I turned my music off in order to give this book the justice it deserves.
365 Thank Yous by John Kralik, is a fantastic book. At 228 easy-to-read pages I was able to consume it in one sitting. And it was a good sitting at that!
John begins by explaining his life at age 53. It was fast failing. His business was being ravaged, his relationship with family was disintegrating; and he had quickly become overweight. In short, he was very unhappy.
In an attempt to make things better, he decided upon a simple act. It would take a year. The year a simple act of daily gratitude changed his life.
His decision was to simply write a thank you note to someone in his life each day. It was a way to show gratitude for those around him, and promoting in himself an attitude of gratitude. What resulted in his life, as he describes, was nothing short of a miracle. His firm began to “firm up,” his relationships improved, and he gained a better perspective.
This book was heartwarming. As the cover review states, “Profoundly honest and uplifting.” I would agree. It was a great look into the life of someone trying to be and do better. Don’t we all seek for the same?
I’m one for changing after reading a book – so I’m on my way to doing what John Kralik recommends. Write more thank you notes.
It’s been a few days – and three notes of mine are already in the mail. Look out. You could be next.
The book is available via Amazon and other retailers.
