With JD Founder, Alyssa-- You've probably heard the saying, "It is not happy people who are grateful, it is grateful people who are happy," and maybe you have pondered it or maybe it was just a passing thought, but for me, this is one of those quotes that just rings so much truth and wisdom, and yet in the USA, I can't help but feel like we've got Thanksgiving wrong in several ways, which I explain in today's episode.
THIS WEEK'S GIRL TALK:
-Gratitude breeds happiness
-Thanksgiving as a metaphor for American culture
-How gratitude helped me heal
-A 7 minute guided gratitude meditation
I also talk about gratitude as one of the modalities that helped me heal during the hardest point in my life. When I was so sick of being sad, I decided to be grateful instead. And then I found happiness. I'll share my unique gratitude practice, and at the end you'll get a 7 MINUTE GUIDED MEDITATION starting around 19:37 minutes in. thejournaldeck.com/episode32
