When Everyone Shines But You (The Shine Series, Book 1)

By Kelly Martin

Personal growth, Health & well-being, General non-fiction, Psychology & philosophy | Paperback, eBook


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.



Kelly Martin is a passionate and unconventional metaphysical thinker and writer who has been questioning reality since 1999. Writing on her blog Kelly Martin Speaks and speaking on YouTube she traces her journey from shyness to greater confidence. Kelly has explored many different paths from Reiki healing, Shamanism to Buddhism and now embraces a primarily mindful journey. After what felt like a decade of severe anxiety she took up mindfulness meditation and began to notice how much compassion and kindness lay in simply being with who she was, in that moment. Through practising mindfulness she began to emerge from a story of failure and fear to empowerment and greater confidence. She wants to encourage people to find the treasures that lie within the pain and suffering and to learn to see themselves as 'enough' exactly as they are, right now. Born in Newcastle-upon-Tyne in North East England, she now lives in Gloucestershire with her best friend Mike and the occasional visiting cat. She likes nothing better than sitting in a café drinking coffee, writing and people watching. Prior to metaphysics she majored in Environmental Studies at University and in many ways her love of the natural world has carried over into the love of nature as a great guide in her life.
