“Everything else you see and experience in this world is effect, and that includes your feelings. The cause is always your thoughts.” -Rhonda Byrne

 A chapter in The Secret by Rhonda Byrne, teaches saying thank you, after every step you take. Every step, that means no matter how, far or no matter where you're saying to yourself thank you, because why not? Nothing in this life is necessarily promised, so every step you take, every breath you take why not be grateful for it. I tried repeating this practice today and it truly did cheer me up, because it made me feel better, it made me happy to focus on the fact that hey I really am alive and healthy and capable. My thoughts were of gratefulness and the effect made me feel good, even when I felt bored or alone when I began thinking of all the things to be grateful for it made me feel better.
