This year has been tough on everyone but at the end of the day we have a lot to be thankful for. Phillip and I spend some time today talking about just how fortunate we are all things considered and it really brightened up our day. We recently read an article about creating a bad day meter to help get ourselves out of the pity hole and onto a brighter day. Ours starts with a 1 being getting in your car and realizing you need gas, a 5 is spilling a drink on your computer, and a 10 is a family member passing. Now when we have a small inconvenience like spilling some coffee on our shirt we move on and laugh because of how insignificant it really is. So this year, even though it’s a lot different, remind yourself of all of the fortunate things in your life!
