010: The Mind-Blowing Power of Saying Thank You

Keep your face to the sunshine and you will not see the shadows

[Helen Keller]


Be grateful.

Say thank you.

We say it to our children all the time.

But are we practicing what we preach?

There is so much sunshine in our life, so much to be grateful for.

But we get so busy, we often don’t notice.

When things go wrong it’s easy to notice. The frustrations. The annoyances. The tiredness.

But finding things to be grateful for takes skill, and a change in mindset.

Helen Keller kept her face to the sunshine despite not being able to see or hear.

Can you do the same?

In this weeks episode of The Friday Café, Michelle Dawson and I talk about how you can keep your face in the sunshine by practicing gratitude.

    Lisa, we wanted to thank you for having us on your Podcast – it was truly an enjoyable experience. We so appreciated your insightful questions that enabled us to share more about how to heal after a difficult or traumatic birth. And thank you for caring so much about mums – it really shows in your podcasts, and we feel very grateful to have this opportunity to reach more women and share the message that birth trauma is real…AND that it is possible to heal. Much love, Melissa and Debby xx
