The single best thing about gratitude is how easy it becomes to shift your mindset. Something bad happened? I’m grateful it’s not something worse. Had a bad day? I’m grateful that at least I had a day. Things aren’t going my way? I’m grateful just for the air to breathe.
So many things in our life go unnoticed. And so many things we’re chasing after are just not that important. What’s important is what we have here, now, this second, in this real and exact moment. Everything else is just something that already happened or something that not happened yet.
Let’s come back to present moment. Let’s be happy now.
