Brain Wiring Gratitude

As I continue to speak to groups with my classes and workshops, I am asked on a regular basis…. What should I be writing about in my gratitude journal?  Now, as a rule, I really like to have people come up with their own blessings to include in their journal representing all of the things they are grateful for.

But sometimes I just can’t help myself when I mention that at least 2-3 times a week, I write in my gratitude journal just how grateful I am for the wiring that is between my temples.  It’s easy to forget about that until you see someone much less fortunate than you are.  I happen to believe that we come pre-wired, and are just fortunate that the wires go to the right place.

I also know from experience as I have a younger brother that is schizophrenic, and has suffered from his disease from about the time he was 12 years old.  Everyone in our family refers to him as “Jimmy” and I realized one day that that could have been me…. The one with the bad wiring named “Davey”

It reminds me how grateful I am for seemingly good brain wiring… or I like to say Brain Wiring Gratitude
