Thankfulness is an Asset
Clinical psychologist and author, Kay Redfield Jamison, wrote, “Grief is so human and it hits everyone at one point or another, at least, in their lives. If you love, you will grieve, and that's just given.” You have a right to be unsettled, distracted and distressed. But for a moment, just shift your gaze to thankfulness. If you experienced losing someone close to you, think of the time that you did have with them and how you can carry out their legacy. Be happy you have a good spouse or friend considering numerous people never experience this. In your daily life, be thankful you can see, hear, walk and can live another day. Write out everything in your life you can think of that you’re grateful for. People who do this over a period of time are happier. Plus, it gets your mind off of the wrong things.
