Gratitude is an extremely powerful spiritual tool. It is an extremely powerful healing principle. It is an extremely powerful happiness principle.
Cultivating an attitude of gratitude is perhaps one of the greatest gifts we can give to ourselves. Michele Wahlder, an internationally-recognized life coach, career counselor, speaker and gratitude enthusiast, has written a new book, alphatudes, the alphabet of gratitude, which can help us to do this.
alphatudes, using the letters of the alphabet, spells out 26 spiritual solutions to help individuals develop a perspective of gratitude in order to cope with the challenges of life. It is an enjoyable read which combines illustrations, quotes, text, affirmations and prayers emphasizing the power and importance of gratitude as a transformational model to enable us to enrich our daily experiences and maximize the potentials we have within us for inner peace and happiness.
Insofar as gratitude is a mind-set which, when embraced, helps us maintain a positive attitude free of resentments and worry, heightens our awareness and appreciation of the blessings we have in our lives despite any difficulties we may be facing, and helps us to attract opportunities that will benefit rather than hinder our growth and happiness, alphatudes is a worthy addition to one’s self-help library.
