Wake up thankful.
I've got a new beginning to each day. In the morning, as I get out of bed and make my way to the shower, I run through all the experiences, people and things I'm grateful for. On a good day, it's a long list that sees me out the door. On a rough day, I just try to give thanks for even one small thing (today, it was the vibrant colors of the changing leaves on our street that brightened my morning.)
Being thankful first thing helps me start the day on a more positive note.
