I rarely ever have a down day. Instead, I have a gratitude list running in the back of my mind pretty much all the time. I just started with the basics: Grateful for having two legs, two arms, two eyes, ears, etc. I would remind myself how lucky I was to be healthy, not in a wheelchair, or on a ventilator, etc. I'd go from there and be grateful for having all the good people I have in my life, and plenty to eat, etc. Grateful for living in a great place, having so much opportunity and luck.......... anyway - when you think positively and with a gratitude list - it pulls you up out of a temporary funk. Someone older and very bright once told me: "We make our own happiness" and that seems to be true for me.
