Gratitude: Exercising Accounting & Accountability In The Power Of Choice by Leslie Juvin-Acker (read it on
Why Read It? Because you have the power to choose to be grateful, even when you don't feel like you have a lot to be grateful for.

  • Not everything that you experience is going to be awesome, but you have a choice on how to respond and let it effect you
  • Viewing adversity as opportunity opens the door to even more opportunities for now, or the future
  • You have the power to choose, even when you may not be aware of it

"Gratitude is the act of recognizing our power to choose, to select from the inventory of resources and wisdom available to us, and gives us a platform to act in accord with our authentic selves."
