From first glance, I loved this book.  I mean, you guys.  LOOK AT THE COVER:
And the inside is even better.  

Imagine gorgeous National Geographic photos with some of the best-ever quotations from literature, philosophy, and art.


It's a good mix, too.  Everyone from Erasmus to Kristen Wiig is in this book dispensing wisdom.  The quotations are organized by month, and each month has a theme like mindfulness, authenticity, love, etc.  I flipped through the whole book so I could write this review, but I think the best way to experience it is to read a quotation everyday.  This morning, in fact, I enjoyed a cup of green chai tea and today's quotation, which was this:


The month of October's theme is generosity, and it couldn't come at a better time for me, for reasons I hope to be able to talk about later this week.

Daily Kindness: 365 Days of Compassion would be an excellent gift-- especially a holiday party hostess gift.  It is also a wonderful little pick-me-up.  It's like a perfectly curated Instagram feed right there at your fingertips.  Buy it.  Read it.  Soak it in.

I've been looking for a "daily get your mind right" kind of thing but nothing has really fit the bill. This might be exactly what I was looking for! Maybe a stocking stuffer too...
