One of the biggest obstacles to gratitude is resentment, says Barry Boyce, Mindful’s founding editor. From time to time, we need to undercut our own perspective and see things from the other side—maybe even from all sides. Here, Barry shares a gratitude practice to help us stop clinging to our ideas of what we want, and to work with the feelings that come up when we feel resistant to the way things are.
