Develop Some Gratitude & Happiness Today

QUESTION: What two days during the year are there no professional sports (i.e. hockey, football, baseball and basketball) being played?

[spoiler intro=”ANSWER (click show)”] The day before and the day after the Major League Baseball All-Star Game.


On one of these days ESPN holds the ESPY Awards. I turned on this years ESPY Awards just in time to see Robin Roberts receive the Arthur Ashe Courage Award. Prior to her coming up to the stage ESPN showed a video about Robin’s journey and her life.

Below is that 10 minute video. I dare you to watch or listen to it. It will give you a new perspective for your day, week, and even month. One of gratitude for what you have and that you wake up everyday.

      Right on David. I find myself looking at the next thing or wanting more but I need to remember to be thankful for what I have and what I have been given.
