Take out your journal and start recording all the things in your current job or situation that are actually pretty good. You get a salaryÃ¢ÂÂeven though you think it inadequateÃ¢ÂÂbe grateful for it. Is your boss a tyrant? Be grateful for the days when he or she behaves like a decent human being. Be grateful for small thingsÃ¢ÂÂlike the cold soda in the vending machine. Be grateful for big thingsÃ¢ÂÂsuch as the opportunity to learn new things. As you make such a list, you'll be amazed at how many things in your present job are actually quite good. Pause and feel grateful for each and every one of them. Let this feeling envelop and flow out from you.
