It’s great to be grateful

It just says so right here.

It’s science, but also common sense: Choosing to focus on good things makes you feel better than focusing on bad things. As my teenage kids would say, “Thank you, Captain Obvious.” In the slightly more elegant language of the Stoic philosopher Epictetus, “He is a man of sense who does not grieve for what he has not, but rejoices in what he has.”

From the New York Times.

Choose To Be Grateful. It Will Make You Happier.

I am grateful that I have so many things to be grateful for!

Happy Thanksgiving, dear readers!
