When Everyone Shines But You (Book 1 in the series)
Is this it? Why does life seem so unfair?
It's easy to see others living our dreams. It's easy to feel held back, misunderstood and invisible, but there comes a time in our lives when we just can't take it anymore. This is when we need answers and the confirmation that who we think we are can change.
The pain of jealousy and envy grew too much for Kelly Martin when she saw friends, family and strangers passing her by in every single area of her life. Feeling crushed by the weight of the 'comparison junkie' she cried out for answers. How could she feel good enough when she felt knee-deep in poverty and loneliness and when she carried a bag called 'I feel like a failure' on her back?
'When Everyone Shines But You' (Book 1 in 'The Shine Series') was born out of a desperate desire for relief from the pain of depression and anxiety. Kelly sat down one day and asked her heart for answers that her mind was unable to bring. She longed for wisdom and knowledge, and it came.
'When Everyone Shines But You' takes the reader through everyday life challenges in a way that shows how to handle life's stresses in a kinder and more intuitive way.
It's not a fast-food approach to personal or spiritual growth, because it takes commitment to take this path, but sometimes life encourages us into the depths of our life's journey. If you want change, it has to begin from within.

"After the break up of a long term relationship and the consequent inversion of my life, I was left feeling jealous, envious, alone and bitter. This book was a reassuring companion for me. Normally I make highlights, with this I read straight through with the intention re-reading and making notes. Wonderful. Thank you." ~ CJR
"I loved reading this book. The author covers topics such as jealousy, rage and judgement, and that general feeling of 'not good enough'. Typically, humans see these things as bad and try to change them or pretend they aren't there. Kelly provides a way of looking at these topics with a deep level of acceptance, and allows the reader to see themselves in pure human form, warts and all, and provides an outlook on life that you won't see in many self-help books, many of which do not delve deeply into the 'hard stuff' and provide a way through them...." ~ Andy, UK ~

What Are People Saying About 'When Everyone Shines INCLUDING You'?
"Well it took me 24hrs to read this book, I had to put it down eventually to go to bed but picked it up the next day and finished it, Inspiring, accomplished, motivating, caring, expressive, are just a few moving words to describe how I felt reading Everyone Shines Including You, a marvelous read, this book should be in every doctors surgery it should be prescribed instead of tranquilisers as the book is a pill that everyone should take.
Well done to the author for writing such inspiring words.

"Next time I advise my clients to write as part of their healing journey THIS will be the book I’ll be recommending; I couldn’t give them a better example. What a wonderful book. With such sumptuously rich and delightfully colourful language; you can almost feel the words in your mouth… but they cannot take away the raw authenticity.
This book was a pleasure to read, open in a way that only a brave introvert can be. The structure makes it an easy read for anyone who ‘snacks’ at content, although I must confess I read it in one sitting.
We might not consciously know what we’re capable of, and there are hurt people in the world who at times seem determined to keep us down (it’s their own pain of course being projected). I like the way Kelly shares the voice of her subconscious, that powerful inner voice that’s connected to everything we need and knows we’re totally unique, amazing and capable of whatever we want from our life … it just needs time, space and sometimes a helping hand to bring it out."
