My 3-year old niece is sensitive and often focuses on what’s bad. So my sister has been practicing, "A thankful heart is a happy heart."
This is a good reminder for all of us. If we start focusing on what’s wrong, we can look for what we are thankful in the moment.
During our day most of it works. Usually our showers are hot. Just once in awhile it drips or is cold. Most of the time we can get our morning coffee. Rarely does the coffee maker stay not working. My car runs more than it doesn’t. My computer almost always turns on and works.
But, being humans, our brains focus on the part of the day that went badly.
What have you been complaining about today? What can you be thankful for today?
