“He is a man of sense who does not grieve for what he has not, but rejoices in what he has.” -- Stoic philosopher Epictetus

In an interesting piece in the New York Times by Arthur C. Brooks, he cites experimental evidence that "suggests that we can actively choose to practice gratitude — and that doing so raises our happiness."

He notes that common sense says that "choosing to focus on good things makes you feel better than focusing on bad things."

But it isn't all Me-Me-me, as Brooks also says: "In addition to building our own happiness, choosing gratitude can also bring out the best in those around us." And gives examples.

Lots of quotes, but worth reading the whole article. I'm grateful for having read this today!

Life is not happening too you, it is happening for you.

(Not sure who this quote is credited to as I can't find it anywhere)

I love to remember this when things are tough as it helps me to realise that there is a reason behind it and a gift in it even when I can't see it.

I love this quote too Tracy, and I can't think of who said it either - only that it's been around a while laugh
