My husband and I went through some slightly rough adventures of our own (nothing marriage or health-related) a few years back (more on that next week) and honestly as cheesy as it sounds, information I took from several of Oprah's shows is what gave me a very necessary attitude adjustment.

After the Secret, I remember when A New Earth: Awakening to Your Life's Purpose by Eckhart Tolle was announced as the newest piece for her book club. To say this book was life-changing is a gross understatement. A New Earth goes a bit deeper than The Secret and stresses the importance of living in the present moment.
So to go back to that last Oprah post for a second... In A New Earth, Tolle stresses becoming one with nature when you feel yourself slipping away from the present moment. I was having a day where I was stressing out about future events and needed to snap myself back into the present. I went to our patio, laid down on our bench and stared up at our tree. That's when I saw the Oprah Os...it was all just a little weird. :)
I hope I haven't completely overwhelmed (or bored) you with this ridiculous book of a post. I have such a hard time putting my thoughts into words. Until I read these two books, I didn't really know how to remain positive and present all day, everyday. Now I do and I can honestly say that I have never been happier. ...thanks to Oprah. :)
