GRATITUDE creates optimism and confidence. You feel better about life when you are THANKFUL. GRATITUDE is a wonderful gift to be shared. A simple THANK YOU to another is a beautiful act of kindness, caring, respect and love. Acknowledging all of the goodness around us every single day, makes for a more fulfilling and enjoyable time on this earth.
GRATITUDE can make your life happier and more satisfying. Keep a GRATITUDE journal. Every day write down three things that you are GRATEFUL for. It could be an unexpected phone call, or to find a ten-dollar bill on the sidewalk. Write down the event and state why you are GRATEFUL for the experience.
With GRATITUDE you are in a positive state of mind. Thus there will be less negativity. Showing GRATITUDE to others you eventually change that person’s world. You are then giving them something to be GRATFUL for. Be GRATEFUL for friendship, the element of TRUST is essential for the relationship. To paraphrase Simon Sinek; THE BEST DEFINITION OF TRUST IS GIVING SOMEONE THE POWER TO DESTROY YOU AND TRUSTING THAT THEY WILL NOT USE IT. That exchange of TRUST is a gift that one should be GRATEFUL for.
Showing GRATITUDE is a skill to be learned, it leads one to well-being. It is relatively easy to find something to be GRATEFUL for. Just look at a tree, a sunset or a trusted friend. There is so much to be GRATEFUL for. It has been found that it takes three positive episodes to offset one negative episode. Be GRATEFUL for the smallest positive event.
GRATITUDE IS A GIFT. CULTIVATE IT AND SHARE IT. ON THE STREET PASSING A STRANGER, SMILE. THE RETURN SMILE IS WHERE YOU FEEL GRATITUDE. THERE IS ALWAYS SOMETHING TO BE GRATEFUL FOR.
