I completely enjoyed this book from beginning to end! It really made me think of the more positive events in my day to day life.

She stays upbeat and pleasant to listen to. She explains personal experiences of her own and of some of the people in her life. I like how she shares how to incorporate these things to my everyday life and my way of thinking.

I hope you enjoy this book as much as I have! :)
