As a way to cope, I made a list of things I am grateful for today. It's something that I have found to be useful in the past. It has a stabilizing effect for me. It helps me keep a broader, more accurate, perspective. It doesn't always make me feel better. However, it usually does make coping a little easier.
What am I grateful for today?
I woke up this morning. I awoke from a restless night's sleep in my own bed. I didn't wake up with a hangover.
I am grateful to start my day…
