Be thankful for wonderful things

Today, I was thinking about certain topics. But then I caught myself.

“Stay positive," I said to myself.

“And appreciate the good times."

A positive attitude goes a long way.

Remember all those times when you hoped for some extra money and then pretty soon it happened to find you out of nowhere? Well, that can happen again.

Remember when a big problem went away and never came back? That is certainly likely to occur again.

Remember when things turned bleak but before long you were back on track? I feel certain that can happen again for you.

Let contentment find a home in your mind and a place in your soul.

Count your blessings today. Find the good in your life and appreciate the wonderful qualities of those around you.

Yes, those other people are not perfect. And what about the person in the mirror? Remember all of the things you could have done better as a person last month and in all of the years that have passed.

Find the good all around you. Yes, bad things can happen and bad people could arrive to annoy and initiate you. Do your best to switch your mind to positive thoughts and feelings. Soon you will feel better and life will be good.
