This book is a treasure worth keeping nearby at all times!

I just loved this book. It is short and too the point, there is no fluff or narcissistic gobbledygook that often accompanies such philosophical musings. Peter writes sparingly and beautifully about what really matters and what it means to live life with gratitude, forgiveness, beauty, focus and well being. He spices it with some great personal adventures too! Writing such a book could come across as preachy of full of platitudes, but somehow Peter neatly avoids that and conveys simple and uncluttered truths that we all need to be reminded of over and over again. This book will not be getting lost on my bookshelf any time soon!

Take the time, it's a small book. Peter tells stories that have helped him sort out what is important in life. Just a great reminder to focus on what is important, and to accept what is.
