Getting Grateful

What are you most grateful for?

by Jonathan Hilton  

gratitude 111It is a difficult task indeed to start to think about what you are most grateful for. Many people will say money. Some will say love. Some will say family. Some will say something else entirely.

I am thankful for all these things, but to me there is no doubt that showing your gratitude is the most important thing to do. The feeling of gratitude is important.  So for me I guess the act of feeling grateful is the thing I am most grateful for today.  Here is why.

Things To Think About On This Sad Day

Things To Remember

Today is December 15, 2012 and the nation and the world has been shocked, saddened and dismayed by the actions of one unstable individual in Connecticut yesterday.  The act was unbelievable to the majority of people and it leaves everyone searching for answers, looking for meaning of things and trying to deal with a situation that makes absolutely no sense.  The melancholy is palpable as you move through the crowds and see the faces on what should be a festive day preparing for Christmas, family visits and good cheer.

I Do Not Like Mean People

Why Mean People Are MeanI don't like Mean People

One of the things I like the least in life are mean people.  Mean people exist and thrive on crapping on the attitude, accomplishments,  interests or well being of someone else, with the sole purpose of making themselves feel more powerful or to increase their own self-esteem.  In a word these people are toxic and need to be avoided at all costs. They can leave you feeling worn out, tired, depleted and negative about everything but most importantly about yourself. It seems that they spend all day thinking about how to be mean to people.
