Praise for Love Each Day

"This book of poignant, inspirational, and moving stories gives us a glimpse into other people's lives and an opportunity to tap into our own life scripts. The touching experience of each individual demonstrates that life is to be celebrated, shared,
and cherished."
--Irene Watson, author of
The Sitting Swing: Finding Wisdom to Know the Difference

"Should you live your life as if each day were your last? Love Each Day answers this question by showing us that 'living each day so you would want to live it again' is a much better formula for happiness. From famous individuals like Apollo astronaut Edgar Mitchell and professional baseball player Huston Street, to police officers, moms, and everyday people, Love Each Day inspires us with true stories from real life."
--Kenneth J.M. MacLean, author of
The Vibrational Universe and Conversations with my Higher Selff

"Loving each day is essential in order to live in joy and fulfillment. The stories within Love Each Day remind us that each day is a life, each day is a new world,
each day is another opportunity to bless and be blessed."

--Lee Lawson, artist and author, Visitations from the Afterlife

    I can see why someone would like these stories, but I found them

    I can see why someone would like these stories, but I found them to be kind of pointless. Yes, the individuals in the stories had good days, but I don't see why all of them were inspirational.

    Review:

    Being a recent college graduate, I liked the approach Love Each Day took to defining a meaningful life, and how each day, or better yet, each action can open new doors and create new opportunities. I agree that life is meant to be lived and experienced, not just muddled through, and these short stories of personal experiences reaffirmed it for me. I only wish there had been a more diverse set of stories considering the collection's short length. In the end attitude is one of the keys to having a fulfilled and meaningful (to the individual) life. Overall a good read; and recommended.

    Rating: Bounty's Out (3/5)

    *** I received this book from LibraryThing Member Giveaways in exchange for an honest and unbiased review.

    Learn to see the beauty in life

    Love Each Day is a collection of 40 "true inspirational stories" that truly are moving and encouraging. In her introduction, the author notes that, "For many of us, too many days are diluted and even destroyed by worry, emotional stress, and obligatory work.hundreds of days fade each year into oblivion, lost in a blur of busyness." (pg. iii). Just how does the "average" person stay motivated through the mundane daily chores of life? We can't expect to witness a miracle every day, nor can we live every day as if it's our last. Why? Because while it's easy to say, if it were your last day, you'd make decisions and do things that you'd never do if you knew you had to pay your heating bill the next day! No, says the author, those things won't work. We need to see, and appreciate, the beauty in the world around us and she shows us how by providing examples from others. Whether rich, poor, famous, or unknown, those featured in this book have discovered the true beauty of life and share their experiences for the benefit of readers. At three or four pages each, the individual stories in Love Each Day don't take long to read. There is a short introduction to each person at the start of their chapter, followed by the event that holds the most meaning to them. There is no analysis provided by the author, just the thoughts of the person retelling the story - why the memory holds meaning to them. I found this very effective as each individual had a different idea of what was important, but when brought together in one book, the life lessons all merged together. And together, they prove that whether it's meeting your future bride or winning the Nobel Prize, you must learn to treasure what truly matters to YOU. One of the nicest things about this book was the insightful remarks found throughout that could become mantras for staying positive and enjoying life. From, "everyone perceives beauty in a different way," (pg. 18) to a collection of quotes at the end of the book such as, "every day is precious and every moment you can either talk to your family or be with them is a blessing," (pg. 118), you'll walk away from this book with a plethora of new sayings to keep you optimistic. Because each story is relatively brief and independent of the others, this is the perfect book to flip through and read when you need some inspiration. Each chapter has a topic heading so you have a good idea of the theme and there's no need to read the chapters in order. Indeed, you may prefer to move around to find stories that seem particularly well suited to your life. But don't be surprised if a topic that seems completely out of your realm is the one that really hits home. When you need to be reminded of the important things in life, or you want a warm and fuzzy feeling from reading wonderful, meaningful stories, start reading Love Each Day. Quill says: Through Love Each Day, the author teaches us how to see the beauty in the simplest of events and to truly enjoy life.
