“Good night now, and rest. Today was a test. You passed it, you’re past it. Now breathe till unstressed.”
So I may have mentioned this before, but I’ll say it again for those who don’t know: I absolutely love Lin-Manuel Miranda. I think he is oh so talented and basically the most inspiring person of our time. And now he’s created the most adorable, uplifting book I’ve ever laid eyes on.
Gmorning, Gnight started off as a daily tweet routine by Lin in 2011. Every morning, he’d wish his followers a good morning, and every night, he’d wish them a good night. With every message, he’d write a little poem, a few words of encouragement, something nice to end or start the day on. He’s kept the tradition up for the past 7 years (he still posts them daily if you wanna check them out on his Twitter) but now he’s put some of the best ones down in this book.
I really loved reading this book. It went by so quickly, since it’s only about 200 pages and there are only a few lines per page. But the little time I had with this book was lovely. Every passage was so uplifting and empowering. I took to putting Post-Its on the pages of my favourite passages, but that ended up being about 90% of the pages lol. I loved everything so so so much. Lin really has an incredible way of putting things into perspective and making you really appreciate the small things in life.
This would be a great book for anyone, but especially I think it’d be the perfect Christmas gift this year. It’d also make a pretty great graduation gift too, I’d imagine! If you’re just looking for a cute, easy read then definitely pick this up :)
Are you a Lin-Manuel fan, like me?
