Psychologist Wm James said, We can alter our lives by altering our attitudes.
Why not start with gratitude? Dr. Hans Selye said it’s the most healing of all emotions.

At its core, gratitude is being grateful that we have something and maybe also being grateful that we don’t have some other things--like thanking God for answering our prayer yes or maybe thanking Him for saying no because not everything we want is for our best good.

We may not feel gratitude to God because we’ve lived life ok without Him, but on the other hand, where did you get those things most valuable to you? Our bodies, our brain, our ability to think and do came as a gift at birth. God makes a million flowers, hoping we find one and thank Him. Gratitude is the essence--the essential part of religion.

“In everything, give thanks, for this is the will of God” 1Thess 5:21. It’s because in all things, God is working for good for those who are called to His purpose, Romans 8:28.

People have cured their depression by thinking of something every day to be thankful for. Gratitude is like a muscle--it gets stronger with practice. Expression deepens impression!

In the end, Health, Happiness & Destiny are huge blessings available to all, as explained in my favorite book that has changed the lives of millions for the best. It can be read online or downloaded here
May God bless and guide you--Happy Thanksgiving Every Day…
