30 Reasons I'm Grateful!

So many things go wrong in life and we can easily get lost in thought, focusing on nothing but what’s not right with our lives. So, I thought, wouldn’t it be nice if at least once a year, on your birthday, you focused instead on what went right and that's what I'm going to do.

It’s a scientifically proven fact that keeping a gratitude journal makes you feel happier.
