelt stories unfold, and answers to life’s most difficult questions begin to unravel. From the fourteen-year-old boy struggling with alcoholic parents to the young girl continuing to fight her addictions; these are emotional journeys that will affect all who read them deeply. As a way of saying thank you to all those who have opened their hearts to her, author and school counselor Mrs. D. shares a journal created especially for them, presented in poetry and prose. A Familiar Voice Amidst the chaotic confusion, the office phone rings. Years have passed since the dismal dark voice on the other end So frantically fought back thoughts of taking her life. She speaks softly, slowly, tearfully, of today’s breakup. She silently suffers within her own world of sadness. With a tearful tone, she speaks of him And their connection, The indescribable innocence they shared together. Can she sustain the painful prison of being alone?
