‘Gratitude is the wine for the soul. Go on. Get drunk.’ Rumi

Being grateful is easy…

…when everything goes according to plan.

But how do you keep at it no matter what life throws at you?

Enter 365 Days of Gratitude, the undated daily journal that will help you stay on track.

After years of barely surviving her own emotional minefield, writing coach Mariƫlle S. Smith discovered the transformative power of practising gratitude. But, like no one else, she knows that cultivating an attitude of gratitude is easier said than done.

Complete with inspiring quotes, daily prompts, and recurring check-ins, the 365 Days of Gratitude Journal encourages you to create a sustainable gratitude practice too.

I admit I was sceptical when I first saw this opportunity to review Marielle S Smith's new book, 365 Days Of Gratitude Journal. I had generally connected the concept of daily gratitude with religious practice and hadn't thought of it as something that could really work for me. However, on receiving my copy a month ago, I decided to take the project seriously for a month leading up to my review and have surprised myself with its positive results!

I am impressed with the thought that Marielle has put into the page layouts throughout 365 Days Of Gratitude Journal. Open coloured boxes for each prompt, rather than intimidating ruled lines, mean that I could use larger handwriting for my (awkwardly stilted!) first entries. Despite my early embarrassment and lack of ideas, those pages still look completed and I have noticed my writing shrinking in size as my thoughts become more fluid. Marielle's weekly and monthly overview pages are a great tool for recognising personal growth. I especially liked these opportunities to evaluate my progress.

I am much more practiced now at both acknowledging 'spots of luck' through each day and at remembering them to note in my evening journal. The daily ritual has also noticeably lifted my mood because I am focused on positives. It's a wonderfully self-perpetuating hobby and I am certainly grateful to Marielle and Rachel's Random Resources blog tours for opening my eyes!
