Wow! My brother just sent me the link to this blog. It’s great. But maybe I’m just psyched because I have my own blog-o-gratitude and now, after reading “Pay It Forward” by Robert Emmons, I feel like I’m right about it’s potential to have a real, positive impact on people.

Thanks to the Central City Co-Op for making their weekly newsletter and in it linking to an article thoughtfully written for Greater Good which, thanks to its authors and editors, is in every sense a good read!

Hi – I’m so excited just to have discovered this institute at Berkeley. I’m most grateful though for recovering from cancer, and in the process losing my fear to a point where all I want to do is live my mission in life to make the world a happier place. This whole experience gave me a drive I may not otherwise have had!

I am grateful for so much–my family, friends, good health, etc. Also for getting this magazine while at Berkeley last week-it is filled with such great articlces, scientific and for the “greater good”. Thanks for your publication..
