At the end of a bad day (or even a bad week), you might find yourself feeling like everything in your life is falling apart. Nothing seems to be going right, and you can't help but feel overwhelmed. Take a moment to think of the little things that are going right. Remembering the positive aspects of life can lift your spirits even on the toughest days.

Here are 30 little things to be grateful for when everything else is falling apart:
