Recently, I've begun a new thing where I write 5 things I'm thankful for every day.  A friend of mine had suggested the idea as a way to help me to have a better attitude throughout the day and keep my focus on all the things that are right and good, the positive, in my life.


And guess what?  It certainly works!  Just by writing in my journal 5 "thankful things" daily has really helped me to see that the list of blessings are never-ending!  I am so blessed!  And it sooo helps to change my outlook, my attitude, and even the productivity of my day!


As Orrin said in one of his CDs, (I was listening to yesterday but I can't think of the name right now) he was talking about how most people look at the bad when, if they would focus on the good, they would see all the good and positive things and their lives would be much happier.  Oh, I remember now!  I think the name of the CD was the "Happiness Advantage"!


Let's live today in light of all our blessings! 


God bless,

Generally we should adopt good things in life and skip bad things; for example we used to bring some good changes in our attitude and behavior. Bad attitude and bad behavior will definitely bring bad result in our life; so we need professional help to bring good changes in our personality while changing our attitude.

Its really a good habit and it makes sense too. You should be thankful always for whatever we have and whatever we are.
