Living Life as a Thank You Review and GIVEAWAY! **ENDED**

  Living Life as a Thank You: The Transformative Power of Daily Gratitude

Living Life as a Thank You: The Transformative Power of Daily Gratitude – Nina Lesowitz and Mary Beth Sammons (Viva Editions)
 Living as if each day is a thank you can help transform fear into courage, anger into forgiveness, and isolation into belonging. The book presents an approach for incorporating gratitude into one's life and reaping its many benefits. The book is divided into the following sections:
o   Thank-You Power: Stay Well
o   Grateful for the Good Life: Keys to Living Your Life with Gratitude
o   Gratitude as a Spiritual Practice
o   Practicing Gratitude in Everyday Life
o   Staying Thankful in Difficult Times
o   The Power of Gratitude to Make a Difference in the World
o   Finding Grace and Wisdom in Goodbyes
o   Inspiration and Perspiration: All Parts Gratitude
o   Gratitude in Times of Transition
o   Putting Gratitude into Action: Gratitude Tools
Each chapter includes stories of individuals whose lives have been transformed by thankfulness, motivational quotes and blessings, and suggested gratitude practices.
Review: The stories were very motivational. They were thought-provoking and really liked the way they reinforced the concept of gratitude. The suggested gratitude practices were fabulous and gave time for reflection and encouraged implementation of these concepts into your life.  I liked reading one chapter a day. While I have not gotten through the entire book, I have found that reading a small chapter in the morning has allowed me to start my day on a very positive note.

Buy it here: The book retails for $15.95. It can be purchased at a discounted price from Amazon.

Win it here: One lucky Cake Mom reader is going to win a copy of Living Life as a Thank You!
