Grateful people are happier, less depressed, less stressed, and more satisfied with their lives. Grateful people also have higher levels of control of their environments, personal growth, purpose in life, and self acceptance. Grateful people have more positive ways of coping with the difficulties they experience in life.
The longest lasting effects are caused by the act of writing “gratitude journals” every day, coupled with reviewing what you are grateful for, at the beginning of each day.

GRATITUDE - January 13, 2012
I AM GRATEFUL FOR MY ABILITY TO WALK.
I can walk.(thanks to regular visits to the chiropractor after falling down a flight of stairs on my back).
I can get up out of chair and move forward as I like. I am not an invalid. I am not incapable of movement. i can experience a trek across the magnificence of an Alaskan glacier.
Such a small thing that goes unnoticed and unappreciated every day of our lives.
"I was sad because I had no shoes until I met a man that had no feet."
