Gratitude Can Improve Our Lives

Gratitude is a powerful thing. It can dramatically improve our lives and the lives of people around us. Start embracing gratitude by counting your blessings, giving thanks for little things always and be content. And making it a habit too!

Do you know people who don't seem happy? Be ready with a smile and encouraging words each time you see them. You may need to have patience, but your friends will appreciate it. Your interactions with them will be much more pleasant. And as a result you'll have a new reason to be thankful! :)

I believe that hard times make good times sweeter. Remember that obstacles and challenges not only make us stronger, but they cause us to get out of our comfort zone. Without challenges, there can be no improvement. Without obstacles, there can be no achievement. Be thankful for the opportunities that they provide.

True gratitude can improve our lives, but it needs to involve action. Lend a hand to someone in need. Pitch in to help with projects. Give your time & resources. Listen to others. Give back as often as you can. Even a friendly smile can make all the difference in the world.

What are you thankful for?

Hi Kitty,
Enjoyed this post. I am grateful for the love of my family, my animals, my garden, my community, my health, my freedom (country without wars) my little 10 year old Golf GTI ( gutsy and reliable)and my ability to grow and learn everyday.

How blessed am I to live in Australia. I have safety, all of my basic material needs met, and almost no religious persecution, or at least not of the sort that others elsewhere in the world experience. Every day the unspoken prayer of my heart is that I won't take these things for granted, and that I won't forget those less fortunate than I am.
