Hello, my dear fantastic reader! How are you doing? How has your week being? Mine has been good so far; I am still coping with the school work. Today I would be addressing the value of being grateful
Gratitude! Gratitude! Gratitude! This doesn’t sound new to most of us. We undoubtedly have heard it over and over again. However, how many of us practice the act of gratitude?
Let’s start from identifying the meaning of gratitude. It can be defined as the expression of being thankful; Gratitude is a feeling of happiness that comes from appreciation.
We lose a lot of energy, and we end up hurting ourselves with negativity and the thought of how much more we have to attain. Think about how much time you spend on the phone or in-person talking, nagging and complaining about life. Our aim should be eliminating all outward anxiety, and we can start by practicing the act of gratitude. Even when you feel stressed, being grateful is one of the most widely recommended strategies for increasing happiness. Gratitude is a personality trait, a mood, and an emotion, those with a more grateful personality are more likely to experience grateful feelings and emotions. Why not embrace it.
As a Christian, I believe When we give thanks, we tend to remember a little better of who God is and what He has done. Whatever we face, when we give God thanks in the midst of the problem, it aligns our hearts with His. According to Cierco “Gratitude is not only the greatest virtue but the parent of all others.” Being grateful opens the door to more blessing. It promotes optimism. Even more, the act of gratitude is tied to rejoicing and peace.
Gratitude is essential for growth and increase. You can make gratitude a part of your life just by practicing it. Kindly share your thoughts, and opinion, as I am looking forward to them.
