  • I have kept a gratitude journal for a number of years now, writing many things for which I am grateful each morning. I write whether I feel grateful or not. Sometimes it helps me feel more grateful, but not always. I have been living in extreme chronic pain for the past 7 years and it makes it extremely hard to feel grateful. This is a huge challenge for me, because I have generally been a very grateful person regardless of what is occurring in my life.

    I do this practice quite frequently, usually unconsciously. I will try to be more conscious of doing this practice not only when I wake up, but before I go to sleep. It leaves a sense of peace.

    I am thankful for every aspect of my life, my faithful dog, my special companion, my family, my friends, and the ability to walk and have the full use of all my senses, and that I have a roof over my head, food to eat, and the ability to work and have productive work.

    I am so grateful to Katie for introducing me to you Mary ? you’re amazing

  • My oldest brother just passed away very suddenly and I have really been struggling, particularly in the mornings. Difficult to face a new day with such sorrow and emptiness. I am going to make this my new practice; I’m sure this will help to get out of bed in the morning. Thank you!

  • That Jesus is my savior.

  • No doubt gratitude makes the mind and heart peaceful. We all crave for peace. Peace is health. Love you peace lovers. I am Ali from Pakistan.

  • Hi, many years ago , my teacher told us to write each day five things we are grateful for. Through the years, I upped it up by many numbers, and a few years ago, my thinking of gratitude went to a different level. As you say in your video there is so much to be grateful for: the air, sun, moon, planet, water, our job. You who post these wonderful talks- thank you.

    Blessings to you.

  • Carlene Morrison

    I am grateful that there are individuals who are sharing information in videos, interviews, meditations. When I watch and listen, my food choices are more healthy and I have a much better attitude about my life.

  • Lorna Gordon-Elliott

    Hi Mary,

    Very inspiring video – thank you.

    I’m grateful for many things but the one thing that came to mind when you asked, is the fact that I could sit around the computer without my glasses and read everything clearly. I did cataract surgery 6 weeks ago and I’m amazed at the clarity of vision I now enjoy. I’m truly grateful for the results of the surgery and that I could have afforded the procedure.

    I’m going to try to get into a state of gratitude before my feet hit the ground, starting tomorrow.

    Kind regards.

It has deeply affected me both physically and mentally.all they do is throw more pills at me.i am hoping this may help as i have got to the stage of wanting to give up.not wanting to wake up, not that i sleep due to pain. Am over the pain.depressed about the inabilityto do things i used to. Hope your meditations help me.thank you for sending me your email.hope its the first step to the rest of my life.
    Yours sincerely

    I’m thankful for the environment I’m in now that I’m divorced. I don’t like that my 33 years of marriage came to divorce but I am thankful for the growing that’s taking place and the increase in my self-esteem. It hasn’t been easy but God put many blessings into my life to make this so. I’m thankful for the opportunity to invest in myself with newly found freedom, energy and motivation.

    I am so grateful for my husband. There was a time when I didn’t think I’d ever meet the man for me and have the home I’ve always dreamed of. Relationships are definitely not all roses & sunshine, there are a lot of thorns & storms. I am so grateful to have him in my life!
