What Does Gratitude Mean To You?

Ever thought about the power of gratitude, seriously?

We should be thankful for all that we have.

If you concentrate on what you don’t have, you will never have enough to be happy.

For years, I thought and read about gratitude but never fully understood or applied it to my life.

I started to pay more attention to my life and realized that I needed to learn to practice gratitude and truly learn what it meant to me personally.

It did not take long to realize that you can actually reduce stress, fear, anxiety and depression just by using gratitude.

Bottom line, gratitude can extend your life and make your days ever so much brighter.

When you find that you are truly grateful for the people in your life, you will soon see your relationships will deepen, as you begin to see them as being wonderful, strong and supportive for you instead of the negativity.

Focus on what you have instead of what you do not have.  Try to notice the abundance, discover all the new opportunities and potential surrounding your life.  Before you know it, you will be attracting people in your life to help you and this is all brought on by being grateful.

Giving to others, you will receive more in your life.

It is not just saying “thank you” but needs to be true heartfelt gratitude.  The more you say it, the more you feel, the more it can change your life.  Saying “Thanks” should not just be for Thanksgiving but should be done each day.

People that use daily gratitude experience less depression and stress; are more likely to stop and help others; exercise more regularly and make more progress to their personal goals.

When I am truly grateful for what I have like, my family, who love and support me; friends, that stand by me; my home; I realize these are major items in my life that I am so grateful for.

I am grateful for all the right opportunities that come my way, for my eyes to be open to the right road to be taken, things like that.  To me, being grateful, has made all the difference in the world.

The power of gratitude is huge!
