KIRKUS REVIEW

In this debut self-improvement guide, Nocero provides short, easily digestible wisdom about positive thinking and daily creative practices.

Using a calendar-style, one-entry-per-day format, this book aims to help readers find gratitude by offering small, human reminders regarding inspiration, play, creativity, and imagination. If you’re an average, busy adult, this helpful work may serve as a tool to spice up your life a bit, reconnect with friends or loved ones, or use an imagination that’s sometimes dulled by the monotony of routine. For example, in one entry, Nocero reminds readers to “Remember to play” and notes that while children “live in the world of their imaginations,” adults must choose to re-energize their spirits with imaginative thinking. Playfulness, she suggests, is a way to remember the wonder of life. In another entry, she urges readers to maintain healthy friendships—to “water” them as one would plants. Other entries offer more poignant wisdom regarding awareness: “We live in a world where there is…a pervading belief that there is not enough of anything to go around.” But in reality, she says, “Love is abundant. Kindness is abundant. Success is abundant.” These thoughtful moments are sure to enrich readers’ days, offering ideas to consider and share with others. Along with each calendar entry is a helpful “Magical Key to Bliss”—a short mantra about patience, listening, taking risks, or living freely, such as, “Sow love, and reap a life of abundance!” Overall, this book could be a great resource for family gatherings, a springboard for dinner-table discussions, or a gift for a friend to help him or her connect each day to a positive idea.

A successful, progressive daily handbook about awareness, creativity, gratitude, and fulfillment.
