 Gratitude, a first step towards happiness
Being grateful may seem simple to some of us, but to others it can seem like a chore. 

We might go an entire day, or week, or maybe even a month or more, focusing on all that's "wrong" and forget to take stock of what's "right."
 
The idea of being and feeling grateful is something for the long run. 

According to an article in a special mindfulness issue of Time Magazine, gratefulness can make you happier and healthier,
 help you have better relationships and be nicer, and in general, just make the world a better place.

And, there's plenty of evidence supporting this.  Just listen to the science behind gratefulness...

I've recognized that being grateful means finding the best in every situation, looking for the good in life,
and focusing on what you can control.

There is no trickery or voodoo magic with being grateful, it is just a changing of your attitude toward life.
There is no shortcut to take, but the process is easy and the results are a positive attitude and a happy life....

Will you give gratitude a try today?
