This week I shared the great things list on my blog. I create that list on Facebook every day.
At first I wondered how long I would be able to keep doing that - finding ten great things that happened every day. When I'm on vacation it's easy. But what happens when it's back to work?
I think it's still easy - as long as I've trained myself to look for the great things that happen. I do that by being grateful. If I wake up with the attitude of gratitude I will naturally find great things about the day.
It's easy to complain about things that went wrong. I fell in to that trap this week on the day when my Lowe's order got messed up, and my work issue (outlined prior) still wasn't resolved. But focusing on those issues raises stress and makes for a bad day. If I instead work on finding a solution (which we did with Lowe's - still working on the other), and then turn my attention to what's great in life - things go much better.
