Gratitude is the answer

Our lives go up; our lives go down. That’s the way it is, and I am not sure there is a way to change it. Is there an answer to this “not-knowing” state? I don’t know – I certainly don’t have all the answers. But I can share what helps me – it’s gratitude for all things. If I perceive something as bad right now, it doesn’t mean that in a year I will perceive it the same way. So I try to find something to be grateful for in all things. It may not be the actual “thing” that is happening; it may not even be close to it. And don’t think I am a saint – I can’t always do it. But I do my best and I do try. I don’t always know the question, but in my book, gratitude is the answer.
