Through four steps that reveal hidden skills and wisdom, anyone can design a life they love!"
Review: I've never really review nor read any sort of guide or life planner, so whenever the opportunity to do so arose, I thought why not? This book ended up being a lot more fun and inspiring than I thought. From fun drawings to wonderful advice, I overall really enjoyed every minute of this one.
One thing I really loved (and it's such a silly thing to love) is the fact that it comes with a book marker. I know that seems random, but I loved that if I found something particularly inspiring, I could mark it with the bookmark and look reflect on it later. The whole concept of the book is to look at life differently, to be inspired and showing techniques on how to do so. I liked the fact that it discussed using a sketchbook and suggests you draw something everyday. Be creative and remember to be playful. Do you know how many semi-used sketchbooks I own? Too many, and I think it's time to bust them out, wake up my brain, be the me I was meant to be!!!
Okay, it got a little intense there, but you get the idea.
"Because an original life is a life well-lived."
Best. Quote. Ever.
All and all, I really enjoyed this one. In fact, I may purchase a couple of these as gifts for some of my favorite people. Will one be you? Do I even know you? Maybe we should change that! ANYWAY, I highly recommend this one for people looking to be inspired or add more light into their life.
