Less complaining, more gratitude.

At any given moment, something could be going wrong in our lives. Whether in our bodies, our social interactions, or our society, there likely is something happening we’d rather not see.

Conversely, right now there also likely is something going right in our lives. At some level of our existence, a blessing or boon is happening.

While we don’t want to deny what we see, we also can be selective about where we place our focus. Looking for the good in life helps us find it more easily.

Gratitude sets up a positive feedback loop—we get more of what we appreciate. Energy flows where attention goes. So, it pays for us to put more energy into being grateful than being resentful or disappointed.

Today’s message suggests there is room for me to up my gratitude quotient. My thankfulness sweetens my life.
