If you want to make the best of what you have, it is necessary to maintain a positive Outlook at all times. However, this is easier said than done and it isn't always possible to be positive especially when we are grieving the loss of a loved one. Despite this, there are certain things you can do to remain thankful through grief. Not only will this help to improve your mental frame of mind but can also keep you stress and frustration free:

  • Focus on all the good memories that you have about the person and the time that you have spent with them. Doing this allows you to be thankful for having had such a wonderful person in your life, which is a very important thing.
     
  • You can also thank the god or higher power that you believe in for to giving you the opportunity to spend precious moments with the person. While you may feel various emotions going through your mind, it's best to think about the good things rather than the laws that you are facing.
     
  • Spend some time with close friends and family members and be thankful that you have someone around you to support you in this difficult time.
     
  • Most people do not realize but they have a significant amount of inner strength. You should be thankful for this strength as it gives you the ability to move on with life and support other family members that have been affected as well.
     
  • Remaining positive, involving yourself in productive activities, supporting your family and taking support from them can help you handle your grief in a better way.
