If you need to hear positive affirmations, this is the book for you. I’m not too aware of Lin-Manuel’s work apart from Hamilton, but I definitely want to see more. His positive affirmations came from his Twitter feed when he tweeted a series of AM/PM tweets. The book is short and sweet, filled with uplifting poetry for both ‘morning’ and ‘night’. Lin Manuel’s poetry is accompanied with illustrations from Jonny Sun.
This book will make you feel warm and fuzzy and is a joy to read. It’s encouraging, witty and make you feel in all the right places. Lin-Manuel Miranda is an absolute beam of sunshine and I’ve yet to hear anything negative about him at all. I often find that a lot of published work from influencers and famous people lacks purpose and passion and this proves me wrong. Gmorning, Gnight!: Little Pep Talks for Me & You has such a strong purpose and you can tell that Lin Manuel Miranda genuinely cares about enriching the lives of others. I really liked the concept and execution of Gmorning, Gnight!: Little Pep Talks for Me & You.
By having a series of AM/PM affirmations, Lin-Manuel notes that it is just as important to rest up and recharge than it is to take charge and make positive actions in our day. The AM/PM affirmations mirror each other perfectly. You can approach this book at random or as a regular book. One of the biggest takeaways is to be kind to yourself and admire and treasure everything that makes you who you are.
As mentioned, the illustrations accompany the poetry so well and it was definitely as much as a joy to see Jonny’s illustrations as it was to read Lin-Manuel’s affirmations.
There is an audiobook of Gmorning, Gnight!: Little Pep Talks for Me & You which sounds amazing. The idea of someone, let alone Lin-Manuel himself, speak to you about encouragement and self-love sounds so special. However, you won’t be able to visualise the lovely illustrations from the book.
Gmorning, Gnight!: Little Pep Talks for Me & You by Lin-Manuel Miranda is a short and simple book but it will definitely put a smile on yourself. And that’s just what we need.
