One Year Wiser: A Gratitude Journal

Mike Medaglia

ISBN-13: 978-1910593219

As the calendar year comes to a close and a new witches year begins, you may find yourself thinking about appropriate gifts for friends and loved ones. Some people are easy to please, but some people seem to already “have everything” or at least have no need for more possessions to weigh them down. What to do with those people? Well, what better than a gratitude journal?

One Year Wiser is a journal interspersed with reflections by the author on finding balance and gratitude of each moment of each day. Quotes from Kahlil Gibran to Maya Angelou and the Dalai Lama are arranged in the margins and in the occasional whimsical image, which are also designed to be colored in. It has 365 entry spaces (240 pages from cover to cover), but no set dates, so you can pick it up at any time or remain guilt-free for missing a week.

With a silk white placeholder, I think One Year Wiser is a neat little journal and has a good production value. It would probably make a good gift for those with a penchant for coloring and those wanting a reminder or a practice to be present and thankful for each day.

The gratitude journal is part of a series including: One Year Wiser the Coloring Book and One Year Wiser: 365 Illustrated Meditations, so for the coloring enthusiast, the coloring book might be a better idea.
