"Gratitude unlocks the fullness of life. 
It turns what we have into enough, and more. 
It turns denial into acceptance, 
chaos to order, confusion to clarity. 
It can turn a meal into a feast, 
a house into a home, a stranger into a friend. 
Gratitude makes sense of our past, 
brings peace for today, 
and creates a vision for tomorrow." 
Melody Beattie

Gratitude may be -- in my opinion, one of the biggest stepping stones to living a positive lifestyle.  So many people focus on what is wrong, instead of what is right.  So many focus on what they do not have, instead of what they do have. When your focus is on those things, you are prevented from achieving true happiness.

Happiness comes when you can make the best of what you have -- when you can give thanks for all that is right and focus on the positive, while trying to improve the cards you've been dealt.  Once you find a few things to focus on that you are thankful for, you will be amazed at just how many more come to mind. Gratitude and happiness both have a tendency to multiply.

Thought of the Day:  Are you focusing on the right things?  A grateful heart makes a happy heart!

Have a wonderful day!
