Everything is Going to be OK

Anonymous, Chronicle Books.

“Do you ever feel a little down, a little blue, a little bit in need of someone to come along and say: ‘Hey, it’s your day. You are exactly where you need to be!’” That’s the raison d’âtre of “Everything is Going to be OK,” a little book filled with nothing more (or less) than a series of short messages designed to inspire and offer good cheer.

“You are my sunshine, my only sunshine” is one. “When life gives you lemons, make lemonade” is another. The messages—each accompanied by or an integral part of an image—may be too sickly sweet for some, but the anonymous author(s) are right about one thing: Optimism <i>is</i> underrated. With that in mind, I encourage you to “keep on the sunny side,” because “you’re doing everything right!”
