“Gratitude unlocks the fullness of life.  It turns what we have into enough, and more.  It turns denial into acceptance, chaos to order, confusion to clarity.  It can turn a meal into a feast, a house into a home, a stranger into a friend.  Gratitude makes sense of our past, brings peace for today, and creates a vision for tomorrow.”  -Melody Beattie

Gratitude is powerful.  If you develop the ability to be truly grateful each day, your life will change for the better.  Make gratitude a habit.

Lori Wiser recommends Rhonda Byrne’s book, The Magic, to help you develop a life of gratitude.  In her book, she takes you through 28 days of practicing gratitude.  This is her “magic formula:”

1. Deliberately think and say the magic words thank you.

2. The more you deliberately think and say the magic words, thank you, the more gratitude you feel.

3. The more gratitude you deliberately think and feel, the more abundance you receive.


 “Gratitude is not only the greatest of virtues, but the parent of all the others.” -Cicero
