As I think of those who are suffering, I wonder what they have to be thankful for.
Think about the worst situation you have read, watched, or heard about. Imagine that was your life. Amongst that pain, could you find something to be thankful for? Although it would be difficult, I believe you could.
But why should you?
It is scientifically proven that positive mental attitudes are beneficial in many ways. Simply put, you’ll feel better and do better.
Now back to your life. More than likely, you are not in a catastrophically horibble, life-threatening situation, not knowing if you will be alive tomorrow. Sure, you probably have some problems to deal with, but being thankful will put your life and those problems in their proper perspective.
So be thankful. It’s the best way to live life.
