Ep 10: The Truth About Gratitude


You’ve probably been hearing a lot about gratitude. ‘Tis the season. But in this week’s episode, I am sharing why gratitude is a key transformational practice for every day of the year. A mindset of gratitude is more than just a trendy thing to try; this mindset actually changes the wiring in our brain to counteract all the years of focusing on what is going wrong around us.

“Gratitude makes sense of our past, brings peace for today, and creates a vision for tomorrow.” ~Melody Beattie
