I am Grateful to Wake Up & Know I have another chance to be Joyful!

According to Psychology Today. . . "Gratitude improves psychological health. Gratitude reduces a multitude of toxic emotions, from envy and resentment to frustration and regret. Robert Emmons, a leading gratitude researcher, has conducted multiple studies on the link between gratitude and well-being. His research confirms that gratitude effectively increases happiness and reduces depression".

Yessss. . .  it's true that Gratefulness increases happiness. I thought I was living a Grateful life for many years and then 2019 happened. I got up one Tuesday in September and God's Blessings was magnified when I looked into the mirror - hair out of place, wrinkles more visible, and the residuals of a good night's sleep evident. . . and I was so very THANKFUL. I stayed home all day just to marvel at my new found Joy.  I was so happy to be alive and continued to repeat. . ."Thanks be to God". Since that eventful day, I Thank God for every new day.  Love ME, Myself & I more than ever and promise to enjoy to the max.
  • “Everyone who is alive can find something to be grateful for if they look for it. If you are among the few that can’t find anything, start with the fact that you are ALIVE and continue from there. Counting ones blessings is a barometer of mental health.” ~  Gudjon BergmannThe Seven Human Needs.

We are Humans and tested daily to find the Joy in our Life and sometimes we fail. But, we are allowed to Fail as long as we pick ourselves up and seek Joy in tomorrow. This Thanksgiving Day when millions of women set the table for family members to enter into a day of Gratefulness, . . we should inspire them all, to be forever Grateful for this Life no matter how difficult it appears to be.  This Life is all we know and to wake up above ground is truly a Blessing.

"Gratefulness is a Practice just like Happiness is a choice" ~ Russell Simmons

Let the Gratitude and happiness of the Thanksgiving celebrations take us into the Season of Giving.  Hanukkah, Christmas or whatever you call it, is the last season of the year, and we have to find our JOY before 2020 comes knocking.


“To multiply your Joy, count your blessings. ~ J. B. Priestley
