Shelves: mind-opening
This little peach of a book is a wonderful motivator, whether for creative projects, or just everyday life. After reading it, I ended up scrubbing floors... along with painting a couple of pictures. It's an introspective, inspirational book that will challenge the reader into thinking: so...why am I not doing that?

very quick read. a good book to pick up when you're feeling frustrated & hindered from doing something really exciting or otherwise taking chances in life. it might be the one place you can go where real life doesn't poo-poo your wildest dreams but encourages them.

Well written and thought out. Thank you for the 'to hell with that, blanketyblank them!' stance in the chapter 'The benefits of wishing for too much', Madame Falter-Barns. You said in a concrete way what i always suspected, and i am grateful for that solidarity. This one is a keeper.

This is one of my go-to books, when I am feeling creatively stuck. It really has held up over the years! Suzanne Falter-Barns has a joyful way of writing that is totally infectious.

A sweet little book in short chapters of how to make yourself happier. Some really great exercises are at the end of each chapter.
