An illustrated guide to gratitude. MJ Ryan has taught us that everything goes better with gratitude! In 1999, she wrote Attitudes of Gratitude, a popular, best-selling book that extols the benefits of living with a grateful heart. When we let ourselves feel and express our appreciation, we feel happier, younger, and healthier. Now Ryan has taken the essence of living a grateful life from the original book and paired it with beautiful and evocative images in Giving Thanks. From the book: Gratitude connects us to others and feeling gratitude allows us to be our best selves — in good times and in hard times. When we are truly grateful, we can count on living the life we want. With the "e;gratitude movement"e; sweeping the country — from left to right, from conservative to progressive, from mainstream to alternative — people are looking for ways to express their gratitude. This impeccable book is a colorful map of the geography of gratitude, and it offers a wonderful opportunity for readers to learn a variety of ways to be grateful. It is also a beautiful "e;thank you"e; gift in itself.
