I have learned gratitude is a great virtue to practice, preferably everyday.
I read an article about gratitude just recently and say to myself: Self, you have to talk about this gratitude thing.
I wanted to express how gratitude has helped, and still helps, me in my life and hope it will help you too.
There is a scripture that says, “Be anxious for nothing, but make your request to God through prayer and thanksgiving…” (paraphrasing Philippians 4:6-7).
Thanksgiving, thankfulness = Gratitude
I have found offering gratitude, thankfulness, to those around me has helped to foster better relationships. It shows I appreciate them; I do not take them for granted.
A simple “Thank You” can mean so much.
For instance, I know saying thank you to my husband for his support, love and daily grind is why I can do what I do. When my daughter says Thank you mommy for being my mommy, it just melts my heart.
Everyone wants to be acknowledged and appreciated. When you send a thank you card, or sincerely thank someone, people will be more inclined to look at you in a positive light. Being grateful can win you a friend. Who doesn’t want a friend? I sure do, want friends.
Thusly, I am so grateful for all the people who have offered my advice, who have given me an opportunity to act, who have been a positive mouth piece, who have just been there…you get it.
It’s so awesome to have someone like you for reading and sharing what I write here on AmandaRosario.com –> Thank You!
P.S. Now I want to hear from you. What are you grateful for in your life? Who are you grateful for in your life? If money didn’t matter, what would you do for someone you are truly thankful for? Let me know in the comments below.
