Grateful for each new day

I am grateful to wake up to each new day and the hope and possibilities that it brings.

I don't know if you are religious, but I give thanks to God each day for the joy that I know I will experience.

There is nothing to be gained from feeling down every day - I have been there - or being worried about "my" problems.

I have heard it said that if we all were to dump our problems in the middle of the room and take a look, we would quickly gather up our own problems once we saw what everyone else had.

Geoff,
Thank you for this. I think if we all looked at things in this way we would be a lot happier. I know I wouldn't choose someone else's problems over mine. What a great way to see things. This kind of relates to the law of relativity and how all things are relative.

Every ones problems are relative to their own lives. It may seem that they have a big house, but they also have a big mortgage and when we look at it as being relative, their home may only be big to us and small compared to others.
