Following my post in which I created a 2018 vision board, I began reading a copy of N.N. Light's Book of Daily Inspiration that I acquired through an awesome book promoter (Lola's Blog Tours). If you know me, I am not one for daily devotional type books. Honestly, the time each day tends to slip away from me and another concern is that I have been in somewhat of a fluctuating faith over the last few years. So any religious based enrichment has been iffy for me.
Enter what I call the Light Book.
I have read the daily inspirations via Kindle every day for a month, and I plan to get a paperback copy to keep this up. (The paperback is a little costly at nearly $30 as of this publishing. However, you can read it free in Kindle Unlimited!) The inspirations are basically about being a good human. Reminders of the importance of kindness, believing in yourself, and encouragement abound. Perfectly timed reminders to help keep me sane and at the top of my game have kept me positive this month. (Mostly.)
Are there religious quotes? Yes.
Bible verses? Yes.
But there are also quotes from Batman, Steve Jobs, and Henry Ford.
If I could send two requests to the author, they would be:
1. Purse-sized print edition. I tend to read on the go and the 6x9 inch format is a wee bit big for shoving in my bag.
2. A teen version. My daughter would like this type of thing, but she won't pay attention to my copy because it "looks adult" and the quotes are from older people. If they could retool and do a teen edition too, that would be awesome.
Here's more info about the book:

Blurb: "Spread the Light and inspire others to do the same." -- N. N. Light In 2013, we wrote a mission statement and started the Princess of the Light (POTL) blog. We wanted to test a theory. Could one person (or in our case, one couple) use uplifting words to create change? The answer is a resounding yes! People from all over the world responded to our short inspirational thoughts of the day, and our following grew. What started out as a few people promoting kindness and goodwill turned into a movement. In every city, there are Light-Bearers making a difference and we want you to join us. Everyone needs inspiration. It doesn’t matter what spiritual belief you hold dear, you have the Light inside you. Kindness, compassion, empathy, encouragement are all attributes of the Light. In this book, you’ll find a ninety second inspirational thought for each day of the year. You’ll be inspiring people to spread the Light daily with our collection of inspirational thoughts. From giving of yourself to simply smiling, these are easy concepts for anyone to apply!You can find N. N. Light’s Book of Daily Inspiration on Goodreads You can buy N. N.
