Each day you have a choice to make. Will you dwell on what's wrong or will you look for what's right and good? This doesn't mean you should ignore the issues that need resolving. But I can tell you from personal experience that when I choose to be on the lookout for those every day blessings, my day is so much better. I make the choice to be thankful.
Our church is in the process of memorizing Colossians 3. I am reminded of verses 14-16 (ESV):
14 And above all these put on love, which binds everything together in perfect harmony.15 And let the peace of Christ rule in your hearts, to which indeed you were called in one body. And be thankful. 16 Let the word of Christ dwell in you richly, teaching and admonishing one another in all wisdom, singing psalms and hymns and spiritual songs, with thankfulness in your hearts to God.
