Forces you to think positively every day. I found it easy to find things I was thankful for so I gave myself the task of finding a different five things every day, no repeats. (Otherwise I'd say over and over again, I'm thankful for my family, for my health, for my dogs, etc.) Some days were harder than others but I did it before I went to sleep and it ended my day on a positive note. Sure, it's very simplistic but it was nice and easier than a journal.

My mormon aunt and uncle gave this to me an
when life is coming at you a thousand miles and you think you have nothing to live for, make a list of five things you are grateful for.
It feels a bit like cheating to add this to Goodreads. This journal starts out with several pages about gratitude and its place in our attitudes and life. The rest of the book is split into weekly sections with five lines per day. Every morning I wake up and fill that day's lines with things I am grateful for. It is not always easy. On the second day I woke up in a puddle, because my waterbed had sprung a slow leak. My first thought was, "God ok, I can be grateful for this. I have a patch kit an ...more
Use to record 5 things daily to be grateful for.

This is a great way to start keeping track of things you are grateful for. I do a gratitude list everyday and also the adults I teach they call in their gratitude list to me everyday we have been doing this for years we call it the 5 things we call in 5 things we are grateful for each day can you imagine checking your voice mail feeling overwhelmed and someone is on there saying I am grateful for some of the simple things in life. gratitude will change your world .
My word this year is Gratitude. I am using the gratitude journal to help me in my journey towards recognizing all the wonderful things/people/events in my life. I have really liked having gratitude as my focus this year. This book was good until about september - I got tired of the repetition.
I read this book years ago and don't remember it specifically- but I have to give it 5 stars just because it inspired me to keep a gratitude journal, which I have off and on for years, and that has greatly enriched my life.
You don't really need the book. But, its a good way to encourage you do to it. Just list 5 things you are thankful for every day.

Implementing an abundance journal into my life made a huge difference in how I cope with those dark days and difficult times.
The jurnal in beautiful but I never would have used it if I did not take a workshop... The book alone is a lot to consume.
This is a gratitude journal and it's really personal. i like to write solmething at the end of each day or week.
A great companion to the book and makes you write down what you are thankful for each day.
Also a great idea, this is a journal so you can record all the things you are grateful for!
