Sometimes it's easy to focus on the bad things in our lives

like the things we can't do or don't have. But by taking time

to think about the good in our lives, we can switch our bad thoughts to good ones and be happier.

Think about what you have

People who love you?

People who you love? 

A safe place to sleep?

Food to eat?

Good health?

The ability to see a doctor if you get sick?

Safe drinking water?

Citizenship to a democratic society?

If you answered "yes," consider yourself lucky. For many people in the world, the answers to these questions is "no."
