Love this article Report
I love the snail mail letters to people idea. I've thought about doing it for a long time, have pretty cards and stationary in preparation, but haven't gotten around to making the effort. I commit to sending out one personal letter/card weekly to someone. I recently started a "lifestyle development" journal, and adding a couple things from my day I was grateful for would be a lovely enhancement! Report

I really appreciate the comments. I especially liked the one reference writing thoughtful letters during Lent instead of giving up something. Report
When things are not going right take a minute to reflect on the things you do have, health, food, house. spouse, being born into a country which offers unlimited potential, the physical possessions you have not mentioned: clothes and shoes, family, transportation, friends. Remember all this was given to you by the heavenly father who wants us to be joyful. If you need something ask; it shall be given but it will be in his time not ours. Meanwhile be happy with what you have , Report
An Attitude of gratitude comes when you know there is someone greater than you. Report
During Lent I encourage my congregation to write letters to people who have made a difference in their lives . . . a teacher; an author; a neighbor; a politician . . . anyone at all. And do it in handwriting and snail mail it to them. People are so delighted to get a real letter anymore that it really makes a double impact!

They do this instead of giving something up; they take something up . . . gratitude and thanks and appreciation for how others' lives touch ours.

And you don't have to wait for Lent to try it out! Report
Being grateful makes for happiness in your life. Report
I try each day to reflect on the many blessings in my life. Report
