I’m grateful for many, many things. On a journaling good day I always finish with a short line for something that I’m grateful for — and it can be as small and stupid as imaginable: ice cubes. This does help keep in perspective how lucky I am, and also is a powerful mind trick at the end of a bad day.

However, I’m really finding my daily maxims exercise useful and I had no gratefulness reminders in that ritual. These two are the winners:

Never let the things you want make you forget the things you have.
Sanchita Pandey
Gratitude is not only the greatest of virtues, but the parent of all others.
Marcus Tullius Cicero

Thank you for reading.
