Your good fortune

You cannot possibly be aware of all the things you have to be thankful for. But don’t let that stop you from trying.

There are many factors that add great value to your life that you’ll never know about. You are the beneficiary of thousands of years of cumulative progress.

Most of the details of how that progress was made have been lost to history. Yet the benefits of that progress continue to this day, and are always growing.

Be thankful for all the things you know to be thankful for. And be thankful for all those good things that make life better that you don’t even know about.

Sure, there are still many difficult problems, challenges, and tragedies. Yet those negative things occur within an overall context of goodness, possibility, and great opportunity.

Gratitude enables you to experience more of that goodness, to access more opportunities. Be thankful, and reap the full benefit of good fortune that’s been coming your way longer than you can imagine.
