Just a couple of whispered words can create an enormous amount of change in our live. The power of gratitude for helping us bring what we want into our days is incredible. Simple, proven, effective - being grateful for everything brings us more opportunities to be grateful.
Not in an ugly way, like "You better be grateful for that food, there are starving kids who would be happy to have that to eat" but in an honest, heartfelt way. More like, "Thank you for my car, I love the ability I have to drive where I need to go" That kind of thinking can bring you a new car (if that's what you want) a whole lot quicker than heaping curses on the car you have now.
