“I would maintain that thanks are the highest form of thought; and that gratitude is happiness doubled by wonder.” G.K. Chesterton
Gratitude is an abstract term used to denote appreciativeness or thankfulness. It is a term used beyond religion or culture and applies to a layman. It is often said that when you give thanks for the help you received today, you will receive more tomorrow.
Gratitude enables us maintain a healthy relationship with others and even ourselves.
When you live with an attitude of Gratitude, you are living in the realm of what is, and what could be -rather than what isn’t.
In the words of Charles Dickens Reflect upon your present blessings, of which every man has plenty; not on your past misfortunes, of which all men have some.
Gratitude also opens your eyes to the limitless potential of the universe, while dissatisfaction closes your eyes to it.
Gratitude turns what we have into enough, and more. It turns denial into acceptance, chaos into order, confusion into clarity. It makes sense of our past, brings peace for today, and creates a vision for tomorrow. –Melody Beattie
You should be grateful for the small things
You should be grateful for the big things.
You should be grateful for everything.
For gratitude often brings more blessings.
