"When the dog bites, when the bee stings, when I'm feeling bad,
I simply remember my favourite things and then I don't feel so bad"....?
I guess I am going to reiterate her very pertinent advice and suggest you compile your own personal list of things you are eternally grateful for, to recall when the going gets tough.
During those tough times, it can be hard to see the forest for those distorted and terrifying trees, each an obstacle in its own right, out to get you or hold you back. You won't have the time or energy to get that "favourite things" list happening then, as you will be too busy worrying about things at hand, or speculating about the worst case scenarios, soon to consume you or those around you.
That's why, when the going is sublime, store the memories in your heart. "When the living is easy" take stock and take just a few seconds everyday to consider all the things you are truly grateful for in life, past and present. Give thanks to the Universe and remember these are the most precious posessions, along with time itself, you can ever hold!
Gratitude finds a way of multiplying tenfold!
The above are just a few personal examples of "the good things in life". It is by no means exhaustive!
