WE DID IT!

WE DID IT!

We try and be grateful every day. Some days we have to really scrounge around in the corners of our lives and on others you can’t stop grinning from the gratitude. Paulie and I feel that way this week as Gratitude and Trust made it onto The New York Times bestseller list. It is thanks to many of you who have supported us and the book since we started and those who have joined in along the way. I think… Read More

FINDING CONTENTMENT ON A RAINY DAY

FINDING CONTENTMENT ON A RAINY DAY

Be content with what you have; rejoice in the way things are. When you realize there is nothing lacking, the whole world belongs to you.” ― Lao Tzu   I was given an amazing gift recently when I headed out to try a new yoga class. It was one of those cold and grey rainy New York days and I almost bailed a few times on the eight block walk as my mind kept telling me I had more important… Read More

GETTING THROGH THE HOLIDAYS WITH GRATITUDE AND YOUR SANITY

GETTING THROGH THE HOLIDAYS WITH GRATITUDE AND YOUR SANITY

  Here at G and T we try and be grateful every day. We try and give back. We like to think of it like everyday is Thanksgiving here. But today is the real Thanksgiving. The day when families all across the country somehow through bad weather, delayed flights, crowded highways and screaming children make their way to relatives to ostensibly give thanks and not have any fist fights or screaming matches while carb loading and often drinking too much.… Read More

GRATITUDE AND BEYOND

GRATITUDE AND BEYOND

Appreciating what shows up in your life changes your personal vibration. Gratitude elevates your life to a higher frequency. ~ OPRAH   Goodness. Gratitude. Grateful. Glad. Generous. Pick your positive G- word – it does not begin to describe the feelings we I have today. Back track. Rewind the tape, for all our new members –  Thanks to the great Oprah Winfrey and our appearance on Super Soul Sunday yesterday we have many new followers on this site this morning. To all… Read More

Gratitude, Trust

  TRUST – THE FIREWALL TO FEAR

   TRUST – THE FIREWALL TO FEAR

  It’s very interesting on the road as people ask you a lot of questions. One of the things we tend to hear repeatedly is, “I can do the gratitude part, but the trust, that is harder.” This makes sense. When we are grateful we tend to be grateful for things that are tangible: from a sunny day to a good medical report, to the lost possession found, a dogs unconditional affection, a job to go to, a family to… Read More

LESSONS IN GRATITUDE FROM THE CAN-LADY

LESSONS IN GRATITUDE FROM THE CAN-LADY

  What began as a typical Thursday became a life-changing moment that nearly brought me to my knees. I was up early, preparing our daughter’s breakfast before school, racing to run the dog out, rushing to get ready for work as a health coach and writer in NYC and had a brief, but not uncommon, squabble about money with my husband. The financial frustration the American middle-class feels is alive and kicking in our home. Our oldest is getting married,… Read More

Gratitude

You’re not obligated to win. You’re obligated to keep trying. To the best you can do everyday.

You’re not obligated to win. You’re obligated to keep trying. To the best you can do everyday.

WINNER OF THE DAILY GRATITUDE CONTEST   It is virtually impossible to judge gratitude. Gratitude is gratitude.   What works for one might not work for the other. How does one place a value not that. But this was a contest – So – I think it has to be a tie between Lynda Thompson who took cold showers and learned about deprivation as a young girl and is grateful on a daily basis for her health.  Hard to argue with… Read More

GRATIUDE – DON’T FORGET THE LITTLE THINGS

GRATIUDE – DON’T FORGET THE LITTLE THINGS

  When it comes to gratitude the big things can come more easily. Like mammogram day, OK, I know I lost some of the guys and younger folk on that one. But every woman knows the gratitude when you get that “Everything is OK” message. It’s easy to be grateful when things are going our way. I was thinking about that a lot last week; how we roll along being grateful while life is moving in the way we want… Read More
