Anyone who knows me personally knows that I'm a sucker for self-help books. Any publication that can give me tips on improving myself, I'm all for it. Maybe it's due to all of those years of dedicated Oprah watching. Whatever the reason, I can't seem to get enough of these feel-good guides. Ultimately, don't we all want to be the best versions of ourselves? The latest edition to my self-help library is The Gratitude Power Workbook: Transform Fear into Courage, Anger into Forgiveness, Isolation into Belonging by Nina Lesowitz and Mary Beth Sammons.
Available on Amazon.com and bookstores nationwide.
The book takes readers on an introspective ride of evaluating what it means to be grateful and how displaying gratitude can shift the course of our lives. Basically, the authors' goal is to make readers stop and smell the roses and look at the glass as half-full, instead of half-empty. Empowering quotes (I like to call them golden nuggets) and affirmations from notable scholars, authors and dignitaries such as Maya Angelou, Alex Haley, and John F. Kennedy are sprinkled throughout the book. Plus, there are plenty of fun exercises with blank pages and spaces for you to jot down your thoughts, ideas and goals.
If you have a lot to be grateful for and are in the mood for a motivating read, this book is a must-have!
