One of the tendencies of our ego is that it often focuses on what is wrong with our life situation, rather than recognizing the positives.

This is frequently an automatic default setting of the ego.

To manage this tendency we need to consciously think of the positive areas in our lives that we should be grateful for.

This does not mean developing an exaggerated super-positive attitude in which we try to convince ourselves that we do not have any problems in our lives. Rather it’s a matter of creating recognition that there are balancing factors involving good circumstances.

You might want to take a few minutes from time to time and write down a half-dozen of the numerous  aspects of your life that you are, or should be, thankful for.
