The Art of Gratitude
Thu 07 10 2021

It is more important than ever to practice gratefulness in your life. This is a difficult task, especially during the holiday season when we are bombarded with gifts and opportunities. Gratitude can be challenging at times, but it's worth it in the end! In this blog post we will discuss how you can cultivate an attitude of gratitude that will help you live a happier and healthier life.

- Be thankful for what you have. The holiday season is not the time to wish that your reality was different, but rather it's a chance to look at all of the things that you are already blessed with in your life. Gratitude unlocks happiness! In this article on "The Secret" by Rhonda Byrne, she says: “When we feel gratitude and appreciation for every good thing that happens in our lives - no matter how small or insignificant it may seem - something wonderful begins to happen...A feeling of love starts growing from deep inside us." Our job isn't too difficult when we choose to cultivate an attitude of gratefulness.

- Take responsibility for how happy you make yourself. You are responsible for choosing how you feel. You are in control of your thoughts, feelings, and actions. If we can think about this way, then being grateful is a choice that we make every day when we choose to be happy!

- Focus on the present moment. Gratitude begins with attention to what's happening right now - not what happened yesterday or what may happen tomorrow.

- Practice gratitude with others, not just yourself. Gratitude is a social emotion that spreads from person to person like wildfire! When we practice gratefulness by talking about what we're thankful for and expressing our appreciation for people who have helped us in the past or present - it becomes easier to be more grateful day to day.

- Remember the bigger picture! We are lucky to have life - so being grateful for it is not too much to ask, right? Life is a gift that some of us don't get; we should be thankful every single second and use our time well by practicing gratitude in all that we do.
