Overdose on Gratitude

We tend to underestimate the power of gratitude. For some, gratitude is overrated; and I can tell you now that when you are going through a difficult time, gratitude is the last thing on your mind. How can you be grateful when it feels like you’re being thrown into a pit 50 feet deep? I have been to that point of difficulty and I have been back, and believe me, gratitude is better.

Gratitude is a drug – a good one you should gulp like vitamins. It’s like a ‘happy’ pill. When you start your day with gratitude, it is difficult for any trial or unexpected sad event to derail you. When you think of things you are grateful for halfway through the day, it is difficult for anyone’s ill perceptions of you to weigh you down. When you end your day with gratitude, it is difficult to be distracted by what’s not working out.  Let gratitude become a habit. If you look for things to be grateful for, you will find lots of them. If you find things to complain about, you will find lots. Wouldn’t you rather be grateful?
