Kelly H. (Maybedog)
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

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.

I won this book in a Goodreads Giveaway. My opinions stated here are how I feel about the book.
This book is actually a companion to a book called Simple Abundance. I have not read that book. I am thinking of getting it. You do not need to read it to enjoy this book.
I have always been a grateful type of person. My experience with life has been more difficult than easy, starting in childhood and continuing through adulthood. I believe that when you are repeatedly hurt as a child you come to

This has a lot of pages to write in. It has a lot of good lists of things to make you st art thinking of what you are greatful of, the only thing I think I would change is more prompts instead of an actual journal type with a lot of empty pages. It works with the concept though, I would just like to see a little more things to think about!

I have over 20 years of these journals, all filled out every day, I could look back on this exact day in say 2006 and know exactly what I was grateful for that day. I will do this for the rest of my life. I am quite sure this is why my life always "works" even with all the s*** I am thrown sometimes. It causes me to watch out for things I’m grateful for, even if it is just Marmite on Toast for breakfast. I am clear this ritual of writing the 5 things I am grateful for (for years) contributes ...more

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 ...more

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.

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.
