Life isn’t always easy and you can’t just make all of your problems go away just by being grateful, but this simple act can change your perspective and put you in a more resourceful state of mind.

If you can teach yourself this discipline, you’ll find that your attitude is more optimistic, you’ll be better equipped to deal with your challenges and you’ll be a much nicer person to be around.

For the record, I have a lot of things to be grateful for.

My three for today would be:

  1. The presence of God in my life.
  2. My awesome family.
  3. The nice warm weather as we move closer to summer.
