Sheryl Sandberg at the University of California at Berkeley 2016 Commencement

Such a moving Commencement Address.  Click here.  I didn’t know this lady until I read about her husband suddenly dying about a year ago.  Her remarks start at 1.24 of the tape.

I’m going to try this tonight.

Finding gratitude and appreciation is key to resilience.  People who take the time to list things they are grateful for are happier and healthier.  It turns out that counting your blessings can actually increase your blessings.  My New Year’s resolution this year is to write down three moments of joy before I go to bed each night.  This simple practice has changed my life.  Because no matter what happens each day, I go to sleep thinking of something cheerful.  Try it. Start tonight when you have so many fun moments to list— although maybe do it before you hit Kip’s and can still remember what they are.
