There are so many things to be thankful for! My Mum gave me some advice the last time I saw her. She knew that something was coming up in my life that would be a bit difficult. Her advice was (in short), "Be thankful and enjoy the moment." Then she started to name some of the things that I would have to be thankful about during the difficult time. It gave me a different mindset! There were positives I had never thought of. I am remembering her advice and it has helped me. Instead of focusing on the negative things, I am trying to notice and count all my blessings.
