Synopsis: Giving gratitude is a virtue as old as the human race itself and taught to every child by every parent in every generation. Our ancestors have recorded this basic human value in writings and teachings extolling the benefits and the healing values of practicing gratitude throughout every age and in every culture. With the right perspective, gratitude is absolutely at the core of successful living.
In "Gratitude Keeper: A Year of Inspiration, One Day at a Time", author Dr. Maxine McLean offers a thoroughly 'user friendly' resource for tracking gratitude daily, a practice she believes can transform lives in a powerful way. "Gratitude Keeper" provides inspirational strategies for addressing the common human tendency of thinking negatively. "Gratitude Keeper" assists in creating a chronicle of positive vibrations and serves to enlighten your journey.
In addition, Dr. McLean has partnered with villagers from developing countries, and the gratitude project provides sustainable income to families worldwide and contributes to building water wells. Filled with personal life stories, inspirational quotes, lessons learned, affirmations, breath work, and meditations, "Gratitude Keeper" will guide you on your personal journey and helps to reboot your mind, invigorate your spirit, and better your health.
Critique: Exceptionally well written, inherently engaging, inspired and inspiring, impressively 'real world' practical in organization and presentation, "Gratitude Keeper" is unreservedly recommended as a permanent addition to Self-Help/Self-Improvement personal reading lists
