Happy World Gratitude Day

Tuesday, September 20th, 2011

What are you grateful for? It’s easy to dwell on the negative things in life. Our days get so hectic that most of us don’t have time to stop and think about all the little moments that make us smile. That’s why we’re celebrating World Gratitude Day.

Origin

In 1965 a group of dignitaries from several nations enjoyed Thanksgiving dinner together in Hawaii. They discussed the concept of creating one day each year to encourage people to focus on things that make them happy. All the attendees agreed to take this idea back to their home countries. From then on, September 21 was recognized as World Gratitude Day.

The founders of this happy holiday suggest spending it with family and friends, and meditating on things that bring you joy. Whether you share these thoughts with others or keep them private doesn’t matter. The point is to concentrate on the positive side of life and express your gratitude.

Ready To Kiss And Make Up?

Friday, August 19th, 2011

Look back on your life. How many relationships have been hurt or destroyed by misunderstandings and arguments? For most of us, even one is too many.

We all have issues with other people from time to time. It’s human nature. But sometimes even minor disagreements are allowed to fester for years. They can ruin great relationships and tear loved ones apart. If we really look inside ourselves and ask which is more important – being “right” or saving the relationship – then we’ll probably want to fix things fast.

August 25 is the perfect opportunity.

You can’t turn away from the screen. The images are disturbing. Shocking. But you can’t look away.

The events are happening now, but somehow they don’t seem real. They feel like something from a war movie or disaster film. And they never seem to end.
