Be grateful for everything that happens to you, for it takes everything that has happened to make you who you are. I know that some things are hard to be grateful for – there are several things going on in my own life that are hard to appreciate. And yet I try to be grateful for everything. But do not beat yourself up if you can’t find that gratitude right away – just find some things (or some thing) you can be grateful for right now. Work up to the hard things.
