Gratitude is attitude.
It is true that what we give comes back tenfold. The same goes for gratitude. It manifests contentment and genuine happiness that affects people around us like gentle rays of sunshine. Some days, this sunshine is the brightest light of all, other times, it becomes a guiding light.
Gratitude connects hearts in a peculiar way, and we feel no purer love than this. It is something one cannot fully explain, but when experienced, nothing compares. The world instantly becomes a better place, and it can be better still. Would not that be a sight to behold?
In this era of wants and instant gratification, it will do us well to be thankful for every little thing we have. The same little thing may be what others covet.

By now, most of us have heard the news: grateful people are happier, healthier and generally more fulfilled.
And while these are all really great side effects of gratitude, for me, one of the coolest things about gratitude is the way it affects the heart.
Studies show that when people cultivate positive feelings, the heart’s frequency changes and its waves become smoother and more consistent, while anxiety or stress caused waves to be shorter and less organized.
It may be the reason we say we’re having a “heart to heart” with someone when we’re engaged in an intimate, sincere conversation.
Choose your company wisely, but find comfort in the idea that gratitude has a way of trumping all. Keep gratitude flowing in your own heart…
