Acceptance of this pain, and allowing this pain to be what it is in our life does not mean however that we need to suffer.

      Yes. I truly believe that happiness can be taught and that it’s something that you can get with Gratitude. Generating Gratitude Energy should be a habitual exercise. It’s a bit difficult at first, But once you get in the flow, many other benefits will follow. Not just contentment, but abundance as well.

      May your days be filled with Gratitude Energy ;-D
