Chapter One: Something Good Happened to You Today -- Did You Notice?

It's so easy to get caught up in daily problems: Your parents are mad at you, your best friend made plans that didn't include you, that math test was impossible, you didn't make the team. Yet believe it or not, in the middle of all that stress and trouble, there are wonderful things happening all around you, if you take the time to notice. Every day, take a minute to think of three good things that happened. They can be big events, like winning a game or getting a good grade. Or they can be small, hard-to-notice things, like hearing a good joke, receiving a compliment, or making a new friend. Even on your worst days, you can still appreciate your favorite stuffed animal, a long bike ride, or your good health. Don't let yourself get lost in your problems -- focusing on a few positives will keep your head above water even in the toughest times.
