The other night, I was going over the pros and cons of taking up an aspect of the "happiness manifesto", where one writes down 3-5 good things about each day, or things one is grateful for. I understood the idea of conditioning oneself to think positively and be grateful, but it didn't stick with me. I could just picture times in the future where I'd feel as though it were a task, or if I couldn't think of enough things, I'd end up frustrated. Similar to the difficulties of ending up "out of state" like Steve mentioned.
But this, this is something that my mind can chew on. Be grateful. Not just "for x". But... just... grateful.
Hmm. How about that.
