"My mum taught me the importance of being grateful from an early age. Whenever I had something to complain about, she would remind me how lucky I was to be _______ (insert “healthy/ safe/ loved/ alive/ any word that would make one feel bad about whinging”). My mum continues to do this for me till this day, for which I am very grateful."
Leah Dieterich’s mother always told her to write thank you notes. So she does. To everything. Her blogthxthxthx is her daily exercise in gratitude.
