Being thankful in all things can really help to change your worldview, and make you a happier person.
Thankfulness reminds you of positive things in your life: Sometimes we forget just how much we actually have. Being thankful makes us realize just how much we’ve got.
Thankfulness helps to turn the bad into good: Received a pay cut recently? Be thankful that you have a job in the first place. Don’t have as much money for gifts this Christmas? Be thankful that you can still pay your bills!
Thankfulness reminds us what is important: Being thankful helps us to realize the things that are most important in our lives, like family, friends and God.
Being grateful every day makes you a more positive person: If you make an effort every day to be thankful, you’ll become a more positive person because you’re constantly reminding yourself of the good in your life – and helping other people to feel your gratitude – making them happier!
Being thankful improves relationships:
When you express gratitude to others, it has the nice side effect of improving the relationship because you are telling the other person how much you value their contribution in your life. It will also improve your relationship with God when you are thankful, because we are made to be in relationship with Him, to praise Him and be thankful to Him.
