Reason for Reading – I signed up for the review tour, hosted by JustReadTours. I received a copy of this novel from the publisher. All opinions are my own, I do not need to leave a positive review.
Cover Image/Inside Illustrations – 2 / ★★★★★ I'm not really sure what the light has to do with the book, but I do like the simplicity of the cover and the easy-to-read font.
Intellectual Depth – 5 / ★★★★★ Is the message simple? YES! Also backed up with scientific facts, personal stories, and helpful advice.
Sure, occasionally we're tempted to gossip or indulge in a little justified road rage . . . or snap at our spouse . . . or scream at our kids . . . but if everyone else would get with the program, we wouldn't be this way!
Maybe the trouble isn't with all those other people who aggravate us. Maybe we're the problem--specifically, the way we react to inconveniences, accidents, and just plain old everyday life with negative words, thoughts, and actions. Because the truth is, when we stop focusing on how we're being affected and start responding in kind ways, that's when something remarkable happens: we actually feel happier ourselves.
With humor, compassion, and encouragement, Nicole Phillips draws on scientific research and real-life examples to help us recognize unhelpful negative thought patterns, show kindness toward others even when we don't feel like it, and discover how one little change actually changes everything.

"When I tell myself I’m going to be bad at something, I always prove myself right. Self talk is dangerous when it’s negative."
