Being aware and thankful for the good things that happen in life.
When you are grateful you look for the good in the world and appreciate things that happen to you, or are given to you, which positively influence your life.
Gratitude is a strength that works as an antidote to our negative emotions. By noticing and appreciating the good things in life, we focus on and appreciate the present moment. Looking at the world with gratitude makes us participate in life; to live in the now.
Gratitude is always a choice. It’s about appreciation, not expectation.
