I believe that when you fill your life, heart and time with gratitude, it leaves very little space for the bad things in life. Also it becomes contagious and people start to notice the small things in life. Part of this for me is learning to live in the present and to also make the best of what we have as a family. Life has taught me that experiences bring us more happiness than material things as a family, so we would rather make memories than buy goods. My boys end their days writing three things they are grateful for that day. It helps them to go to sleep on a positive note and I hope teaches them to be cup half full people.
"The happiest people do not have the best of everything they make the best of everything"
