What a day today is! It’s International Day of PEACE, a day that is being celebrated all over the world thanks to the UN. This morning UN Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon, said

Today is also World Gratitude Day, which has been tradition since 1965 when a group of world leaders gathered in Hawaii and thought it would be spectacular if, even for only one day, everyone was able to express their deepest gratitude without fear of judgment or repercussions for doing so. Many of these leaders marked the day on their calendars and brought it back to their motherlands and the tradition has been growing ever since.
As many of you are aware, I have been on a Gratitude kick lately with my meditation and blog posts. All five parts are completed, so incase you missed one, hop over to the blog and catch up or visit the meditation page directly and take a time out today to center yourself on what you are grateful for. This will surely create an inner peace that will be contagious.
If you have completed all five, I have recorded a new meditation in honor of International Day of Peace to help you feel the good vibes--even on a Monday.
You can find this meditation on the meditation page, or embedded below.
