~ I received no compensation and opinions are 100% my own or my family. ~

Filled with light-hearted quick hits of encouragement for anyone looking for a jolt of "get out there and live."  Short entries—musings, things to do, and inspirational quotes—are paired with stunning artwork, creating a beautiful keepsake to give as a gift or to keep on your bedside table.  Presented as one continuous list accompanied by whimsical sidebars and thought-provoking quotes, the text touches on many and varied themes such as: following your passions, staying curious, appreciating nature, traveling, trying new things, and living life with courage.
