Gratitude is an expression of appreciation for what we have. It is opposed to a consumer-oriented focus on what we want or may need. Studies show that we can deliberately cultivate gratitude, and increase our well-being by doing so. Grateful thinking, and sharing it with others, is associated with increased levels of energy, optimism, and empathy.

Even More Reasons To Be Grateful for Gratitude

Gratitude allows celebration of the present.
Gratitude blocks toxic emotions like envy, resentment, regret and depression.
Gratitude strengthens social ties and self-worth.
Gratitude turns what we have into enough.
Grateful individuals are more stress-resilient.

Thank you Universe. For everything that I am, and everything that I have, and everyone I know - at this very moment on this perfect beautiful day.


  1. I was just doing my annual accounts and not feeling good about money. But...you have reminded me, I have no debts, I have enough and I AM grateful. Thanks for the reminder! It does feel better to be grateful.

    1. CharlotteP,

      Congratulations on having no debt - that is huge achievement these days. I like not owing money to anyone. Hope your day was great.

    2. It was! As was yours and Linda's too, I hope.
