I’ve started a new practice of making a gratitude list everyday. It’s a simple thing, but I believe it will have a big effect on changing my attitude.
So each night my goal is to write about five or so things I’m grateful about. I’m going to email myself the list.
I will try to do this every day whether I’m feeling good or bad.
The list will be things like my kids and wife most days but also little things, like a good meal or good company or a pleasant time I had playing with my kids.
I think the list will also help show me what truly matters in life.
And as they say, “A grateful alcoholic won’t drink.”
