Although today is Thanksgiving (in the United States), I am grateful every single day of my life. I have fought long and hard to get where I am. It has been incredibly difficult at times, and I wondered on many occasions if I would make it, BUT I have. Each night before I go to bed, I write five things in my journal that I am grateful for that happened that day. I’ve been doing this for a couple of years, and I have to admit, I look forward to it. During the day, I am always on the lookout for things to be grateful for. Some times it is something big and important; other times, it may be as simple as penny I find on the street. Having an attitude of gratitude really does make a difference.
