Here, Smith highlights 18 words whose essence she asserts, when considered in our daily lives, can ultimately translate to balance and fulfillment”- US Review of Nooks by Carol Davala Full Review:

 “It’s beautiful in its simplicity and one that I will use to pick up and see what pages opens for me and use that as my inspiring mind-set for the day. This book would make a wonderful gift that would be treasured by the recipient” Bo Bradley, Author of Best Seller “Achieving the Dream”

This book is a beautiful expression of how people should interact/ It teaches love, respect, humanity, humility, and peace. While teaching for the individual it encourages us to share these qualities with others so that we can not only improve our lives, but the lives of others as well. Sheena teaches us to encourage positive symbiotic relationships that are mutualistic rather than parasitic. She wants us to help ourselves, while helping others. Life Simply Put teaches us how we should also embrace, love, and learn about the people or things that are different from us. Read this for yourself, for your children, for your partner. Then encourage them to do the same. This is definitely a book that needs to be read often to remind us how important it is to care more about our selves, our jobs, our phones, and all of the inconsequential things that exist. It should be shared, so that others can do the same so that Sheena’s very important message is allowed to change our world in the positive way it can, if people would really listen and learn what’s truly important in life.-J.W.

Life Simply Put: 18 Simple Words for an Abundant Life by Sheena L. Smith  Publisher Trafford Publishing Review by Carol Davala 

“You are responsible for your own happiness. Make choices that will honor your spirit and bring you joy.”

Sheena L. Smith is a woman who clearly views the proverbial glass as half full. Her book, Life Simply Put, is a charming, inspirational work that focuses on the pursuit of happiness. Here, Smith highlights 18 words whose essence she asserts, when considered in our daily lives, can ultimately translate to balance and fulfillment.

In this book of life affirmations, the author’s advice and suggestions range from concepts of living life to the fullest, counting your blessings, following your instincts, living in the now, and to “Dream big!” Smith’s effort is a quick read, but more appropriately it serves as a small volume to page through slowly, revisit the word choices, and reflect on the positive life influences they enumerate. While words like faith, hope, and gratitude might be expected, more surprising is the push behind words like play, adventure, and grace that Smith emphasizes as integral elements for achieving life’s best.

Candid photographs provide visual translations, while inspirational quotes correspond with the word selections. From a golden sunrise to a fiery orange sunset, nuzzling pups to thrill-seeking skydivers, family snapshots and colorful images of world travel, each suggests a note of tranquility or exuberance. These life affirmations are creatively bolstered by Native American proverbs, literary quotes, and celebrity voices adding words for reflective thought.

While Smith’s words are simple, they are truly powerful. Readers will be challenged to consider their application in terms of positive self transformation. For those looking for further encouragement, the author kindly offers a reading list that includes several titles from Hay House, a well-known publisher of books that focus on well-being, inspiration, and personal growth
