Cleo wade is a poet, artist and author with a huge following on Instagram. She created a book that is equivalent to having a heart talk with a friend. She has poems, story stories, lessons written into a book that is mean’t to be a pep talk for every reader. There are images, handwritten poems and more in this book about growth and reflection. I could not wait to speak in detail about this poetic wisdom book.
My favorite poem/lesson:
“Love yourself enough to walk into only the rooms and situations that show care and love for you. Love yourself enough to walk out of the rooms that harm you in any way. Love yourself enough to hold the people who harm you accountable for their words and actions. Love yourself enough to express your wants, your needs, and your desires. Love yourself enough to tell the truth. Love yourself enough to keep yourself safe. Love yourself enough to say enough is enough when enough has become enough.”
Cleo Wade created a book for wisdom on having a better life. She was able to give affirmations, poetry, lessons and talks about what she believes could help someone have a better life. The book had a good balance of poetry, affirmations and story lessons. I enjoyed the book because of the context, simplicity and the wisdom that was presented. The poetry was simple and relatable but I wanted it to be longer and more impactful.
The “poems” were more of statements or affirmations if compared to poetry. Wade continued to stay on topic when she discussed different ways to have a better life. The book was as if you were talking to a friend and discussing ways to be happier. The lessons given in a short story form were great advice for an older audience because of the topics discussed. The book did give me wisdom on things that I can work on to being happier. The advice on being happier was something that we hear all the time if we were to watch youtube videos on wisdom, motivation and happiness. There is not a specific lesson that I have never heard before but it was a reminder on reflection, growing and loving oneself. Overall, I think anyone that reads this book would take something from it after reading.
