Focus on what you have not what you lack.

It’s easy to fall into the trap of dwelling on what we don’t have enough of, or what we do wrong or lack somehow – and when we’re down, sometimes that’s the only voice we hear. So this January, get yourself into the daily habit of thinking of one thing every morning that you DO HAVE, that you appreciate, that you’re grateful for. Don’t look for big things – seek out the small moments. Notice what you have that you are glad about. Think of something about yourself that you appreciate. This change in focus each day can slowly remind us that we are not lacking, we are enough.

And knowing that you are enough is a great antidote to feeling blue.
