"I really enjoyed reading this book, it was just right on point with quotes of positive reassurance and helping realize your own perspective of how to enjoy yourself by slowing down the fast pace life one is living. Another thing I enjoyed is the book was not overwhelming in length, it was just the right amount of reading on self-contemplation. I also enjoyed how the author shared her background and parts of her upbringing, it was genuine. After I was down reading it, I gave it to my tween to read. Once she is down I am getting it back just to have it nearby for whenever I need to self-motivate myself."
