I was ranting to my mom the other day when she reminded me to always be thankful. I’ve always been an optimist looking at the bright side of life so I was caught completely off guard when she called me out on this. I have to admit that in that moment, my discontent got the best of me. Don’t get me wrong, it’s not bad to want more. There’s nothing wrong with striving for excellence, for betterment, for magis in our daily lives. But I believe that in one’s pursuit of these, an attitude of gratitude should be maintained. Not only is it possible, it’s recommended that you be grateful for your current situation while you make your way to the top. Even if it isn’t exactly going your way, you should still acknowledge the things that are; or that things will

Keep carrying on but don’t forget to take in the view and smell the roses. Haven’t we been told enough that happier people are those who focus on what they have rather than what they don’t?
