Today

Today is a brand new day.

BE THANKFUL
Be thankful that you don't already have everything you desire. If you did, what would there be to look forward to?

Be thankful when you don't know something, for it gives you the opportunity to learn.

Be thankful for the difficult times. During those times you grow.

Be thankful for your limitations, because they give you opportunities for improvement.

Be thankful for your mistakes. They will teach you valuable lessons.

Be thankful when you're tired and weary, because it means you've made a difference.

It's easy to be thankful for the good things.

A life of rich fulfillment comes to those who are also thankful for the setbacks.

Find a way to be thankful for your troubles, and they can become your blessings.

Yes you should be thankful. Thankful that you have a job and not living on the streets. There is always an upside to every situation.

It is most difficult to be thankful when things are not going your way. I try everyday to look on the bright side.

Tony Robbins said that when you are frustrated and having a tough time that is the time to get excited because it means you are about to learn something. He was very into perspective. How you look at things can certainly change whether you feel miserable or not. Perspective has become a big thing in my life. Not because of Tony Robbins though. I have changed the way I look at things, even events from my past, and it has made a tremendous difference.
Good post. Good things to think about.

I have learned to look at life positively. To be thankful for the things that you have. It does make a difference when you look at life this way.
