What Are You Grateful For?

Reading Time: 3 minutes Gratitude is important because it’s helping me to banish disappointment. I haven’t come this far to only come this far.

rachaeltyrell-7-tedtalks

Reading Time: 2 minutes This blog’s title might sound a little like clickbait, but I swear that a TED talk can change my thoughts and feelings in ways that I didn’t expect.
