Having Gratitude Will Make You Happier In Life Print E-mail
People often realize how grateful they are through experiencing life changing events. Through our struggles often we learn to be thankful for what we already have. Recently I overheard someone say “I’m grateful to have my health”, this person had just experienced a hardship yet they decided to focus on the positive aspect of being grateful. This got me thinking how influential that simple statement was. If you take a good look you will discover the abundance of blessings in your life. It will be difficult to sweat the small stuff when you’re too focused on what is so positive about your life.

Gratitude means being grateful or thankful. Begin exploring what it is that you are grateful for and you will create more happiness in your life.


Studies suggest thankful people have better health, higher energy, experience less stress, they have higher income, more successful relationships, fall asleep easier at night and live longer lives. You can transform your life to have more gratitude by committing to practicing gratitude.

0 #3 Masaru Emoto 2011-11-14 10:33 I am grateful for my daughter, my family, my friends, my pets, "grace," love, and forgiveness. I am truly rich though many believe i am poor with little money and a housing project apartment. I am rich. You are too. We all are if we acknowledge all with gratitude. Hope this isn't too long Bless you Quote
