When a cat sees a shiny thing it is instantly distracted. It will chase after the shiny thing and not notice anything else.
Starting today, the first day of a new year, I want you to try and see the shiny things in every day.
At the end of every day (especially the bad days) write down one good thing about the day and put it in a jar or a tin. They are there if you look for them.
At the end of the year, open the jar and read through all the things you have written.
