GRATITUDE CREATES HAPPINESS

Without Gratitude There is no Happiness 

     Last week I wrote about your pendulum of life, and how our lives are always changing and will always move through good and challenging times. Our  job is to pull ourselves up over the negative swing, knowing that something better will come along soon. The good we desire must come back to us because change is always happening, and everything has an opposite; good – bad, happy – sad etc.  This is a universal law, the law of duality. If you experience challenges in your life, be confident that it won’t last forever, life has to give you the opposite as well.    

     You can create a positive outcome faster by always seeing the positive side of all experiences. The more positive vibes you can create, the longer the pendulum of life will stay on the good swing. Yes, it can be hard to accomplish total control of our negative emotions. But it can be done, and it gets easier the longer you practice. 

     There is one simple trick that you can use to help bring your pendulum of life back from the negative side of the swing. You can speed up the downswing so that the good begins happening faster. How can I do that you ask? By being grateful, and showing gratitude to others. You can not be negative, and grateful at the same time, it simply cannot be done. Part of being happy and successful in this life is being thankful. Being grateful for everything you have, and everything you want to have, with NO strings attached. 

     A great way to wake up and start your day with gratitude is to; tell your body and mind “THANK YOU.” While you slept last night, your mind kept you breathing. Your mind kept your heart beating and blood flowing. Your liver transferred out toxins that you picked up during the day. Your kidneys processed waste. Your stomach turned food into energy, your mind was allowed to wander and be free. Your body made sure you would wake up healthier than when you went to sleep. You are a NEW YOU EVERY SINGLE DAY. No matter what happened in your life yesterday, while you were sleeping, your mind subconsciously created a new you. You need to stop for a second and do a happy dance!! That is some awesome news, and something to be grateful for every day! 

     I am not a doctor, I don’t know everything the body does in a scientific way. I just know some basic common sense stuff. I know that all of those amazing things and many more took place while you slept. While you were asleep, your subconscious mind was still working for you. Your mind and body made you a better person overnight. You did absolutely nothing but fall asleep. If for no other reason, you have to be thankful for that amazing blessing from the universe. You get a better life, a better body and all that is asked in return from you, is that you are grateful, and of course, sleep once a day. That is really cool. 

     That is a great reason to be happy! You are in total control. When you are thankful and grateful for what you have, the universe responds with more of what you’re thankful for. It’s so simple. 

     For instance, if you are grateful for being able to pay your bills, you will be able to pay your bills. Not just pay them, but you will have a little money left over. When you begin to be thankful for the money left over after paying the bills, even if it is only fifty cents, your prosperity will also increase. You need to be truly emotionally grateful then watch what happens.That simple shift from being grateful for having enough, to being grateful for having MORE than enough, will begin to change your life to a life of abundance and of dreams coming true. 

     All you have to do is become emotionally grateful for the abundance you already have. You will begin to see the abundance of food in your refrigerator you didn’t see before. You will see the abundance of clothing you already have, and you will see that you always have money left over. All you have to do is be grateful for the abundance you already have. 

     You can either become a glass half full person (Happy) or a glass half empty person (negative). The choice is all yours. You can choose to see that left over fifty cents as an abundant windfall, because you have money left over after all of your bills are paid. You can choose to gratefully celebrate your good fortune! Or, you can be ungrateful and disappointed that you only have fifty cents. It is your choice how you want to live. You have the ability to change how you see your life. 

     You need to decide if you want to be happy and grateful, or sad and disappointed. The key really is so simple. 

Show gratitude for everything you have today, and for everything you want to receive tomorrow.

     In 2004, having fallen and fractured my spine, I began a slow death spiral as an addict to legal opioids. For the next eight years, I battled depression and stomach ulcers. At the end of every month, I would face withdrawal symptoms, as well as the fear of running out of medication.      At one point, I was prescribed 1080 total pills every month! More than half were opioids, while the rest were prescribed to fix the problems opium was causing.      In 2012, I was rushed to the emergency room with bleeding ulcers. This happened again in 2014. I had lost almost 40 pounds during this time period. I was killing myself.      One night at the end of the month in 2014, I was facing imminent withdrawal sickness. Let me tell you: withdrawal sucks! I was not eligible for a refill but I needed the drugs. I grabbed a gun and went to a nearby pharmacy. I sat outside that store for about an hour. Finally, I decided that the best thing I could do would be to break away from the addictive drugs. I went home, went through some withdrawal sickness, and started planning my strategy.      It took me another two years to successfully get free. Eleven years after beginning my journey with opioids, I was able to beat the addiction through the use of medical marijuana, changing to a mostly natural-food diet, focusing on positivity and gratefulness, and getting outside in nature. I have been pharmaceutical free since 2016      Over several years of extensive research, I learned that medical marijuana could help with eliminating opioid addiction while reducing withdrawal symptoms and providing natural pain relief. I discovered that there was proven science backing up marijuana as medicine. I researched cannabis and hemp: their uses, benefits, and side effects, and how cannabinoids help the human body create homeostasis naturally, without side effects, addiction, or overdose issues.       As a master grower, I was aware of plant nutrient needs, and I realized that they are very similar to human nutrient needs. I began researching fruits, vegetables, and herbs extensively. Learning that nature provides all the nutrients a body needs. Consuming a variety of organic foods everyday will keep your body in a perfect state to fight off disease. As my body healed I was able to focus on my mind as well. You must; get your body right, to get your mind right, to get your life right.       I have also studied many current and historical positive thought mentors. Learning that, "we are what we think we are", as well as negative thoughts attract negative things, and positive thoughts attract positive outcomes.       I combined all of this knowledge to devise my theory on; The Three Life Centers of the body. Keeping these three areas balanced will keep your life balanced.      Medical marijuana helped reduce my drug withdrawal symptoms, enabling me to eliminate opioids, and I credit it with saving my life..      Because of my success eating and medicating naturally, maintaining positivity and gratitude, while embracing nature, I decided that I wanted to help educate others, and assist them with their own health and life issues.      I've been an advocate for medical marijuana legalization since 2014. I have lobbied senators, traveled statewide to speak on behalf of the cannabis community, and appeared in local forums, to share my journey and bring people's awareness to the benefits of medical marijuana, natural dieting, and positivity.       With this website, my goal is to dispel some myths, while educating you on a plant that has numerous health benefits (cannabis). Simplify your diet to achieve balance and good health through nature. Help you to create an environment of positivity and gratitude, and encourage you to get outside experience nature. I will even share some hidden gardening tips.
