Have you ever found yourself complaining and then thought, "I should be thankful and find the positive in this very thing I am complaining about"?
About 4:45pm, I looked out the window in my office and noticed the sun was beginning to set. I immediately grumbled and thought about how much I hate leaving work when it is pitch black dark outside.
When I finally headed out of the office a little after 6:00pm, it definitely felt much later. Perhaps that's what I dislike about the early darkness: the feeling that the entire day is over very quickly. I soon realized that the new early darkness was the perfect opportunity to find thanks.
