Join one of the world’s youngest authors, Muskan Virk, on Saturday afternoon, December 17th, as she will be signing copies of her brand-new book 365 Days of Gratitude at Aum Shanti Bookshop (226 E. 14th Street (between 2nd & 3rd Avenues New York, NY 10003) from 1-3PM PT. Prior to the signing, Muskan will be discussing the release of the book, in addition to answering your questions on love, compassion, and gratitude.
If you are navigating through a difficult time in your life and/or if you are moving through a time of transformation and change, let the energies of 365 Days of Gratitude remind you of who you are and what’s truly important, regardless of your age and the stage that you are at in your life. 365 Days of Gratitude provides people of all ages with hope, healing, positivity, and a sense of knowing and feeling the foundation of what joy and happiness are based off of: gratitude.
Muskan came into this world as a miracle after her parents’ 16 years of marriage. At the young age of six, Muskan learned about the injustice that Malala Yousafzai had gone through, and was devastated. She was propelled to take action and wanted to make a difference. She started by raising funds to donate to the Malala Fund and other local charities. However, despite the difference she was already making, Muskan didn’t want to stop there. She asked her mother incessantly about why there was so much gender inequality in such modern times.
In order to shift her thoughts on this subject to a more positive state, her mother gave her a journal and encouraged her to write one thing every day that she was grateful for. She wanted Muskan to focus on all the positive things in her life. As time passed, her mother forgot about the journal, until Muskan came to her later with a journal filled with all of the things she was grateful for and how she had transformed her negative thoughts about gender inequality into positive thoughts on how she can use her influence to make an impact. They both were inspired to share this with the world, so chose 365 to create this beautiful book.
It wasn’t enough for Muskan to simply learn about these issues, she wanted to make a difference, and declared that “This world needs to be changed, and I’m the one that could change it!” Muskan proceeded to fundraise $1200 through her school, who donated it to the Malala Fund.
Along with the inspiring stories of gratitude from best-selling authors Serena Dyer (the daughter of New York Times best-selling author and beloved spiritual teacher Dr. Wayne Dyer) and Jason Garner (the former CEO of Live Nation), along with Rick Hansen (Canadian Paralympian, activist, and philanthropist), this book is filled with simple gratitudes of everyday life, which inspire and uplift, and remind all of the beauty that surrounds us.
Muskan believes that if you have everything in life, then take the time to look and see how you can support others and be a part of positive change in the world. Muskan is inspired by the knowing that her words will make a difference in people’s lives and would like to make a difference globally with her organization called Helping Hands, whose mission is to help homelessness in every country. Partial proceeds of this very book will be donated to Helping Hands as a continued effort in ensuring you are also a part of making a difference.
365 Days of Gratitude is also available via paperback and Kindle on Amazon.com.
