Apparently there are studies that show people who keep a gratitude journal are more likely to be positive. I believe it. For some time now, I have performed a gratitude ritual every morning and it is a very important part of my daily routine and grounding process. It looks something like this:

I am grateful to have spent another day in this world and happy to be here right now

I am grateful for having a wonderful and loving wife and family

I am grateful for the events of yesterday (I like to reference one or more actual events and sometimes I am simply grateful for surviving bad events)

I am lucky to have an abundance of spiritual and physical riches

I am lucky to be here today
