The meaning of Gratitude:
The quality of being thankful; readiness to show appreciation for and to return kindness, gratefulness, thankfulness, thanks, appreciation, indebtedness.
When I was younger it was very hard to be thankful because I didn’t know how. It is hard to be thankful when all you see, feel and hear that I don’t have, this, I don’t have that. I felt there is nothing to be thankful for.
“Actually I did have so much to be thankful for, I just didn’t know it.
It was my husband who pointed out that I didn’t even say thank you at the supermarket checkout when I finished paying for my groceries. I didn’t even realise that I wasn’t even saying thank you. After that I started to say to thank you even for the little things I received. For the air I breathe in every moment to any help from family and friends. I found the more I become grateful, the more joy I received. I smiled more. As I smiled more, I was able to give more.
