Readers may visit to know more about the book that is themed with personal development and growth through life's lessons. Hallmark believes that the book is relevant in the society today as people are very interested in improving their quality of life in the areas that are not materially based.

The entries in the book detail Hallmark's personal struggles and accomplishments. She shares some general life lessons and inspiration in the hopes of providing encouragement for those who also may be struggling. "I want others to know they are not alone, that they always have options and to never give up on themselves or their dreams," she shares.

An excerpt from the book:
My greatest inspiration was, is, and likely always will be Wayne Dyer. His writings and teachings have impacted my life in ways I'm not sure I could properly articulate; the best description I could use would be that they have inspired a pivotal moment in my soul's evolution. My path has evolved in so many positive ways, and this has elevated my desire to cultivate a healthier and more compassionately engaged world, one soul at a time.
