9780762786718: What Makes You Grateful?: Voices From Around The World

What began as a personal pick-me-up quickly became a feel-good phenomenon, tapping into the power of gratitude. In October 2011, Kubitsky began asking, "What makes you grateful?" and invited people to write or draw a glimmer of gladness on a postcard and mail it back to her. Placing blank invitation cards in public places like college cafeterias, post offices, parks, community centers, libraries, and cafes, she attempted to engage the community at large. Since then, she has received thousands of responses from all over the globe. In this beautiful book, Kubitsky shares a selection of submissions, including stunning artwork, heartbreaking stories, and sincere expressions of gratitude. From cupcakes to lightning strikes, this feel-good book gives voice to gratitude and the simple pleasures that make life great. If you like PostSecret, The Book of Awesome, or Chicken Soup for the Soul, start smiling. This book is all three wrapped into one!

About the Author:

Anne O. Kubitsky (or AOK), is an artist and writer with a background in Biology and Philosophy. On a whim in October 2011, Anne asked her community to write or draw a 'glimmer of gladness' on a postcard and mail it back to her--the project has since received responses from all over the world and grown into a traveling exhibit, a public art trail, a vibrant blog, and this inspirational book.  lookforthegoodproject.org 

Review:

"This lovely book renews and refreshes one’s trust in the goodness of humanity. Thankfulness is a human universal, as this collection of gratitudes from around the world proves. Inspiring and energizing—your own gratitude will increase after you read it."
--Robert A. Emmons, PhD, author of Thanks! and Gratitude Works!

“It’s one thing to break bad habits, but we can also choose to make habits that enrich us. Reading this book inspires me to more carefully notice what I have to be grateful for in each passing moment.”
--Faith Middleton, WNPR

"Anne Kubitsky challenges us to answer one of life's essential questions: What makes you grateful? We all know the importance of saying 'thank you.' But Kubitsky’s Look for the Good Project reminds us just how complex gratitude is and how important being grateful is for living a meaningful and fulfilling life. From finding gratitude in adversity to being grateful for holding a child's hand, people from all over the world show us the power of gratitude in making us fully human. If you're looking for inspiration and wisdom to help you connect to your spirit, What Makes You Grateful? is a must read. It will open your heart, mind, and soul giving you yet more reasons to be grateful." 
-- Jeffrey J. Froh, Psy.D., Hofstra University, Co-author of Making Grateful Kids:A Scientific Approach for Helping Youth Thrive
