Attend to the good.

A Native American fable describes an elder telling his grandson that inside of us there is a battle between two wolves. One wolf is negativity and one wolf positivity. "Which wolf wins?" asks the grandson. The grandfather replies, "The one you feed." Focusing on what is good in your life increases feelings of hopefulness and appreciation, makes you more receptive to others and to possibilities, and counteracts negative feelings. (Wilkinson)
