    Gratitude reminds me that what I have is already enough. It's easy to get caught up in comparison, but when I take a moment to reflect on all I have accomplished, I'm in complete awe. Practicing gratitude gets me out of a negative mindset. It places me in a more positive one where my fears and anxiety melt away, leaving mental real estate to focus on what motivates me to make the world better.
