Everyone is Talking about Gratitude
Everyone is talking about the new attitude of gratitude and this is very cool.
For if you practice gratitude, the universe will pour down its multitude of blessings and everything is in harmony. Adding a quick “Thanks, Love” while flying out the kitchen door for a meeting, seems easy to come by when things are going well, and life is delivering all of your dreams in big bright boxes wrapped with bows and flows of red and golden ribbons.
When your health is well, and you manage to find avocados that are ripe for that big green salad in winter, then it is easy to practice the attitude of gratitude. As when you are able to whistle a happy tune while hanging the wash and there is no minus below rain falling while walking the dog, then gratitude is a breeze.

In my office, my patients always come in and walk toward the chair they’re going to sit in, and then they turn around to face me. On the wall, just behind their chair, in full view as they’re entering, is a large, colorful painting that practically screams, “Notice me!” But almost no-one sees it.

The 10 Most Counter-Productive Personality Traits
By Marcia Sirota, MD
We’re living in dangerous times, and while we might think that the dangers we face come solely in the form of nuclear proliferation, rampant war-mongering, easy access to assault weapons, ongoing climate change and global financial collapse, we’d be wrong.
While the above are certainly dangerous, they’re mostly just symptoms of the more subtle yet pervasive dangers we’re facing. These ten lesser-known but very real dangers are psychological in nature, and we need to become aware of them, ASAP.
