“I have come to the conclusion that victory and, above all, happiness do not lie in being a shining star, but rather being who God meant you to be and shiny your tiny bit of light in the place He has chosen for you. The forests would be silent if the only birds that sang were the ones that knew how to do it the best. The symphony of a forest, the beauty of this symphony, is made up of the multiplicity of songs, where lofty notes are sung along with cacophonous sounds, but when joined together, they all create therapy for the oppressed soul,” (Navajo, 2012, p. 204).
This book is one of those books that will influence your life and inspire you beyond your time spent reading it. Making a great addition to your personal library, this book would also make a great gift.
