Mastering the Art of Thanks continued

Good fortune isn't written in the stars... it's in your notebook. Taking time every day to jot down some of the gift in your life (people, pleasures, talents, etc), makes those feelings feel more tangible. Not into journaling? Get the same effect by exchanging an email with someone you love.

Remember: every cloud has a silver lining. It's hard to feel fortunate when something is happening that's unfortunate. Instead of dwelling, tell yourself, "Yes, this is bad but at least I ___" and fill in something you're still happy about.
