I got this email and I wanted to share it with you...always be grateful!! LOVE IT!! 😍😍😍👨‍👩‍👦👨‍👩‍👦👨‍👩‍👦😍😍😍

Studies have shown that, at any given point in time, most people are pretty happy and content with approximately 80-85% of the various aspects of their life, leaving about 15-20% that they would like to change. Overall, most of us are fairly happy with what is happening in our lives.

There is a tendency though to focus, almost exclusively, on the 15-20% that is not where we want it to be. Certainly, this area needs our attention, but not to the omission of all that is good and working. When we only focus on the percentage that is not where we want it to be, we create an incomplete picture. This skewed view can often be the very thing that keeps us from achieving more. You are at your best when you're positive and encouraged, taking on new challenges, thriving and growing.

Expand your view to include all that is working and you will find that you'll have more gratitude in your heart and a better outlook to go and take on the other areas that you desire to improve. You have a lot for which to be grateful.

Consciously choose gratitude.
