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 - September 19, 2012
I AM GRATEFUL FOR THE WITNESS OF COURAGE, DETERMINATION AND POSITIVE THINKING ALL AROUND US.
I can't fathom any reason to feel sorry for myself in any of my life experiences when surrounded by this kind of courage, positive thinking and determination.
“If we all threw our problems in a pile and saw everyone
else's, we'd grab ours back.”
