Full of encouraging tips, this book is a nice read for those who want to add more oomph into their lives. The author encourages readers to stop and smell flowers, both literally and figuratively. The notions of dance, art, writing, reading, studying, loving people, loving animals, and more are covered. Each chapter is also full of inspirational quotes and thought-provoking questions. There are Christian undertones in this book as the author speaks of Jesus and quotes Bible verses. However, it is not too pushy or overwhelming for the reader. Overall, this book is about being happy and--let me just say it--stop being uptight. Life is too short to not enjoy it. What I love is the back cover where the author is smiling. She is not some twenty-year-old but rather a wise woman with life experience.
