encouragementEncouragement is such a massive thing! It can make such a big difference in our life. Can you imagine how things would be if people spent half as much time encouraging others as they do in tearing them down? I know, right?? Wow, what a nice thought!

So good Sunday morning to you! If you would like to have more encouragement in your life, and encourage me along the way, then can you consider following my blog, or follow me on Twitter, you can “like” my page on Facebook, you can even get a little more encouragement by joining my private group on Facebook! I have so many ways to connect with others! My soul purpose is to encourage and help others to have their best life! I’ll be blessed (indeed) if I can help fill your gratitude cup even a little each day! Oh and I almost forgot my newsletter!! You can now sign up for the Newsletter by text! It is easy! Text GRATITUDEPROJECT to 22828  No space in Gratitudeproject  the only text you will get back is confirming you signed up! and I do not spam! I only send out a monthly newsletter and sometimes not even that! I promise to keep it to a minimum!

Rest assured this will be very encouraging to me! Trust me when I say, validation in knowing I may be helping others, even in some small way, is helping me to fulfill my purpose.

So come on, like my page 🙂  This will also allow you to get updates on my book! If interested of course! ❤

Find me on Facebook by searching  The Gratitude Diva-The Gratitude Project  **even easier you can just click the box to your right that asks you to “like” the page!  🙂

If you want to join the private group on Facebook search The Gratitude Challenge with The Gratitude Diva 🙂 And ask to join<—— you do not have to do anything! It is a challenge because I challenge you to practice gratitude every day and not have a major shift in your life! 🙂

Thank you so much for your support and encouragement!! It means the world to me.


assumeEvery day, thanks to Social Media sites, I get to see a lot of people making a lot of assumptions. It is disturbing to read/hear the way people think of others. So much judgement and assumption happening. It astounds me at times how it is that people can’t see what they do. Why not take a step back and look in the mirror. Or better yet, browse through your Facebook page or Twitter Feed for past posts and see who you really are.

Do you like what you see? I hope so. It is so important for us to like…no, love, who we are!

Ya know I do not say this because I think we are hurting so many people with our words (although we definitely could be), it is more about US. We are worthy of being a better person, we are worthy of love and I think by posting so much judgement and hate on public social sites we deprive our self of the love we are so deserving of.

Rather than posting judgmental comments, which in a lot of cases is to assume the heart and true feelings of others without even asking if this is really the way they feel, maybe take time to get to know someone.  This is one area where Social Media sites have failed! We have so many “friends” but do we really know them? Are they truly friends?  Maybe take a few minutes to get to know someone before you decide what they are really thinking!  I see too many people misunderstand the written word, another thing we can thank progress for! Too many people carry on “text” relationships and there is so much misunderstanding!  I think we need to have a little more face time going on!

So love yourself enough to want to live with integrity!  Love yourself enough to be able to look back on your life and feel good about who you are!

Look in the mirror folks. Love what you see.

Matthew 22:36-40 Teacher, which is the greatest commandment in the Law?”Jesus replied: “‘Love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your mind.This is the first and greatest commandment. And the second is like it: ‘Love your neighbor as yourself.All the Law and the Prophets hang on these two commandments.”
