In my quest to find amazing inspiring books to read I came across a real gem in the bargain section of the local book store just the other day. “A Simple Act of Gratitude” by John Kralik. This book is the story of a lawyer who finds himself in the worst stages of his life. Facing huge debt, a divorce and actually in the beginning of the book being lost. While searching for his way home from the trails of the Hollywood hills he is inspired to write a thank you note. Not to anyone specific, but he decides to write one thank you note a day for an entire year. Without ruining the book for you, he doesn’t quite make it, but what he learns about himself and others is truly amazing. Not to mention the effect is has on his life. Ask yourself, when was the last time you sent a thank you card? Even just a little note to show appreciation to someone who might have made your day? It may seem awkward at first, but trust me when I tell you it becomes rather fun once you get started. Just like the compliment post from a few days back, soon you will just find yourself in the habit of looking for something to be grateful for and someone to thank. When you are focused on being grateful for all you have it only brings more great things to you. Still not sold on the idea? I encourage you to take a look at this book. It may not only change your mind, but change your life.
