And yes, I'll add my humble two cents to the collective coin pile regarding gratitude. There are all the things for which we can be grateful. Myself, I have many: My good health; an abundant and loving family; a loving, compassionate, and sexy girlfriend (cue whistle!); all my friends, old and new; the success I've had so far in my music career.
But I'd also like to mention the "attitude of Gratitude" talked about by many inspirational speakers. It's the effect of gratitude: How being grateful helps us to be happier, and ultimately brings us more in life, because it keeps us "in the flow," open to the abundance of the universe.
It's not easy to keep the attitude. We naturally bring attention to what's wrong, but then we often get stuck in it. I hope you'll join me in constantly trying to make a habit of gratitude. I know it's corny, but I try to follow the advice in the song "Count Your Blessings" from the old movie "Holiday Inn" (one of my Grandma Crowley's favorites):
"When I'm worried and I can't sleep, I count my blessings instead of sheep, and I fall asleep counting my blessings! When my bankroll is gettin' small, I think of when I had none at all, and I fall asleep counting my blessings!"
