When fifteen-year-old Meg Hollis insists on entering her local high school, her parents are skeptical.
Because Meg is blind, they worry that she will not be able to keep up with her classwork or find her way through the halls. They tell her she can try it for a semester; if it doesn't work out, she can go to the Institute for the Blind. Meg finds herself under pressure to succeed academically, to show her parents that she can handle regular school. But the hardest part for her is the social scene. Meg longs to be part of the "in crowd," and works hard not to appear different from her peers. A group of unconventional friends and a memorable teacher help Meg discover who she really is. During a tumultuous few months Meg learns that it is not her blindness, but her sense of herself that makes her unique.
Jenny reveals how she uses the story of the golden Buddha to turn her life of self-criticism into a life of self-appreciation and inner peace. Using a combination of drawings and short essays, I am a Golden Buddha is a delightful and insightful model for your own journey from self-criticism to self-love and inner peace. Praise for Jenny Messerle's I am a Golden Buddha: “I just love this book Jenny Messerle wrote. Her gentle wisdom and encouragement on handling self-criticism is healing to my heart.” - Sabrina Ward Harrison, author of Spilling Open: The Art of Becoming Yourself “What a courageous, insightful, beautiful book I am a Golden Buddha: A Journey from Self-Criticism to Inner Peace is. We need to get it out into the world. So many people are going to identify with and benefit from it. But they have to read it for that to happen.” – Jill Badonsky, author of The Muse Is In: An Owner’s Manual to Your Creativity “I am Golden Buddha is a gorgeous book filled with wonderful cartoons and lovely words. The book is amazing and I can see myself in it so much. Thank you to Jenny for being so vulnerable and for sharing herself so beautifully with the world. This book is a treasure.” – Violette Clark, author of Journal Bliss: Creative Prompts to Unleash Your Inner Eccentric “I am a Golden Buddha is one of my favorite new books. Reading this book, I kept thinking, "Oh my gosh, she is writing about me." In that thought process I alternated between feeling exposed - "I am so weird "- and feeling encouraged and aligned. My thoughts of inadequacy and self-esteem in progress were normalized by hearing a shared journey, albeit with different details. Hearing someone tell their story so authentically, and seeing how they rose above those pernicious voices telling them (us!) that we are not good enough, gives me both courage and understanding to rise above those same voices that keep me small. Thank you, Jenny. I hope everyone who reads this endorsement will read your important book.” Molly Lannon Kenny, author of No Gurus Came Knocking and founder and director of The Samarya Center, a 501 c 3 non-profit organization dedicated to individual transformation and radical social change “There is a purity in the book, I am a Golden Buddha, and combined with a reader’s open heart, these pages are sure to heal.
We all carry stories from our childhood that have the potential to fracture our perception of self-worth. Not only does Jenny provide a structure to begin seeing yourself anew, but she also provides a vehicle through personal stories and tender illustrations that will melt away any defenses. Read this book, as I did, and fall in love with both Jenny and with yourself! – Rachel Awes, psychologist, author, speaker & art playgroundist, at rachelawes.com
