Sadly, the older I get the harder it would be for me to complete the second part because those who have influenced me the most are dying off. I just lost one of those people three days ago. Report

I cried and cried ... the person who hurt me most was also the person who had more involvement and encouragement in other areas of my life (despite family pressure pressure to the contrary... ) and that person is dead. Report

I was hesitant to watch because it was 7 minutes. It is well worth the time but have a box of Kleenex by you. Report

I have always been taught that "Thank you" makes room for more. Report

I have a lot of people in my life that mean a lot to me. Being a part of SparkPeople means a lot to me too. This video made me laugh and cry. When you are watching this you will need a tissue. Thank you for sharing Report

Daily gratitude it such a simple thing. For me, a middle-aged, overweight, woman suffering from diabetes, depression, anxiety, and an incurable "orphan" disease, it's so very easy to forget just how good my life is. I've been toying with a "Gratitude Journal," and finally began it today, even before viewing this video. I know that when I contemplate all I'm grateful for, it serves as a type of meditation, relaxing me and lifting my mood, no matter how depressed I happen to be. I expect a daily, written, practice will do even more for me. Report
