There is something strange in the human psyche that prevents most of us from thinking about things to be thankful for.
The pressures of daily life rarely give us time to pause and reflect on the fact that however bad things may seem, they could always be worse.
We take so much for granted, and don’t truly appreciate what we have – until we no longer have it. Whether that be good health, money, a great job, or simply love, we miss it when its gone – but don’t give much thought to it at the time.
At Life Daily, we are always looking for ways to inspire, inform, or motivate you, or perhaps bring a smile to your face.

It will only take a few moments to browse through our short list, but it’s worth the time and effort just to make you feel better about yourself – and what you have.
