We've all heard of the "attitude of gratitude." While we can't always choose the events in our lives, we can choose our reactions to the events. That in itself can give us more of a feeling of control. And feeling out of control is often at the heart of our discontent.
Three simple steps sum it up:
1) Be grateful
2) Read and learn about others' good fortune
3) Immerse yourself in the gratitude stream
And if you're not "feeling the love" during this season, you can change your perspective to thanksLIVING. What a difference one letter makes!
