Don’t make life’s difficulties even more difficult by filling your mind with resentment. Instead, ease your burdens by choosing to be truly thankful for them.
If you feel resentment starting to take hold, stop and consider this. There’s nothing to be gained by bringing yourself down over what has already happened.
Use the occasion to remember all the things for which you can be thankful. Rise to the challenge of seeing the positive aspects that are surely there within any troubling situation.
Holding on to resentment will drain valuable energy away from you. Gratitude, on the other hand, can fill you with fresh, new positive energy.
Choose to see the value in your situation. Choose to look forward with confidence instead of looking backward with resentment.
Right now, there is much for which to be thankful. Focus on the positive possibilities, and find real joy in steadily bringing them to life.
