Be thankful every day, and don’t be thankful for just the good things; be thankful for everything. What makes up the magnificence of who you are in this very moment is all that your life has brought you—the highs and lows, the pleasure and pain, and the happiness and sadness you’ve experienced along the winding course of your life.
Cultivate the habit of being grateful for every good thing that comes to you, as well as for every undesirable challenge. Since all things in your life contribute to your advancement and growth, it’s wise to include everything when reflecting on what you are grateful for. Let full-spectrum gratitude become your new standard for giving thanks.
