Remember what you need to be thankful for

Even if you are already faced with several problems in life, it does not mean nothing good has happened to you. At some point in your life over the past days or weeks, you have experienced something positive. It does not have to be a major even or experience. It can be something simple, but it means a lot to you. You can also write about people who matter to you, or those who have remained good to you over the years. Think of positive things, and you will carry on even if you are already having a difficult time.
