Cultivate the habit of being grateful for every good thing that comes to you, and to give thanks continuously. And because all things have contributed to your advancement, you should include all things in your gratitude. ― Ralph Waldo Emerson
How do you feel? I hope it's awesome, but I'm guessing that's not always the case. We're surrounded by greatness, if we know where to look, there is always a reason to feel awesome. If you woke up safe and warm in your bed, acknowledge and be grateful for that. Many aren't as fortunate and are waking up in the streets, but at least they awaken with another chance to improve their lives, many don't awaken to get that chance. Our lives now are infinitely better than those of our ancestors. Health care, plumbing, electricity, more than enough food/clean water and you're freedom. Think of each think you're grateful for as a gold coin, with each new addition you become a little bit wealthier in happiness and the great thing about this currency is it's laying all around us just waiting to be picked up. Once you start noticing the vast universe of things you should be grateful for you'll find a wealth of happiness.
