It’s funny to think that we need to learn (or at least be reminded of) how to practice gratitude, isn’t it? It seems like something that would just be natural.
But sometimes, you really need to dig for it. If you’re anxious or depressed, it’s harder to find things that are working out the way you want them to. Sometimes things can be working out even better than you want them to and still go unnoticed.
Other people may see these wonderful things in your life, but when you’re in a deep, dark funk, all you see are more things to go wrong. More things to prepare for. More things to expect the worst from. More people to let you down. More to juggle, more to resent, more to wish away so something else (that wouldn’t make you happy if you had it in this current state of mind anyway) could take its place.
So let’s stop.
