Tuesday, July 14, 2020 – When you're feeling troubled, a different perspective can truly help to turn things around. Realize that you’re in a much better situation than many people in the world. Pause to give thanks for shelter, meals, and companionship today. When you’re waiting in a checkout line, make mental gratitude lists. If you drive to work, put on some upbeat music you enjoyed while growing up. When you direct your mind toward calm waters, it will sail smoothly. If an unpleasant thought occurs to you, simply acknowledge it, then move on to more fulfilling ideas. Don't give power to negativity.
