- Albert Clarke
"Often we think we will be happy when we get this or that: the new job, the new home, the someone special. And we are... for a while. But then we are ready for something else, and something else and something else.
"There have been times when I have felt hopeless and depressed and deprived. However, when I have had the ability, the vision, and the willingness to focus on something I do have and for which I feel gratitude, my energy-draining emotions melt and I feel joy in my heart. My spirit lifts and the feelings of hopelessness, depression, or deprivation melt away.
"Today I am focusing on at least one thing for which I am grateful. It is amazing how much peace this brings me!"
