Making gratitude a way of life, is the surest way to a joyful one.
Feeling gratitude helps you realize that you already have enough. Feeling gratitude brings us to that feeling we are ultimately searching for in our quest for more. We tend to think we need things, because what we want is to feel satisfaction from having them. But really, we need to feel gratitude first, and then it simply points to what we already have that is satisfying.
The more grateful we feel, the more beautiful our lives are. That is truly joyful, indeed.
