What does it mean to truly live gratefully, every day? In Wake Up Grateful, Kristi Nelson, executive director of A Network for Grateful Living, unlocks the path to recognizing abundance in every moment, and gives readers the tools to bring this transformational shift in perspective into their daily lives. Nelson goes beyond the proverbial question of whether the glass is half full or half empty, and encourages readers to awaken to the gift of having a glass at all. With questions for reflection, daily exercises, and perspective prompts for appreciating the fullness of life as it is, right now, this book promises profound personal change through the practice of taking nothing for granted.
“Hugely inspiring and helpful.” — Jon Kabat-Zinn
“The most valuable spiritual guidebooks, the kind you keep next to your bed, are grounded in the writer's personal awakening. Cancer taught Kristi Nelson to accept the uncertainty and impermanence of life, and through that she discovered gratefulness as a path to healing and wholeness. Now she offers it to us, and it is a blessing to receive.” — Mirabai Bush, Senior Fellow, Center for Contemplative Mind in Society and coauthor of Walking Each Other Home: Conversations on Loving and Dying
“Kristi Nelson has written a book absolutely packed with information that is both inspiring and practical. This is a difficult balance to achieve, and she has done it beautifully. Put this book on your nightstand and read a little bit every day.” — Stephen Cope, Scholar Emeritus, Kripalu Center for Yoga and Health and best-selling author of The Great Work of Your Life
