Isn’t it strange that in a nation nicknamed the “land of opportunity” that so many struggle to find happiness?
I think, in part, that’s because we haven’t learned the discipline of gratitude. I’m not talking about the brief moments here and there where we acknowledge God’s blessings. I’m talking about living a life of gratitude.
Maybe gratitude is difficult because cynicism is too easy.
By nature, I’m an optimist. But it’s easy to turn pessimistic from time to time.
