What is the difference between someone who is full of joy, has a zest for life, and always seems to have a smile on their face, and someone who is grumpy, grouchy, and a total drain to be around?
Is it the amount of money they have?
Is it simply their personalities?
Is it the circumstances they’re going through?
While all those things certainly can play a role in the amount of joy a person experiences, they’re not the primary factor.
The primary factor is gratitude.
Gratitude has the power to change any situation. Actually, a better way of putting it is that gratitude has the power to change the way we experience any situation.
Being grateful may not change your circumstances, but it does change you,
and that makes all the difference.
Sonja Lyubomirsky put it beautifully when she said:
“Gratitude is an antidote to negative emotions, a neutralizer of envy, hostility, worry, and irritation. It is savoring; it is not taking things for granted; it is present-oriented.”
This is the power of thankfulness. It has the power to change the very way we experience life. It can neutralize negative emotions and enable us to learn incredibly valuable lessons even in the midst of challenging circumstances.
Thankfulness has the potential to transform your health, both mental and physical. It can also transform your spirituality and help you attract good things into your life.
With thankfulness comes great power. And the more you cultivate gratitude, the more power you’ll experience in your life.
