It’s a hard thing to actually do: be grateful when there’s nothing wrong. You almost have to lose something in order to see its value. [..] Any time you deliberately imagine a problem you don’t actually have, you can create gratitude for not having that problem. [..] The deliberate envisioning of loss supplies the perspective necessary to appreciate the gifts in your life, because you can only truly understand how something is serving you once you know both its presence and its absence.
