Some of the book focuses on how to organize your life and explains how goal setting should be a priority. There is also a great chapter on how to have a better life by not watching TV. I can say from personal experience that the author is correct about this. I don't miss the stress of watching the news! I get my news online and can pick and choose what I want to know.

While Olie Hille has some good financial advice he also has some great advice about finding the right partner for life. He also includes a chapter on raising kids.

Living in Gratitude


5.0 out of 5 stars What a Beautiful Gift to the World, October 13, 2011

"Gratitude is a feeling that spontaneously emerges from within. However, it is not simply an emotional response; it is also a choice we make." ~ pg. 3

A lot of people have the belief that if you are grateful for your life then you will be happy. "Living in Gratitude" is a book meant to be read over the course of a year. It is a twelve-month journey that includes wisdom from all around the world. Angeles Arrien believes we should make gratitude a daily practice because it improves our health and well-being. She explains how when we look for the good in others we automatically become more compassionate.

What I especially liked about this book is the section on practices at the end of each chapter. The questions asked also could be used as inspiration for writing in a gratitude journal.

Some of the topics covered in this book include forgiveness, generosity, humility, mercy, tolerance, joy, respect, peace, love and wisdom. Also throughout the book Angeles Arrien explains how different cultures express gratitude. She also explains "nature deficit disorder." Don't you feel more grateful when you get out in nature? I often feel gratitude when I look up at the night sky.

"Living in Gratitude" is a beautiful gift to the world. Reading this book made me instantly feel happy. I know that if I practice being grateful it will bring even more happiness into my life.
