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.

Book Review :
"Love Each Day" is a beautifully written book that contains 40 inspiring essays about people from different walks of life. The main point of the book is to "Live each day so you would want to live it again." Each story focuses on an individual's experience in which they realized that they were having one of those days that they would want to live again. The topics cover a variety of situations which run from having a relaxing day, to qualifying for the Olympics, to setting foot on the moon. Each one is valuable in itself.
I appreciated that each person allowed the author to interview them for this book. Their stories should be told so that we can be inspired to look at our lives and create our own stories. Some of my most incredible life-altering moments have come from mundane experiences. I found myself tapping into a source that allowed me to see things on a higher level. "Love Each Day" reminded me of many of these experiences that I have had. Several have happened while at work. Realizing that I have my own special moments reminded me that I need to appreciate my career more and the incredible people that come into my life.
By reading this book, I see that there is less emphasis on the importance of money and material things and importance placed on engaging in activities that are meaningful and being of service to others. This is where we will find true meaning in our lives. I highly recommend "Love Each Day" by Gail Bernice Holland to graduates who are ready to launch themselves out into the world. By giving them this message early, they will find themselves seeking out much more meaningful careers.
