I had mixed feelings overall. I felt some moments of "she bragging about her wealth" (having all of her friends fly to Maui to celebrate her birthday, and considering flying out a musician to honor her was a little too much) as well as moments when I felt there was little beneath some of her statements, that her words did not have enough meaning to to support her exclamations. But I also had some aha moments. When she talks about her personal story more (such as her beginnings, the abuse she faced, and how she's struggled with weight and where she is now) this has more meaning for me. It also made me want to read some of the authors she quoted or talked about, Eckhart Tolle for instance.

Okay, I'll admit it – I like Oprah. While I don't agree with everything she says, I admire the way she provides inspiration for so many. This book is filled with important reminders that our best is usually more than adequate and we all need to stop being our own worst enemies. Oprah reminds us of the importance of giving and accepting grace and of embracing an attitude of gratitude.

I live in the space of thankfulness — and for that, I have been rewarded a million times over. I started out giving thanks for small things, and the more thankful I became, the more my bounty increased. That’s because — for sure — what you focus on expands. When you focus on the goodness in life, you create more of it.

Being grateful all the time isn’t easy. But it’s when you least feel thankful that you are most in need of what gratitude can give you: perspective. Gratitude can transform any situation. It alters your vibration, moving you from negative energy to positive. It’s the quickest, easiest most powerful way to effect change in your life — this I know for sure.
