Gratitude Week was inspired by my scary July 4 collision into glass.

After my frightening experience, I'm just glad to be alive these days.

In fact, I try to remind myself often that I'm so very fortunate in that I'm suffering only from most-concussive syndrome (post concussion syndrome).

Admittedly, at times, it's a challenge to remind myself how grateful I am, especially when I'm struck by horrific headaches, profound dizziness and some cognitive confusion.

The fact remains: It could have been so, so, so much worse. I could have lost my life or drastically maimed my face.

Since I'm so grateful to be alive, I became inspired to help you get into an attitude of gratitude, too.

So, please join us for Gratitude Week on Gab with the Gurus. All shows air live at 2 pm Eastern (on Blog Talk Radio), but you also can listen later, at your convenience, to archived shows.
