I have a blessings jar by me. Every few days I scribble down some of my blessings, so that even in dark times I can keep my mind focused on good things. Then on New Year's Day I will sit down and read them all. It is not my usual state of mind to be positive so this takes work. Whatever you focus on grows stronger, so I'd rather focus on my blessings. It's a choice. And I have to keep making it. Otherwise the negative is overwhelming.
