Get Courageous

Celebrating gratitude is good for the heart
Gratitude opens your heart space


Be grateful for all your experiences as you were growing up, whether in the country or the city.

Each day is a wonderful journey of discovery for a child, a day of adventure, discovering what is in the wide world. Sure there may have been chores, however there was time to explore the world and all it offered, shaping the life you live now.

Be grateful for parents, family, friends, teachers and mentors, all of whom influence or shape who you are today.

It is both humbling and inspiring to experience your humanness with all its imperfections and magnificence.

Be grateful for your life, what has been, is now and is to come – with all its possibilities.


Celebrate, because gratitude when expressed out loud and often is a very powerful force.
It opens up the ‘heart’ space, broadens your thinking and your self-awareness.
Get courageous and practice gratitude daily so that you do and have all that you are meant to be. Remember to say thank you, often. You are truly blessed.

  1. Cheers for the short article. Figure out how to stop and also defeat panic assaults.

    1. Hi Ron or Ophelia,
      I have found interrupting the strategy that starts the anxiety thing going ( trigger) is a very useful thing to do and where you notice it first i.e what you see ,hear or feel. Then you are able to replace it with a more positive experience that you had had in your life and thereby toned down or lesson the influence of that old feeling. Working with a certified Life Coach particularly one trained in NLP is also a very useful approach. Let me know how that goes for you, regards Colin. Keep up the golf or exercise will help too I suggest.
