My Review - 5

You may remember, in Feb/March I was struggling with reading and realized it was life over all and I was really overwhelmed without a plan.  I joined a 100 day happiness project to boost the start and Start Over really made me 'check' myself.

For my review, I have decided to share amazing quotes Mary Jaksch used throughout the book to motivate the reader.  It is a good work book, short but with a punch.
