Building a spirit of gratitude from within

Building a spirit of gratitude from withinIntroduction
Has our society forgotten how to be appreciative? Many people are too busy running the rat race to say, "Thank you."

Working through self-destructive behaviors

Working through self-destructive behaviorsThe holidays can be a wonderful and cozy time of year. We reconnect with those long forgotten warm sweaters that have waited patiently for us in the back of our closets. Everything we eat and drink is pumpkin flavored.

Be the change you wish to see!

Be the change you wish to see!When I change the world changes with me! This is my personal affirmation. All of us would like for things to change for the better. It is within this hope that you are able to deal with life's up's and down's. Some look for change to take place outside of them. They wish for others to be different. The truth is that real change takes place within us. In order to live life to its fullest, you must change what you see, say, and do. You have to become the change you wish to see.
