Life is wonderful, but sometimes your day can be rough enough to sully your outlook. Your Starbucks order wasn’t right, your least-favorite co-worker wouldn’t stop talking, and Monday’s meeting ran way over. On days like these, it pays to take some time to remind yourself of the good things in life.

Even terrible workdays will be over in a few hours, but life is full of moments that make everything worthwhile. The trick is remembering what those things are. Every day is a gift and full of little things that it’s easy to take for granted.

So put the files away, go on your break and get grateful about the amazing things in your life. What everyday pleasures bring you joy that didn’t make the list? Let us know in the comment section to give us all a reminder.
