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 - Sept 6, 2012
I AM GRATEFUL FOR GETTING TO BE A GREAT UNCLE.
Grant Chiles Beardsley
My niece, Erica, just gave birth to a beautiful baby boy, named Grant. A wonderful touch is the middle name of Chiles, my mom's maiden name. Healthy and loved, we welcome him into this wonderful world, made just a bit more special, because of him.
