Every day, life offers us countless gifts. Some – like a well-timed green light, the perfect birthday present, a good mattress, and a hot shower – are easy to appreciate and gladly accepted. Others – like caregiving, waiting in line, and bad weather – can be more difficult to acknowledge.

This collection of inspirational quotes and accompanying questions helps us to slow down, look anew at each moment, and recognize its gifts, whether large or small, welcome or unwelcome, hidden or obvious.

Words of wisdom come from thinkers and doers around the globe and across the centuries, including Aristotle, James Baldwin, Dorothy Day, Simone de Beauvoir, Emily Dickinson, Rita Dove, Duke Ellington, Anne Frank, Thich Nhat Hahn, Helen Keller, John Muir, Maria Papova, Desmond Tutu, and Alan Watts.
“Any book that reminds us that life is a gift, is a gift in itself. This book is a true gift.” — Jack Kornfield, best-selling author of No Time like the Present and A Path with Heart

“Everyday Gratitude overflows with an abundance of blessings for all of us.” — Lynne Twist, best-selling author of The Soul of Money

Über den Autor A Network for Grateful Living

Grateful Living is a global, nonprofit organization offering online and community-based educational programs and practices that inspire and guide a commitment to grateful living, and catalyze the transformative power of personal and societal responsibility. Based in Hadley, Massachusetts, they are the force behind the best-selling Everyday Gratitude and Everyday Gratitude Frame-Ups. Kristi Nelson is the author of Wake Up Grateful and an ambassador for Grateful Living. She has a master’s degree in public administration from the Harvard Kennedy School and has spent more than 30 years in nonprofit leadership, development, and consulting. She has worked at the Center for Mindfulness in Medicine, Kripalu Center for Yoga and Health, and the Soul of Money Institute. Nelson is a Stage IV cancer survivor who cherishes living among friends and family in western Massachusetts. As a scholar, writer, and social activist, Brother David Steindl-Rast has shared messages of peace, interfaith dialogue, social justice, and environmental stewardship worldwide for more than 50 years in spoken and written word that is both thoughtful and occasionally infused with beauty, wonderment, and wit. His TEDtalk Want to Be Happy? Be Grateful has garnered over 5 million views and thousands of people a day tap into the interactive online community he co-founded, A Network for Grateful Living, for information and guidance on the transformative power of gratefulness as a mindfulness practice.
