365 Days of Gratitude by Mariëlle S. Smith

Today I’m sharing a review of a new non fiction resource/book as part of the publication day push organised by Rachel of Rachel’s Random Resources.


‘Gratitude is the wine for the soul. Go on. Get drunk.’ Rumi

Being grateful is easy…

…when everything goes according to plan.

But how do you keep at it no matter what life throws at you?

Enter 365 Days of Gratitude, the undated daily journal that will help you stay on track.

After years of barely surviving her own emotional minefield, writing coach Mariëlle S. Smith discovered the transformative power of practising gratitude. But, like no one else, she knows that cultivating an attitude of gratitude is easier said than done.

Complete with inspiring quotes, daily prompts, and recurring check-ins, the 365 Days of Gratitude Journal encourages you to create a sustainable gratitude practice too.

My thoughts:

Thank you to Mariëlle for a PDF copy of her publication, my thoughts are my own and not influenced by the gift.

Across the world, 2020 has been a challenge for many people, with a global pandemic, extreme weather conditions and anxiety about the future. Through chatting to friends (mostly online) and seeing social media posts, many people are feeling anxious and/or depressed.

This book cannot remove what you are worried about, but it could give you the small steps you need to move forward. After the author introduction, you have 365 pages to fill in, one for every day. By identifying 3 things you are grateful for (e.g. the sun dried the washing), you can then give the day a rating out of 5 or 10 (or any number you choose). Amongst the sections to complete, is ‘Intention for tomorrow’ which can help you plan for the future.

This seems like a useful resource for many people and is easy to use. There are recaps at the end of each month, and the end of each quarter too. A modern day diary of positivity if used properly.
