Why I Taught Myself to (Mostly)Stay in Gratitude

I’m one of those people who believes we have a great deal of control over how we feel. This is an attitude I’ve gradually adopted over years, even decades. Back in my 30s and even early 40s I thought ideas about being grateful were sappy. The idea of a gratitude journal or writing 3 things I’m grateful for daily often made me feel at least slightly nauseous.
