Chicken Soup for the Soul: Think Positive Giveaway


I have to constantly remind myself to be more positive, so this is a great book for me and anyone else who needs that reminder!

Every cloud has a silver lining. With its 101 stories of optimism, faith, and strength, this book will encourage readers to stay positive during challenging times and in their everyday lives. Readers will be inspired by these real-life stories from people just like them, taking a positive attitude to the ups and downs of life, and remembering to be grateful and count their blessings. This book continues Chicken Soup for the Soul's focus on inspiration and hope and its stories remind us that each day holds something to be thankful for. A great start to the New Year.

The book is divided into 10 sections, including Health Challenges, Role Models, Moving Forward, and more.  Every Day a Friday intrigued me with its title!  From it you learn to celebrate every day, not just Fridays!  Breakfast with a Friend is a sweet story about the most unlikely of friendships.  No Complaints drew me in because sometimes I want to remember not to complain.  If the lady in this story could not complain, so can I!

I am pleased to offer a copy of Chicken Soup for the Soul: Think Positive - 101 Inspirational Stories about Counting Your Blessings and Having a Positive Attitude to 3 winners.
