Gratitude Journal - choosing cheerfulness

I haven't posted to the Gratitude Journal lately, though I have plenty to be grateful for. More gratfulness coming soon, I promise. Send me a note with the things you are grateful for, and I will post them on the site.

In the meantime, author Charlie Stross offers some reasons to be cheerful: less disease, poverty, and warfare and more technology with this caveat:

I'm sorry to note that most of the good stuff didn't happen to those of us in the developed world — but the human world is indisputably in better shape overall in 2010 than it was in 2000. And what makes my neighbour happier without damaging me makes my world a better place.
