"Every day is a Gift. Open it. Do not throw it away."
The relentless pace of the working day. Endless, unconquerable to-do lists. A constant sense of distraction and isolation despite countless online connections. In our increasingly complex world, true contentment has never felt further from reach.
The Simplest Gift is a vital antidote for our times. Over the course of one hundred stories--each centered around a unique lesson--Stefanos Xenakis shares the transformative outlook through which he has found purpose and meaning in life's everyday moments. From rising early to sharing generously and laughing readily, Xenakis proves that joy can be found in the simplest and least expected places. Humane, compassionate, and profound, this essential book teaches us how to love fully, live freely, and embrace the remarkable beauty of our humanity.
