Gratitude Week — which came about because of my scary accident, where I smashed head first into glass (as you can learn from the following press
release) — continued today on my Gab with the Gurus Radio Show with yet another amazing program.
For Day 4 of Gratitude Week, five articulate, empowering guests shared their insights on the amazing connection between gratitude and becoming optimistic, reducing stress and becoming more spiritual.
Before I tell you about Day 4's guests, you have to learn about this remarkable coincidence.
Much to my delight, as I peeled off today's affirmation on my calendar from internationally acclaimed metaphysical author, speaker and inspirational teacher Louise Hay, I found that it focuses on gratitude!
What are the odds of such a thing occurring? Many people say that there are no coincidences. Whatever the case, on Day 4 of Gratitude Week on Gab with the Gurus — triggered by my painful, but life-affirming accident — my Louise Hay calendar spoke to us about the power of gratitude!
Anyhow, these were Day 4's wonderful guests.

Please note, as you no doubt can guess, that I'm very much a fan of Hay House, the international leader in self-help and transformational publishing. As you may have read here, I recently announced that this wonderful company will be publishing my next book, the follow up to Sugar Shock! Stay tuned for your last chance to help name my next book.
