Shawn Léon Nowotnik makes the argument to his readers that everything in this world is a narrative. And that everybody has a narrative—a narrative, if willing, they can change. Whether you suffer from mental health, addiction, family, spiritual, financial, or other issues his books can help you. Sometimes, all you need are the right words at the right time to change how you see the world… including yourself.

These days, we need more inspiration to keep seeing a brighter day...each day. One of the many great quotes from Martin Luther King, Jr. that motivates me is, 

“If you can't fly then run, if you can't run then walk, if you can't walk then crawl, but whatever you do, you have to keep moving forward.”
