Gratitude

This audiobook offers variety of strategies to cultivate and express gratitude in our daily lives. In addition to the spiritual benefits to showing gratitude, there are apparently health benefits gained as well when we show gratitude- which, if you think about it, makes total sense.

In addition to the strategies that are shared, the author provides an abundance of "quotable quotes" on thankfulness and gratitude. Although I enjoyed hearing the strategies, I preferred the quotes on gratitude. Some of my favorites are below:

*Gratitude is not only the greatest of virtues, but the parent of all others (Cicero)
*They do not love that do not show their love (Shakespeare)
*I murmured because I had no shoes, until I met a man who had no feet (Persian proverb)
*If you cannot be grateful for what you have received, then be thankful for what you have been spared (Yiddish proverb)
*Enjoy the little things, for one day you may look back and realize they were the big things (Robert Bralt)

Humility is one the most important qualities that a person can possess, and gratitude is the cornerstone of humility. This is an excellent audiobook for keeping gratitude top-of-mind, and it gives us practical strategies for cultivating and expressing gratitude in our daily lives.

I was provided this audiobook at no charge by the author, publisher and/or narrator in exchange for an unbiased review.
