We tend to think of gratitude as something we practice once in a while. But Kristi Nelson, author of Wake Up Grateful and executive director of A Network for Grateful Living, sees it differently. To her, gratitude is about living a grateful way of life and cultivating a perspective of gratefulness that influences our entire approach to how we show up in life. With a ‘take nothing for granted’ commitment to living, Kristi invites us to explore what it means to treasure, savor, appreciate, cherish and celebrate our lives.
