There are many ways to make a gratitude list. Some keep a journal with them at all time, some do it at night. I do it in my mind twice a day, when I wake up, and when I go to bed. And during the day, when I find myself discontented, in self-pity, in not-fair-land of thinking, I take a piece of paper and I make a gratitude list. I write until I cannot think of anything else. I fill a whole page. It always brings me perspective. I move from lack to abundance.
