Finding the daily gratitude meme on FB kind of annoying. I'm happy to think about what I'm grateful for, but I don't really want to read about other people's stuff. Blah.

An ingratitude exercise might be more illuminating. Not just shit we don't appreciate in the complaining sense, but things we should be grateful for but systematically overlook. "I'm grateful for electricity", "I'm grateful for the assumption that I'm basically trustworthy because I'm over-educated", etc.
