I was having a conversation with another author on social media when InstaGrateful by Sheri Fink showed up on the RF review list. The conversation went along these lines. My friend said, “I’ve spent the past three hours responding to messages and posting on forums, not selling books, writing books, or marketing my books.” This is where InstaGrateful begins, discussing how we have allowed our social media feeds and profiles to become more important than us as people. I’m a great believer in synchronicity too, so the book went straight onto my ‘to read’ list. Part self-help, part autobiography, InstaGrateful imparts the wisdom of the ages through Sheri Fink’s unique perspective and life experiences. I’m a seasoned campaigner in this ride called life, so I’m aware of and am practicing much of what’s covered here. However, as Sheri Fink aptly notes, it’s worth hearing this advice at any stage of life because we’re not the same people as the last time we heard it. For me, it was a welcome refocus and reset.
I feel InstaGrateful: Finding Your Bliss in a Social Media World is going to resonate particularly well with women, regardless of whether they’re starting out on the ride or are already well-traveled, as certain topics are more specific to women. It’s still a book for men too as Sheri Fink has sound advice and tips for people from all walks of life. What I appreciate most about what she suggests is that each method for change is practical and achievable, regardless of your personal circumstances. I listened to the audiobook version of InstaGrateful, read by the author, and enjoyed hearing her impart her stories and advice in her own voice. My apologies to Sheri Fink, because I’m going to finish my review here. She says I should make more time for myself, so I’m going to book an appointment at the salon to get my nails done.
