Sometimes, it seems so difficult to be thankful about anything, especially if we, regularly, listen to the news or the various network talk shows. Spend any time at all and we are lead to believe the world truly is "Going to Hell in a Handbasket"
Maybe their world is but yours doesn't have to be. Spend a little time each day thinking about the good things in your life both now and in the past. Think about those people who have helped you along the way. Life is full of both ups and downs. Dwell on the ups, learn from the downs and then, quit spending any time on them. Focus on happy moments and spend time making more of them. If something makes you happy, do more of it. If something makes you unhappy do less of it. Find a happy place, whether a location or a mindset and spend time there.
Above all, Give Thanks for the happy times, pass it on and help someone else to focus on their happy times and being thankful for them as well. Thankfulness and happiness go hand in hand and are, definitely contagious.
