In our darkest of days, it’s difficult to have a positive attitude and to be grateful when the world around us feels like it’s crumbling. I personally know this feeling all too well from when I lost my father to a sudden heart attack when I was just 11-years-old, and it took me years to find what would help me cope and bring more positivity and gratitude back into my life as an adult. Ironically, writing about it in my book Authentic Power has been a huge part of my healing journey, but healing required much more than that.

I had a recent conversation with former Nardi Media client Sameer Bhide, author of One Fine Day, and I wanted to share it with you because his story is incredibly inspiring. He has found hope and positivity even after suffering a rare catastrophic hemorrhagic stroke, which he calls his One Fine Day that completely changed his life.

Read his advice for bringing more positivity and gratitude into your life, especially as we continue through the ongoing pandemic. Here’s a recap of our conversation:
