The Importance of Gratitude
Gratitude is the fastest, cheapest, easiest, and healthiest mood changer on the planet. Gratitude will change your mood within minutes. I would say seconds, but I am not trying to oversell gratitude here, but, believe me, it works.
It is the simplest things ever. When I first started using gratitude as my first choice to “feel better now,” I had two things, my niece and the sky (granted I live in San Francisco, we have beautiful sky, when it is not foggy.) What I am trying to say is that you can start with something as simple as that, not the beautiful niece, but the sky, and you can build up from there.
There are so many ways to practice the art of gratitude. Find a practice that works for you and one you can incorporate effortlessly into your everyday life.
Gratitude is the simple act of counting your blessings. Sometimes things seem too hard to find what the blessings are but even if you start small, the act of gratitude multiplies itself. You can start with one thing, then you have two, then you have four. Before you know it, you are beaming around town radiating gratitude.
How to Start a Daily Meditation Practice

If you are anything like me, and can’t start a meditation practice to save your life, then, know that there is hope for you. Seriously, if I can do it, so can you. If meditation is a prelude to napping in your world, then there is hope for you.

Finding Mr. Right is possible, he is not the myth we were all led to think he was. Some ladies believe they will find the sasquatch (abominable snowman for those girlies that are less Scifi than most) before they come across Mr. Right.
Well, let us squash that myth right now. If the Universal Laws are as constant as the laws of physics then Mr. Right is right there waiting for you. He is somewhere in your Wish Vortex just waiting to you to get on his Frequency.

Look around you I am sure you can find someone who is rocking a Mr. Right on her arm right now. And what do I always say? “If one person can do it so can you, you just have to want it good enough.”
