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 - August 13, 2012
I AM GRATEFUL FOR ALL THOSE PEOPLE IN MY PAST THAT HELPED ME WITH THE POSITIVE PARTS OF WHO I AM TODAY.
gratitude is highly rated by those to whom we share it
with. Maybe instead of paying it forward, we could return it
backward - thanking all those in our lives who have helped us
become who we are today."
