I may be 43 years old now, but I have finally learned some important life lessons that would've been useful to have for the last 38 years. The most impactful of which is a gratitude practice. I write down three things I am grateful for every day. If I wake up in a colossally bitchy mood this helps me snap out of it. Noticing how good a cup of coffee is in the morning, or seeing a wagging tail nearby makes me remember that there's way more good stuff than bad stuff in my life.
