No matter how hard things are, if we look hard enough, think small enough, there is always something we can be grateful for.

September 21, 2020 is World Gratitude Day. There have been many studies that have proven that gratitude makes us happier and healthier. Like any emotion, gratitude can't be forced but we CAN cultivate our thoughts so that gratitude is more likely to arise. Practicing gratitude helps create a HABIT where we focus on the positive in life.


When we can appreciate every aspect of our lives (and accept those parts we can't be grateful for), we experience contentment, happiness, and equanimity - nothing throws us off balance. And no matter how hard things are, if we look hard enough, think small enough, there is always something we can be grateful for. Perhaps as many as 5 small things.
