Learn to be thankful for what you have.

Within this commoditized world, a way to make yourself stand out and, more importantly, relax your mind of worries is to feel immense gratitude for what you already have, rather than be burdened by that you don’t. A simple mind hack that can improve your life satisfaction tremendously overnight. Interested? Learn how to feel gratitude by reading these books.

I could not put this book down yet I also struggled to finish it, as I repeatedly delayed reading the final 30 or so pages because I didn’t want it to end. Really it was her writing that captivated me. I adored the language she used in her descriptives. Words were magically woven together leaving the reader most entertained while also being able to feel present in the story. I truly enjoyed the raw honesty with which Krystin shared the one year period of her life. This book was so light yet reached deep into my soul, making it an easy and delightful read. I highly recommend it.
