Every once in a while a little book comes along that carries with it a huge impact. Attitudes of Gratitude by M. J. Ryan is one these treasures.

I know it's been out for a while, and I'd always meant to pick it up, but never seemed to get around to it. I always thought "Oh what else is there to know about gratitude?" Then I received the 10th anniversary edition (from the publisher - they asked me to review it) and I decided to give it a read.

From the first page I was absolutely smitten! This book had WAY more about gratitude than I'd believed possible!

One of the chapters that had the most impact on me was Gratitude Releases Us From the "Gimmes." Here M. J. talks about the pleasures of shopping... how buying stuff makes us feel better. This is so true! I know that if I'm feeling down, there is nothing like a new purse or book to lift my spirits. However, the high eventually wears off, and there I am with those same old feelings again. M. J. suggests that we express appreciation for what we already have; to notice something special about something that is already ours.

"That's when I discovered one of the greatest gifts of gratitude - it gets us off the consuming treadmill so many of us are caught on."

She says that just as when we are dieting, it's important to wait 20 minutes after a meal before we'll feel full - it's the same with our need to shop. If we take time to express gratitude for what we already have, it fills us on an emotional and spiritual level so that we are no longer hungry for buying!

There was just so much about this book to appreciate! It's enlightening, enjoyable and educational! Did you know that expressing gratitude can help to improve our physical health?

This may be one of the most important books ever written. Yes, that's a dramatic statement, but this book can change your life. Of-course, any change requires honesty on the part of the reader. Once you begin to lower your defenses and recognize how important life view is, the idea of practicing true gratitude begins to make absolute sense. I am not the "new age, hippy-dippy, touchy-feely" type person. This is not a "lets look at life through rose colored glasses" book. Instead, Ryan forces you to consider how recognizing what you have versus what you think you need/want can change everything. I so love this book that I've bought numerous copies to share with family, friends, co-workers and members of my women's group. Everyone who has read this book has come back to buy copies for their own loved ones. It is truly that wonderful.

We can always use the encouragement to be more grateful, and this book is a good resource in preparing for a class or a women's retreat. It would make a nice gift too.

The chapters were very inspiriing and had me start a gratitude journal. It made me think about being more grateful for what I do have and not feel so bad for what I don't have. It was also a very good calming book to read.

This book helps you understand ....that if we choose to be more grateful for our lives and kinder towards others than we will feel much more happier. The stories are beautifully written and make you realize no matter how much OR how little you have....you always have something to be grateful for. Show it in your attitude and see what happens ;)
