“… find a Gratitude Journal, and open your mind up to just how helpful this simple practice may be on the path toward embracing your thankfulness.

According to Psychiatric Medical Care (source)
Gratitude is more than just the feeling of thankfulness. Being thankful is the first step, and we have to have that initial feeling to build upon. We build upon it by redirecting our focus into making gratefulness an intrinsic part of our lives 365 days a year. Gratitude requires us to stay alert of the role of others in our lives.
The key is keeping gratitude at the forefront of our lives. It’s not just thinking about how thankful we are to have all that we have. It’s about living out that gratitude through the simple things we do every day. Gratitude is the manifestation of love, devotion and commitment … It encompasses shared experiences,…, and help us understand how connected we are to others.
