Day 220 – Gratitude is the Best Attitude

How many of us say, “Thank you?” I don’t mean just when someone gives you change at the grocery store or gives you a gift. I’m serious. How many of us express our gratitude on a consistent basis for things like being a good friend or a good listener?

There’s nothing more annoying than a person who doesn’t know how to say thank you. Vice-versa, there’s nothing more pleasant than a person who adopts an attitude of gratitude.

This kind of person is the best person to be around with because he has such a unique perspective on life. He sees life as an opportunity to do good, and not as an opportunity to bathe in other people’s good will.

Developing an attitude of gratitude also comes with a lot of benefits such as these:

1) Living A Better Life

People who know what it means to be grateful generally live a more fulfilling life. Why? That’s because they’re not ruled over by the constant need for material gratification. They’re not always calling out for attention either.

Those who have an attitude of gratitude see the beauty around them. They don’t necessarily have to have the latest clothes and gadgets because they are already happy with what they have and with what they continue to receive.

Always clamoring for the latest can be quite exhausting and unsatisfying. It can also get pretty lonely. On the other hand, those humble ones are constantly surrounded by true friends and family who genuinely care for each other.

2) Attracting More Positive Things

Those who have mastered the attitude of gratitude also tend to attract more good luck. After all, their thoughts usually dwell on contentment and happiness. Happiness begets happiness.

The universe is more inclined to give them more of what they already have. Meanwhile, those who can only think about not having the latest stuff are simply re-affirming their present state.

Ironic as it may be, that is how the law of attraction works. I guess having an attitude of gratitude really pays well.

3) Inner Peace

In such a materialistic era, inner peace is definitely hard to come by. However, a person who understands when to be grateful can easily summon up their inner peace. How?

Well, since they are already thankful for the many blessings that they have received, their hearts are no longer wailing in agony. They are also more true to themselves, more honest about their feelings, and are more willing to try different things.

Having an attitude of gratitude can improve your way of life in an instant! It starts with that warm feeling knowing that so many blessings have been laid at your feet and knowing that so many people here love you.

For the world needs dreamers and the world needs doers. But above all, the world needs dreamers who do. Live each day, that we are blessed to have on this planet, with the gift of being and invite opportunities to learn to live in the present moment with a grateful heart.
