As we move into this season of gratitude, I want to share a list of books for which I am eternally grateful.
#1 The Prophet by Kahlil Gibran
This collection of poetic essays was given to me when I was 16-years old, and I am so glad for it. These poems and the philosophies expressed in them shaped me as a person, and that is no exaggeration.
Since receiving my first copy, I have purchased over 100 copies and have given them as gifts, left them in public places (pre-COVID), and handed the immediately to the cashier upon purchasing.

#2 Jonathan Livingston Seagull by Richard Bach
Someone I dated years ago gave me this book as a way of kind of explaining who they were. What a wonderful gift to be given. This book is about people who live life to the fullest - people who dare to actually live and not just let the time pass.

#3 The Miracle of Mindfulness by Thich Nhat Hanh
This is another book that I've purchased over and over again for friends, strangers, students and teachers. This is a simple, down-to-earth, practical guide for those seeking to be more mindful in their lives. I read it regularly and continually find benefit.
