I was thinking for quite a long time on what topic to write about in my next post. One of my dearest friends suggested “Gratitude”. A wonderful idea and I really appreciate it. Therefore, first thing to mention in my post is that I am so grateful for my friend’s assistance. In addition, in this post I will give a look on gratitude definition and how it affects our life.
There are several definitions of gratitude. In Wikipedia, gratitude is defined as a feeling or attitude in acknowledgment of a benefit that one has received or will receive. Also and in Dictionary.com, the definition of gratitude is the quality or feeling of being grateful or thankful.
How Gratitude Affects Our Life
Melody Beattie said: “Gratitude unlocks the fullness of life. It turns what we have into enough, and more. It turns denial into acceptance, chaos to order, confusion to clarity. It can turn a meal into a feast, a house into a home, a stranger into a friend. Gratitude makes sense of our past, brings peace for today and creates a vision for tomorrow”. That is really how gratitude can affect our life.
In addition, living a life of gratitude really makes us happy. Gratitude turns our life into a positive life. This also extends to people around us especially those who we show and tell them how much we are grateful. Those people will also be grateful for our existence in their life. This is exactly a proof that when you give out then you will get back.
A Final Word
I am grateful for the wonderful friends I have in my life. Some of those friends are far from where I live now but they are so close to my heart. Thanks all for being wonderful friends and being part of my life. I am sure you all have more to say about gratitude since I still got a lot to learn from you all. Please feel free to share here. I will be so grateful !
All the best…
