John Kralik's inspiring true story starts when he is at his lowest point - his second marriage has failed and he has moved into an uncomfortable, depressing little apartment. He sees his young daughter only for prescribed visits and does not enjoy good relationships with his older sons. His career as a lawyer has become mired in bitter feuds and unpaid bills. He feels he has failed to reach any of the goals he set himself.
On new year's day, he is struck by the idea that his life might be at least a bit tolerable if he could find a way be grateful for what he had. He needs a structure for his new plan so he decides to write one thank-you letter every day for a year.
The process of writing the notes forces John to reassess his life. One by one, day after day, on plain note cards and with unadorned sincerity, he thanks close loved ones for gifts or kindnesses, he thanks clients who do
pay on time, college friends and current foes, even store clerks and a handyman - each with a brief handwritten note.
In time, he finds that not only has his perspective changed, being grateful has actually brought good things into his life.
365 Thank Yous is a rare memoir, its touching message delivered in the plainspoken storytelling of an ordinary man. Kralik sets a believable, doable example of how to live a good life. To read 365 Thank Yous is to be changed.
