…life you have, you make it harder for your brain to imagine a ‘better’ future that leaves them out. When you appreciate the good things about your current situation, your brain finds it harder to ignore the fact that they’re often lacking from the imaginary future it creates for you.
Gratitude really is crucial to happiness. If you are always looking for that thing that will make you happy and ignore the blessings you currently have then you may not even recognize happiness when it shows up. Cultivate an attitude of gratitude now for the small things and when the real magic happens, you’ll know it and appreciate it more.
