Review # 5: Love Each Day: Live Each Day So You Would Want to Live it Again by Gail Bernice Holland

Description: (From book jacket)
"Are We Happy Yet?

      We are used to psychologists, psychiatrists, and other "experts" offering advice about how to be happy and how to live a fulfilling life. Even though the books by these experts can be helpful, sometimes the best way to learn about life is from true stories. Although Love Each Day doesn't specifically tell people how to live a wonderful life, the authentic true stories nevertheless offer timeless lessons about enjoying life. The tapestry of true stories in our lives will always be invaluable. From these stories we not only learn how people from different walks of life live, but also what is important to these individuals. Ultimately, this book inspires readers to spend time treasuring what really matters."
     Being a recent college graduate, I liked the approach Love Each Day took to defining a meaningful life, and how each day, or better yet, each action can open new doors and create new opportunities. I agree that life is meant to be lived and experienced, not just muddled through, and these short stories of personal experiences reaffirmed it for me. I only wish there had been a more diverse set of stories considering the collection's short length. In the end attitude is one of the keys to having a fulfilled and meaningful (to the individual) life. Overall a good read; and recommended. 

Rating: Bounty's Out (3/5)
