The original Bachelorette Trista Sutter has been promoting her new book Happily Ever After: The Life Changing Power of a Grateful Heart. Sutter was the star of the first season of The Bachelorette, and married Ryan Sutter in 2003.
Sutter says she hopes that her book will encourage positive thinking and inspire others to live their lives in a positive manner.
"Every day on social media I post my favorite part of the day (#favpartofday) as a way to focus on the positive and think about the good things, especially if it was a not so great part of the day," she said. "I just want to be able to put something out into the universe that inspires people."
"Do something that consciously you are choosing to be grateful for like doing your favorite part of the day," she said. "I got my kids gratitude journals and have them each write in them or draw a picture."

In her book, Sutter talks about her ten-year romance to her hubby, and the two children that they now have together. Although most of the book revolves around her family, Sutter says the bigger picture of the book is focusing on gratitude and how it has helped her find happiness in her life.
"I feel incredibly blessed for so many reasons. Some may think that I have lived a fairy tale, and I’d agree with them in regard to a couple magical moments of my life. My book, though, isn’t just about finding my “Happily Ever After.” Yes, I write about meeting and marrying the wonderful man I call my husband, but that story is part of a bigger picture ... part of the picture of gratitude that has been such a powerful force in finding my life’s happiness," she wrote
