So whenever you’re feeling negative about your life experiences, stop for a second or two and contemplate all things for which you really should be grateful. It can be as simple as the cup of coffee you’re enjoying now or the lunch you have planned with a friend for later in the week. Think hard enough and think positive enough and eventually you see that there are things for which you can be grateful. However bad you think your life is, just look around the world and you will see that in comparison to others you are lucky indeed. Yes, of course, there will be people with a bigger slice of life’s cake than you’ve got but so what? Does it really matter? If you want to be happy it starts with a positive frame of mind and that starts with being grateful for whatever it is you’ve got. So go on, be grateful and be happy. ~Roy Sutton
