There are so many things that can throw you off balance and make you feel bad, angry, resentful, bitter, disappointed or sad. For many years I would focus on what was wrong in my life rather than appreciate what was right. I was living in a vortex of negativity which gave me more stuff that wasn’t working in my life. Are you living in this vortex? Until I finally woke up and realized that my life was a train wreck!
When I began to switch it around and began focusing on what I appreciated, my life start to appreciate in so many wonderful ways. It truly is amazing how this practice can change your outlook on life! Now, every morning I write down what I am grateful for and share my appreciation to whoever I met. The energy of love, appreciation, gratitude, kindness and compassion has completely transformed my life. I am calm,peaceful and patient most of the time.
Even when things don’t go the way you thought they should, you can feel appreciation. When you live with gratitude in your heart and treat others with respect and love, something magical happens. Your energy changes and attracts more good things. If you practice this for 30 days, you will see a major shift in your life. Then practice it for the rest of your life! I know how my life turned around and I know yours will too.

There is something magical that happens every time you take a pen to paper. A connection is made between your mind and body that can not take place the same way as when you are typing on a keyboard. You see, every letter on the keyboard is pressed the same, where as when you write long hand, every letter is unique. Pen to paper, connects you to the viseral experience. I knew this, however I never did write my blogs like this until now. I was listening to a sermon by a pastor from the Riverside Church in Manhattan this past Sunday when he spoke of this experience that happens when we take pen to paper. We get to explore a deeper level of meaning within ourselves when we write this way. We unite our whole being into the relationship with ourself, our spirit, and God. Some how it’s just not the same when we just type it out. So I’ve decided to write my blogs and stories long hand first, then type them out. Writing this now, I see how my thoughts flow so much smoother. Writing seems to move my hand effortlessly. So, I suggest for you to take pen to paper and explore the deep recesses of your mind and release what ever is stored there. There is a magical sensation of freedom that happens when you do. Start writing, pick up a pen, and begin discovering the most important person in your world, YOU!
