Keep Moving by Maggie Smith
A meditation on kindness and hope, and how to move forward through grief.” —NPR
“A shining reminder to learn all we can from this moment, rebuilding ourselves in the darkness so that we may come out wiser, kinder, and stronger on the other side.” —The Boston Globe
For fans of Anne Lamott and Cleo Wade, a collection of quotes and essays on facing life’s challenges with creativity, courage, and resilience.
When Maggie Smith, the award-winning author of the viral poem “Good Bones,” started writing inspirational daily Twitter posts in the wake of her divorce, they unexpectedly caught fire. In this deeply moving book of quotes and essays, Maggie writes about new beginnings as opportunities for transformation. Like kintsugi, the Japanese art of mending broken ceramics with gold, Keep Moving celebrates the beauty and strength on the other side of loss. This is a book for anyone who has gone through a difficult time and is wondering: What comes next?

Although I know author Maggie Smith had no idea her book would be published during a pandemic, Keep Moving, could not have come at a better time for so many of us. I have always found so much comfort in affirmations that allow us to not only self reflect but continue on our paths forward.
While our feelings of grief and loss can all be deeply personal, there is also a collective feeling of being in something hard when we just feel connected and heard. Maggie Smith’s writing is relatable and has the perfect balance of being a reminder of who we are and who we can still become while also celebrating the struggles and the joys of the messy “in-between”.
