7 Scientifically Proven Benefits Of Gratitude That Will Motivate You To Give Thanks Year-Round (Forbes)

To whom or what are we grateful? Can we be abstract or vague about gratitude?

I believe that as we are first grateful to our Creator, then we condition and position ourselves to be authentically grateful to others … in whatever context we relate to them: family, friendship, business/work, our place in the larger world, and so on.

Gratitude is like PRIMING a PUMP. Surprisingly, as we make the decision to be thankful, it releases a spring of gratitude, a flow of thankfulness.

With a grateful heart-set, focus upon what you do have. “Mysteriously,” as we do this, we increasingly attract what is good and right.
