Gratitude and the Law of Attraction

Gratitude is the quality of being thankful and/or a feeling appreciate for someone or something.

Moving Forward

My progress toward being less miserable is gradual but steady.


Reading takes your mind out of thinking mode and puts it into receiving mode. It shifts your attention away from the present and puts it in another place and time. It’s entertaining, and it opens up space to let new thoughts enter.


It doesn’t have to be a gym work-out or power yoga. Just move. Moving gets your heart pumping and your blood flowing. A brisk 30-minute walk can do this. If you’re not up to quick, try a slower but longer walking time.

Eat Healthier

If nothing else, add a salad a day to a meal. Fresh, steamed vegetables are also easy and healthy. Both are quick.


Shut out the world for seven to eight hours a night. Let your body rest and recuperate.

Get Inspired

Whenever I need a reality check, I look for someone who inspires me.

Ordinary Miracles

Life is full of small extraordinary moments, even on a rainy Monday morning.
