The poet, Maggie Smith (not the famous actress) has built a motivational book page by page as she recovered from the loss incurred by her divorce. While one tires of the nagging Keep Moving on every page, one can also be buoyed by the relentless understanding and optimism of the messages in the book. Whilst this book was undoubtedly created for those suffering losses or transition, given the year 2020, this book will be of help to all of us in getting through this difficult time. It is indeed wise advice to Keep Moving. The author bases this advice on uncertainty: no one knows what will happen next, but it is important to get oneself to the next stage.
This book is perfect for a daily jolt of inspiration and hope. The author acknowledges that she herself used pessimism as protection: if one forecasts the worst eventuality, then one can always be pleasantly surprised at better outcomes. This is a perfect little bedside book.
