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?Read more ›
For anyone looking for inspiration in their life this is the book to read.
It was one of those books that made you stop, think and look at yourself on how you are
living life. I would highly recommend this book.
