Gratitude allows us to feel more positive in any moment. When we develop a relationship with gratitude and make thankfulness a part of our daily experience, it is easy to find ourselves experiencing greater happiness and greater joy. Gratitude establishes a foundation on which to grow our joy from within.
“The root of joy is gratefulness... It is not joy that makes us grateful; it is gratitude that makes us joyful.” ~ Brother David Steindl-Rast
