Mondays have received a bad rap. Greet the Week is a way of bringing sunshine and good cheer into your workweek. Life is all about perception, so when you think and act differently, more positive feelings and healthier physiology follow. Guaranteed.

11/11/19: Veteran’s Day
Showing Appreciation for this Country’s Veterans
Monday is Veteran’s Day. It is a “celebration to honor America's veterans for their patriotism, love of country, and willingness to serve and sacrifice for the common good.”
Even if you don’t agree with the decision to build a military or for fighting a war, you are still talking about people who have sacrificed their lives for their country. While those who serve may be classified as “patriots”, one can argue that some of the decisions are made for nationalistic reasons.
Join Mona and Jan as we talk about the origins of Veterans Day and the pros and cons of patriotism vs. nationalism.
Moving from “Cause and Effect” to “Causing an Effect”
Most people go through life believing that there is a cause for everything that happens. That is known as linear thinking: A causes B. The reality is, that for most of what happens, there is more than just one cause. There is an accumulation of circumstances that resulted in the event, many of which you have no control over.
Don’t be a passive bystander in your life and just let things happen. Instead of thinking about what caused the effect, take action and cause the effect you want! I (Jan) found this little nugget in Joe Dispenza’s book, Breaking the Habit of Being Yourself.
Join Mona and Jan as we discuss how to go about “causing an effect”.

Where do thoughts come from? How do those thoughts expand into ideas never thought before? How do we determine which thoughts to act upon?
