Gratitude shifts your focus from what your life lacks to the abundance that is already present.
Behavioral and psychological research has shown the surprising life improvements that can stem from the practice of gratitude. Giving thanks makes people happier and more resilient, it strengthens relationships, it improves health, and it reduces stress.
Don’t Take the Good For Granted. People tend to take for granted the good that is already present in their lives.
Enjoy the people in your life. Expressing appreciation for loved ones can also help create a closeness by allowing others to see how you look at them.
Use courtesy everyday. Today, ingratitude and thanklessness are far too common. Children forget to thank their parents for all that they do. Common courtesy is scorned. We take for granted the ways that others help us. Above all, we fail to thank God for His blessings.
