    Thank you for an amazing article which I found to be honest and well worth the time to read. I always try to be positive within my life but as you say gratitude helps us to be positive. I am a grateful person but gratitude is more than that. I look at my life and love who I am I have been through some really nightmare situations but it is everything I have gone through which has made me the person I am today of this I'm truly grateful for. I'm over weight and not that healthy but I still love who I am.
    Once again thank you for a wonderful inspiring message. - 1/19/2015 9:52:23 AM
  • I start each day quietly being grateful for all the blessings in my life. It is a habit I developed as part of the Positive Bloggers team here at SP. Somedays, when time allows, I even blog them here. - 1/18/2015 9:20:55 AM
    Thank you for reminding me how many things I am thankful for. I try to thank God in my nightly prayers and weekly Mass for all His blessings, but you pointed out some I have overlooked. - 12/26/2014 9:07:25 PM
  • Well said! Great article! I try & live my life this way everyday except I need to express my feelings more to the actual people I am grateful for. My husband & sons tend to be negative, my daughter & I the positive ones. As I am transfoming all aspects of my life to better myself, my husband & boys see the progression. Believe it or not, they are starting to catch on with this & the laws of attraction! - 10/29/2014 2:03:35 PM
  • what an awesome article. I consider myself one to share gratitude often. but after reading this article I see it would benefit me and the other person if I say why I'm thankful for what was done. I love the idea of calling on the person who is complaining... me included... to then say at least one good thing coming from the demise. because, no matter how upset we are at a situation - if I can say one good thing that is coming from it, I can then come up w/another, and that my dear, is what gets me (and most likely you too) in a better mood and then able to get out of the disturbing/upsetting situation. - 10/23/2014 11:35:52 AM
  • I am grateful for people like you all that have gone thru rough times and can inspire someone like me to practice gratitude. Love the Gratitude Box idea!!! - 10/19/2014 4:36:25 PM
  • I really needed this today - I am a very grateful person and tell people that a lot. I just am not very good at being grateful for me and my strengths. I am very blest to have the same kind of job - in fact I am headed outdoors to the deck to begin my work assignment for today - my self-evaluation! My first step will be to do make a list of what I am most grateful about me! - 8/7/2014 10:49:49 AM
  • Agree on so many level. Renewing my journaling and search for what is right. Thanks for the reminder. - 3/26/2014 12:33:42 PM
  • I was really blessed reading this article and feeling guilty for complaining so much. These last 14 years have been a whirlwind for me, and I need to refocus my attitude to one of gratitude on a daily basis where I don't have to feel guilty. Praise GOD that HE never leaves us. - 3/1/2014 9:39:48 PM

  • Bible principles work! - 11/29/2013 7:16:28 AM
  • For years I have kept a BLESSING BOX - when a special blessing would come my way, I'd jot it down and deposit it there. On those times when I was feeling less than blessed, It always brought a smile to my face to pull out one of those blessings and relive it again. - 11/28/2013 1:20:31 PM
  • Every night I write in my gratitude journal just before turning out the light. I chose three things. One always is related to my body and the other two can be anything! It is a practice that helps me stay balanced. - 11/28/2013 5:32:11 AM
  • My life seemed to be crashing all around me today. I read this article and life took on a new look! There is so much to be thankful for - my mom, my 2 daughters and my favorite nephew! Thanks for the reminder! - 11/5/2013 9:52:08 PM
