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 17, 2012
I AM GRATEFUL FOR SOUND FINANCIAL ADVICE.
...from my wife and my financial adviser.
On the first glance it seemed like a great deal...take some money out of my IRA and buy a rental property that would provide good cash flow...until I was advised that there would be several thousands of dollars penalty and then it wasn't such a good deal anymore.
Thankful I have people that know more about this stuff than I do.
