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.

    I enjoyed both this week’s shows. I’m grateful for my family’s health & mine, I have a roof on top of my head, food to eat, friends whom I love & a job so I can support my kids. Thank God, couldn’t ask for more. I’m happy I’m alive. I’m not wealthy, but I look to people who are less fortunate & say a million thank you.
    Thank you Lisa & Michelle.

    Spring is here, after a cold Canberra winter in the Southern Hemisphere. This week I’ve been grateful to throw off my thick winter coat and admire the beautiful trees covered in blossom.

    What are you grateful for this week?
