Yesterday, I was on the verge of losing my mind in miserable traffic with distracted drivers all around me. The interior of my car was full of hand gestures and profanity, and I was just getting started. While stopped at a red light, I saw a woman and a child, overtaken by grocery bags, literally risking their lives trying to cross this horrendous six-lane road full of stupid-head drivers. I don't know the woman's situation. Maybe she had no choice or maybe she did...but it made me pause and ...more

Everyday Gratitude is a collection of quotes from authors, spiritual leaders including monks and rabbis, and other well known people from history along with some I’d never heard of. Intended to make you think about your own life, each quote is accompanied by a question that encourages you in one or more of the following:
“1. STOP: Pause and awaken.
2. LOOK: Become aware of the gifts and opportunities around you.
3. GO: Take action based on gratefulness and great-fulness.”
“Though you may not

I thought this would be a nice book to read between fiction as we can all do with a little inspiration from time to time. Beautifully colourful and bursting with quotes from well-known minds such as Maya Angelou, Confucius and Anne Frank, this uplifting book reminds you to cherish what you have and take advantage of the opportunities that may arise in future - the original reflections and exercises will help you in that journey.

I've made it a ritual to read at least one quote or passage or do one activity the book recommends every morning and it has never failed to make me smile and appreciate everything around me.

Everyday Gratitude: Inspiration for Living Life as a Gift is a beautiful book in all ways. Visually appealing (colorful and multiple script types), the book offers a collection of quotes each with a corresponding question to challenge you to look at your own life with regards to the quote's context. There are also simple practices to encourage gratefulness, and the values of kindness, interconnection, compassion, sufficiency and love. The author explains that each quote, question and practice ...more

I really wanted to like this book. I thought it would be the perfect book to help cultivate gratefulness as we approached Thanksgiving. While I did like some things about it, it wasn’t the book I was hoping for.

This is a book of quotes meant to help you “connect with the gifts of life.” Underneath each quote is a question to get you thinking more on the topic. I liked the bright colors in the book. I liked a few of the quotes like this one….”If we take the time, no matter how crazy and troubled

Everyday Gratitude: Inspiration for Living Life as a Gift is a beautifully illustrated book full of uplifting quotes.

It’s not a guide per se but rather an inspirational book.

Every page has a visually appealing quote from likes of Maya Angelou, Anne Frank and many more.

At the bottom of each quote is a question that prompts you to think about what you just read and how it could be applied to your everyday life.

I think Everyday Gratitude could be an excellent coffee table book as you could pick

Paperback edition - Such a beautiful and rich chunky compilation chock full of quotes pertaining to Inspiration and Gratitude! Gorgeous watercolor pages. Highly recommend! :-)

Some of my favorites:

"Sometimes our light goes out, but is blown again into instant flame by an encounter with another human being." ~Albert Schweitzer

"I want to be famous in the way a pulley is famous, or a buttonole, not because it did anything spectacular, but because it never forgot what it could do." ~Naomi Shihab Nye

This is a great book for those looking to add some gratitude into their lives. Each page of the book has a quote on gratitiude along with a question to help you think even more about the importance of the quote. There are a lot of quotes included in the book by a wide range of people including Maya Angelou, Joan Baez, Joseph Campbell, Dorothy Day, Mark Nepo, and Willie Nelson, plus many more. Each page has a different artistic style that goes with the quote well. It is a great book for taking a ...more

This is a beautiful book to look through as the graphics are beautiful. The quotes are heartwarming and I loved reading through them. My only criticism is that I expected more from the book. I wanted to dive deep into reflections and questions, but I honestly didn’t feel any of that from the book. It would make a beautiful coffee table book, but if you are looking for something to sink into, this isn’t it. Maybe it was just that my expectations were high after reading the book jacket. I so ...more

A cute little book of deep inspirational quotes on gorgeous watercolor backgrounds I got for my birthday from my best friend. At the bottom of each page there is a question asking how you can apply the quote to your own life. I will probably take out my favorite quotes and either frame them or make a collage.

Everyday Gratitude is a colorful and bright book that deeply researches the topic of finding gratitude and joy in our daily life. It's one of those books that come to you at that particular moment in life when you feel you need insight and motivation the most, but also helps to make every moment that special one, to enrich your life philosophy and deepen your understanding of yourself. Every quote has a question accompanying it, and each question both gives a particular explanation to the quote ...more

I have read many books on gratitude, and struggle to remember to practice it in everyday life. I love this book because it contains so many inspiring quotes, many of which I had never seen before, and they are presented in a beautiful visual format with bright watercolors. But I especially love the question that comes with each quotation, and I can really see where having this beside me throughout my day will assist me in grounding myself in gratitude on a daily basis. I like the idea of ...more

I was able to read Everyday Gratitude for free from Netgalley, the publisher and the author for providing me with an ARC in exchange for an honest review.
The book will uplift you when you need it the most and it will also remind you of how grateful we should be.
It is a very colorful book with original quotes and exercises. It is a good book to use while doing your daily bible reading or just to have by your beside. It will hep you get a bit more of gratitude, inspiration and motivation.

This book does two Q's - Quotes & Questions. Quotes that inspire us and questions that force us to think through and personalise the quote for ourselves.

Great book that forces us to think about questions that matter, if we want, do it every single day...

This is a lovely little gift book. Each page has a quote and inspirational question written on top of a watercolor-painted page.

I received an ARC from NetGalley. The book will be released on April 3, 2018.
