Gratitude is the feeling and quality of being thankful, and the ability to appreciate what exists in the present moment. It encourages empathy, love, self-awareness, and contentment. It makes us better people, more giving to others, and more forgiving to ourselves.
Practicing gratitude in our daily routine is simple yet important; it helps us consider why we’re drawn to the things we appreciate which in turn attracts more of those things into our life.
When we’re conscious of what we already have, we focus less on what we don’t have. Giving energy to what we don’t have is futile because when one thing is acquired or attained we move onto the next, and the next, and the cycle of chasing happiness continues in perpetuity. Gratitude transforms what we have into enough.
