My Review:

I like to think of myself as a positive thinker and also maybe a bit of a philosophical thinker so this book was right up my ally. I got it when I came home and less than an hour later I had eagerly read the whole book {keeping in mind it’s a very easy book to read} and I was telling myself I need to re-read it and really take in what it’s trying to tell me.

This is a book for anyone who needs a little boost if you are trying to make a decision, mend a relationship, break out of a rut and try something new or maybe you just need a little kick in the pants to help you look on the sunnier side of life.

This little book is filled with quirky ideas and thoughts {and some cute black and white pics to accompany} and I think it is quite inspiring.

I like what is written on the back cover of this book… “This book will not change your life. You will change you life.”

Ready for a change? Need a little boost? Read this book.

Thanks to Cadence Publishing for providing me with a free copy.
