Book Description

March 1 1999
Gratitude creates a powerful state of happiness because it returns us to the natural place where we notice what's right instead of what's wrong. In Attitudes of Gratitude, M. J. Ryan teaches us how to unlock the fullness of life through the expression and exercise of a grateful heart. In a series of short, easy-to-digest and evocative essays, she inspires us to discover and distill a sense of gratitude in very aspect of our lives and offers practical suggestions to help us focus on all that we have, rather than our perception of what may be lacking and explains why gratitude chases away negative emotions - and how it's possible even in times of pain and hardship.

M.J. Ryan is the editorial director of Conari Press, publisher of the best-selling "Random Acts of Kindness" series. She is the author of Attitudes of Gratitude, 365 Health and Happiness Boosters, and The Giving Heart, and editor of A Grateful Heart and The Fabric of the Future. She lives in the San Francisco Bay Area with her husband and daughter.

5.0 out of 5 stars A Lesson to learn in every short passage... March 19 2002
By juryco
Format:Hardcover
I love this book more than any other that I own. The reason is that I read one passage every night before I go to sleep and it gives me so much to think about in improving my life. I limit myself to reading only one per night so that I can concentrate on the points of the particular essay of the night. I am almost to the end of the book and plan to begin rereading it and continuing to do so until I have the messages embedded in my brain and heart!!! This book is for everyone--I recommend you buy more than one copy and give them as gifts because I don't think you'll want to lend your copy out!!!

5.0 out of 5 stars Beautiful... Nov. 2 2001
By A Customer
Format:Paperback
This book actually succeeded in changing the way I view my life. I started reading a small section of the book every day at my desk before I started the day along with keeping a daily journal and over the course of a few months, I have found that I get so much more joy out of life. I notice and appreciate beauty that has always been surrounding me, but that I've never taken note of before.
It's wonderful and I recommend it to everyone. It makes a great gift, too! (especially for someone who always seems to see the glass as half empty!) What's better than the gift of joy?

I really appreciate this book because it gives an honest realistic way of cultivating gratitude in one's life. The author comes from a very driven, competetive mindset and shares her gentle awakening into the joys of living apart from "achieving". I respect her view more than I would someone who wrote from a "Pollyanna" point of view. Nothing worse than feeling guilty about not being grateful enough! The book is spiritually based and emphasizes acceptance. I read a page after my meditation in the morning. Great stuff!!

4.0 out of 5 stars Portable, Yet Profound Jan. 6 2002
Format:Hardcover
The ideas in this book are presented in a series of essays. Even if you only read a few pages a day, you'll learn something valuable. I found the quotes used at the beginning of each section to be very inspiring, and have copied several of them into my journal. The book is a perfect size to be easily carried in a knapsack or purse if you want to read a section a day as a daily meditation. Overall, this book has been helpful to me in my quest to begin practicing an attitude of gratitude.
