I literally see the world differently since reading this book (and meeting the author). 2016-2018 was a tough time for me (from the election to health challenges and personal stuff) and I felt like I was spiraling into despair. not quite depressed, but maybe? I didn't feel like myself at all and I feel like this book reminded me of an inner strength and perspective I once had and had just forgotten in all the complicatedness of adulting. I really wish I could assign it for the entire world to read. it would certainly make a better world. the simple concepts rooted in very real anecdotes are simple to understand and so interesting to learn and notice.
