Moving from the right to die to the desire to live

It’s compassion, without judgement, that moves the "death with dignity" conversation to a more personal and ultimately helpful exchange. Maybe then the conversation will shift from the so-called right to die to our right – and our desire – to live.

What is it about giving thanks that makes us healthy?

Gratitude expert Dr. Robert Emmons explains the three foundational stones of gratitude: looking for the good, receiving the good and sharing this good with others. This third aspect is perhaps the most interesting and important.
