While some wait to feel happy with the way things are for them before they’d be grateful, truly happy people have realised that you have to be grateful first before you can be happy.
Gratitude opens us up to the positive side of life and things, and gives us enough reason to be happy, no matter what the situation may be at the time. It shows us things to be happy about, even in the midst of many evils and wrongs.
A feeling or show of gratitude births happiness in us. It magnifies the good and shrinks the bad; and when we focus on the good, good multiplies and we have more reasons to be happy.
Do you want to always be happy? First, be grateful!
