Gratitude & Inspiration – Continuously updated page

thankful fortune

I created this page so that I have a place that I can go to every morning when I wake up and choose either to watch one of my favorite videos or read my favorite quotes that inspire me or help to put my mind in a state of gratitude.  I want to share that gift with you.

I will be updating this page regularly with new videos and new quotes that inspire me.  I hope you enjoy, and if you do, please start the discussion in the comments section below!  I wish you health, happiness, and peace:

  • This is one of my favorite guided meditations.  It’s about 18 minutes long, the voice is so soothing, the waves in the background so relaxing.  Try it!:

  • An amazing TED talk and short video by Louie Schwartzberg in 2011 that will bring you back to nature and fill your heart with gratitude.  I feel that the message is so important that I try to watch this every morning upon waking:

  • The science of happiness.  A little social experiment that shows the power of gratitude on your moods:

  • What Oprah knows about gratitude.  A short video that will help set you back on track quickly by bringing you back to what’s important in life:

  • An excellent guided 30 minute meditation with Thanissaro Bikkhu.  This guy just has such a soothing voice, and he is such an incredible teacher.  His words ooze of wisdom and just make you feel downright great!

  • A short video about an amazing guy, Nick Vujicic, who was born with no arms and no legs.  Watch how this guy approaches life!  and break out the kleenex:
