When you’re in an emotional bind, remind yourself of the things in your life that are going well. Begin your day with feelings of gratitude and think of your blessings throughout the day. A blessing could be something as simple as birds singing in your garden at dawn, a loving child or loving pets.  This will help you gain perspective. Observe your thoughts and weed out those that are negative, replacing them with empowering ones.

With gratitude comes appreciation, which is the key for living honestly and completely in the moment, untroubled by what has gone before and what could come.

The perfectly lived moment will give birth to the perfect future moment.

  The unthankful heart… discovers no mercies; but let the thankful heart sweep through the day and, as the magnet finds the iron, so it will find, in every hour, some heavenly blessings! Henry Ward Beecher
