What went right?
We’re wired to pay attention to the red lights. We’re not aware of just how many green lights we pass through each day. We focus on the 3 things that went wrong, and miss the 30 things that went right.
You have to be thoughtful to be thankful. You have to step back and see the bigger picture – every day. The unwanted stuff that shows up – in balance – is far smaller than the blessings.
See with clearer eyes, do the arithmetic, and count your blessings.
