Let us fight the new enemies of gratitude and first of all regrets : « if I had had other parents, if I had had an older brother, if I had grown up elsewhere, that would not have happened to me, I would not have reacted in that way ». We have no control over past events ! They are written once and for all, and to regret them keeps us in a state of sorrow, resentment, bitterness, indeed victimisation.

Activity : Today I meditate on ten fine moments in my life. I choose an event, which could seem negative and which has led me to an experience I would never have contemplated.
