Grateful people are happier, less depressed, less stressed, and more satisfied with their lives. Grateful people also have higher levels of control of their environments, personal growth, purpose in life, and self acceptance. Grateful people have more positive ways of coping with the difficulties they experience in life.
The longest lasting effects are caused by the act of writing “gratitude journals” every day, coupled with reviewing what you are grateful for, at the beginning of each day.

GRATITUDE - November 5, 2012
I AM GRATEFUL FOR THE COURAGE TO TAKE UP PLAYING THE BASS RATHER LATE IN LIFE.
Some public appearances.
Some great studio time.
Some video posts on YouTube (see sons, not so technology challenged....but to be fair...my 14 year old daughter can create an account on YouTube, upload a video and send it to the universe in under 5 minutes. It took me about a week to figure it out...ha).
But mainly, the satisfaction and fun of being able to do it and the added bonus of staving off Alzheimers with remembring all the notes and the right sequence on several songs. When I can't remember what comes next, I will know I am done. But, not yet.
Totally cool to see the video replay that I am actually doing that thing I just talked about for 50 years.
Never too late to be the person you were meant to be and live forever on the internet.
