Did you wake up grateful?
For waking up. For each breath. For the ability to see and read. For shelter and food. For fingernails and eyelids. For a thousand reasons … but just pick three and relish in them.

Now you have the ability to laugh and cry, feel the emotions that bring joy or pain. You can live with purpose, or drift mindlessly.

When you wake up grateful, you’ve got a positive head start on your day.
List the three things you are grateful for and remind yourself throughout the day.
You’ve got this!
