Tiny Larry James Pic A Personal Message from Larry James:

"Gratitude unlocks the fulness of life. It turns what we have into enough, and more. It turns denial into acceptance, chaos to order, confusion to clarity. Gratitude makes sense of the past, brings peace for today, and creates a vision for tomorrow." - Melody Beattie, author, "Codependent No More"

We set aside November as a special time to be grateful and to be thankful for all our blessings! I'm thinking that it might be a great idea to pause for a few seconds every day to think about something for which we are grateful. Gratitude inspires kindness and connection.

I am most grateful for the power of choice. Every day we make thousands of choices about our thoughts, our feelings and our actions. Each choice brings with it it's own consequences. Some are good and some not so good. I am grateful for the wisdom to make the right choices.

No matter what happens today, choose gratitude. If everything goes your way, choose gratitude. If everything looks as though it is falling apart, choose gratitude. Gratitude is the most powerful choice that you can make. Gratitude changes us so that we more deeply realize the abundance that is available to us.

Albert Schweitzer called gratitude "The secret to life." He said, "The greatest thing is to give thanks for everything. He who has learned this knows what it means to live. He has penetrated the whole master of life: giving thanks for everything."

Wouldn't this be a better world and wouldn't our relationships all be better if we could train our minds to be grateful for our blessings instead of focusing on our disappointments?

Resolve to make gratitude a daily habit. Gratitude is a muscle that needs to be exercised everyday, so give yourself a personal workout challenge. Experts say that it takes at least 21 days to form a new habit. Let's all form the habit of gratitude by going 21 days without criticizing, condemning or complaining. It may be tough, and you CAN do it if you truly put your mind to it.

This Thanksgiving, may you celebrate in your own personal way and create a holiday you can be grateful for in the years to come. May you be grateful for all the ups and downs that shape who you are and who you are becoming.

It is my hope that you will start a tradition of meaningful celebration, whether it is an intimate dinner for two, a lively and spirited gathering of the whole family, a day of celebrating yourself, or a time to serve others.

Right now, think of something or someone you are grateful for. Take a moment to recognize what you can appreciate, speaking your gratitude out loud, letting the people you care about know how you feel. Send them an e-mail or better yet, give them a call.

My friend, Wes Hopper, publishes a complimentary "Gratitude Newsletter" each month. Check it out at: http://www.DailyGratitude.com.

LoveNote for Lovers...   Commitment is a deep trust, a devotion discovered in the choice to be together. Commitment needs no agreements because it is based on desire, not obligation. A forever love relationship requires devotion, loyalty and a mature ability to commit.

LoveNote for Lovers...   When you are in a relationship with someone and both of you are angry, chaos abounds. Two broken people can't fix each other! They can only work on the problem. "What is the problem," you ask? The answer is looking back at you in the mirror. Recovery comes from ceasing to be one of the problems.

LoveNote for Lovers...   Feelings are always very real for the one who feels them. When your lover expresses feelings. . . validate them. Let them know that it is okay to feel that way, even when you disagree. When you invalidate your love partner's feelings, generally disagreement follows. Never argue with anyone's feelings. It's an argument you can never win.

LoveNote for Lovers...   Trust commands that you live in the present, trusting one moment at a time. To fully trust takes time and mature, committed love.

Featured Relationship Article

Read A Prayer of Thanksgiving Be thankful for your relationships. All of them. PrayerThanksgivingSeems to me that there may be only two prayers worthy of praying. One prayer is to know God better. The other prayer is a prayer of thanksgiving. Pray a prayer of self-discovery and one of gratitude, and know God is listening.

Featured Relationship "Books-of-the-Month"

Books make grrreat gifts for someone you love!

Gratitude - Oliver Sacks - When you look in the mirror, who is truly hiding beneath that face? In this book Dr. Phil challenges you to find your "authentic self," thinking beyond the fears and excuses that have masked the person you've always wanted to be.

Larry's Endorsement: A quote by Oliver Sacks - "My predominant feeling is one of gratitude. I have loved and been loved. I have been given much and I have given something in return. Above all, I have been a sentient being, a thinking animal, on this beautiful planet, and that in itself has been an enormous privilege and adventure." - Oliver Sacks

Guy Finley's "Key Lessons" - The true path to Greatness is found in our willingness to walk toward, and then through, whatever may be seen in that moment as being greater than ourselves.

Sample: The seeming advantage to reliving scenes from our life is that since these mental movies are really just reruns whose outcome is already known, there is little to fear in them. But the real downside to this unconscious level of life needs to be seen to be transcended: In exchange for this false sense of comfort we derive from our dreams, we live as unwitting captives in the darkened theatre of thought, and we are kept from the life-giving Light of the Present Moment.

Relationship Humor

Daughter's text to dad:

Daddy, I am coming home to get married soon, so get out your cheque book. LOL I'm in love with a boy who is far away from me. As you know, I am in Australia, and he lives in Scotland. We met on a dating website, became friends on Facebook, Had long chats on Whatsapp, he proposed to me on Skype, and now we've had two months of relationship through Viber. My beloved and favorite Dad, I need your blessing, good wishes, and a really big wedding." Lots of love and thanks, Your favorite daughter, Lilly

Dad's reply:

My Dear Lilly, Like Wow! Really? Cool! Whatever... I suggest you two get married on Twitter, have fun on Tango, buy your kids on Amazon, and pay for it all through Paypal. And when you get fed up with this new husband, sell him on eBay. Loving, Dad
