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 16, 2012
I AM GRATEFUL FOR THE LUCK OF A GOOD GARDEN THIS YEAR.
Got started late, but finally am reaping the bounty of our garden. For some reason I have 3 tomato plants and 476 squash plants...all-inter-marrying between acorn squash, yellow squash and acorn squash...makes for some interesting progeny.
