Something going wrong can be used as a helpful trigger to look for and more deeply appreciate all we have to be grateful for.
For example, being sick the last couple of days has brought about a whirlwind of gratitude for...
- My fiancé for making me healthy meals and taking care of me
- My coworkers for understanding and supporting me while I'm out
- My dog for keeping me company and giving me love
- Our home that keeps me safe and comfortable
- Fresh, clean water that helps get me back to health
- My health that's typically so stable, fending off most sickness
- The level of mental clarify I typically have
...and so much more.

We can practice gratitude each and every day. Not a day goes by where there aren't multiple things we can take moments to be grateful for.
