It makes me feel some kind of happiness to find things to be grateful for. You should try it out. Only then will you understand what I mean. It’s like a treat when you add more items to the list and you feel proud of yourself. Make a list of the things you are grateful for and let me know how it goes.

Positivity is a lifestyle!
