Before we dive into this week’s MarieTV episode, I have to tell you how amazing you are.

Your support of my appearance with Oprah on Super Soul Sunday was absolutely staggering.

The tweets, FB messages and emails you’ve shared with me have been so heartfelt, loving and encouraging and I deeply appreciate it.

Thank you, thank you, thank you a million times over!

If you tuned in, you know that one of the things I talked about with Oprah is the importance of gratitude.

But what I didn’t get to share was the dark side of this often cheery topic.

Let me explain. Here in the US, we’re getting ready to celebrate Thanksgiving and there’s going to be a lot of gratitude talk going around.

But what many of us don’t realize is that gratitude requires sacrifice, and it can be quite a shocker if you’re not ready for it. Click play to see what I mean.

VISUAL WARNING: brace yourself for some massive Jersey, 7th grade hair in this episode.

OK, now that you’ve been fully informed, let’s get this gratitude party started.

In the comments below, tell me 10 things you’re grateful for.

If you’ve got more, awesome – keep going. But I want to challenge you to write at least 10. And once you’re done, report any instant side effects about how you feel.

Thank you, as always, for watching and contributing. If you’re celebrating Thanksgiving this week, I wish you and your family a safe, loving and peaceful holiday filled with delicious food, tons of laughs and great times.

P.S.  If you missed me and Oprah on Super Soul Sunday, catch clips at our Oprah page now.

With love,
