The True Story of How Practicing Gratitude Changed my Life

When the student is ready, the teacher appears. Mine found me during a snowy Minnesota February when I was a disenchanted housewife with a big drinking problem. So it was a good thing she found me when she did. My teacher introduced me to the Gratitude Jar, the thing that ultimately turned my life into a miracle.

The inspiring true story of how practicing gratitude changed my life...

Those of you who have been to one of my live talks have seen the dramatic before and after photos of my transformation as a result of doing a simple 30-day gratitude practice.

In this video I share these photos along with my story of how practicing gratitude took me from being an overweight, closet drinking, hustling to pay my groceries, disenchanted housewife...

To being fully sober after many years of failed attempts, losing 25 pounds, attracting my dream job, and becoming happy, content, and peaceful for perhaps the first time ever.  

Freedom.

Freedom.

It's amazing to me that you can actually SEE the incredible transformation that happened as a result of my gratitude practice.

People kept telling me during my practice I had this "glow" around me, but I didn't quite understand what they were talking about until I saw these photos.

Now, I understand. Completely.

The "gratitude glow" is totally a thing.

Usually after I give my talk someone comes up to me and mentions how I don't even look like the same woman from the before photos.

To which I reply,"That's because I'm not."

I transformed from the inside out once I changed my mindset from the gutter, to grateful. Truly, it was like I got a makeover for my soul.
