Now we are a week past Thanksgiving day. Are you grateful for anything today? Measure your days by the good in your life, not the troubles, the difficulty, or complaints. Think of as many things as you can that make you smile, laugh, feel loved, or of which you are grateful. Hold those thoughts throughout your day. Do this every day, and see how your week shapes up. Do it for a month and see how things go. At that point, it will be a habit, and it will be the way you "are." People will notice. Those that like to complain will seek companions in misery elsewhere, and those who appreciate your positive attitude will come around...maybe just to see what you have that nobody else seems to. Make today awesome in spite of what happens!
