I rewatched “The Secret” last night and I am inspired to create this unusual article. I am going to update this article for 366 consecutive days (1 full year – 2008 is a leap year) of things I am grateful for in my life. If I ever feel down, I will come here and I am confident this article will lift me up and help me get through it. I will move this article to the top of the page by editing the time stamp at the beginning of each month.

I like one of the quote from Jack Canfield, the co-author of Chicken Soup for the Soul “When you have inspired thought, you have to trust it, and you have to act on it”.
