What Are You Grateful For?

What Are You Grateful For?


One of the best daily workouts I have EVER done was my gratitude journal.  Every single day, I would write down 15 things I was grateful for.

Did you know there are actually scientific articles about the benefits of being grateful?

Here's one of these articles:  CLICK HERE 

It is such a small task, that barely takes any time.  But, the rewards are GINORMOUS.

Gratitude changes the way you look at life.
Gratitude opens the door to blessings.
Gratitude blesses the people around you.
Gratitude helps your physical and mental health.

Gratitude is one of the simplest, yet most beneficial tasks you will ever experience.

I am grateful for so many things, including readers like you, that enjoy my blog posts.

Here's a daily exercise for you.  Every morning, before you get out of bed, take some deep breaths and say out loud 10 things you are grateful for.

There is no "right" or "wrong" way to do it, just do it your way.  But, do it.  You won't regret it, I promise.


Thank YOU for being here.  You are on my gratitude list, every day.

Make it a great day; you deserve it!

Happy St Patrick's Day

Happy St Patrick's Day!!


I confess, I didn't wear a speck of green this year.  And, I'm not having corned beef and cabbage tonight.  I'm not having green beer, green eggs or anything else green at all.

I've been so focused on my loved ones, my business and my work lately, that I didn't even think about being festive.

Booooooo...

I know, I know.  But, in all reality, I don't need an "excuse" or a holiday to celebrate my heritage.  Yes, I'm part Irish.  And English.  And...not sure what else, to be honest.  LOL

EVERY day is a day to celebrate life.  To live on purpose and with intention,  To set goals and strive to achieve them.

EVERY day is a day to be kissed.

EVERY day is a day to be grateful.

EVERY day is a day to remember where your family came from.

EVERY day is a day to celebrate all the blessings you have.

EVERY day is a day to make some green, too.  :)

I wish you all abundance and blessings on this festive day.

AND...


May you always have work for your hands to do. 
May your pockets hold always a coin or two. 
May the sun shine bright on your windowpane. 
May the rainbow be certain to follow each rain. 
May the hand of a friend always be near you. 
And may God fill your heart with gladness to cheer you.

Make it a great day, you deserve it!

Happy Thanksgiving

Hello Friends and Happy Thanksgiving!




As I write this, I realize it has been 7 months since I've done any writing here.


I want to say that I am thankful for you.  Grateful that you stop by and read my posts and hope that I've been able to make you smile.

I am thankful for my beautiful children, my best friend and those that have stuck by me while I have fought through many challenges this year.

I'm also grateful to the people that have helped me figure out the paths that were not right for me.  The investments that were harmful, the businesses that were counter-productive and the friendships that were not healthy.

It's important to see not only the good things, but the not-so-good things; both influence who you become and what you do with your life.


On this day, I share what I am thankful for, but make no mistake...EVERY day I am grateful.
