- the quality or feeling of being grateful or thankful:
Use Gratitude to be happier
It is very easier to get into a bad mood if you do not have an attitude of gratitude. If someone has done something to upset you then rather than getting angry at them why not express some gratitude towards them instead?
Because it will make you feel better firstly and when you feel better there is more chance you might see the lesson behind it. There isn’t always a lesson, the person could just be in a bad mood and you were the first one they came across to take it out on.
If you don’t feel able to feel gratitude towards that person, which is understandable, think about something else you are grateful for.
You will find once you do that that your mood will change from a negative angry state to a happier state.
This is especially useful in your relationship with your partner. Don’t let things that they do to annoy you, put you in a bad mood or get into an argument. Instead think how grateful you are and tell them this.
Use Gratitude to improve your Relationship
The number of break ups and divorces within the world today seems to be rising at an alarming rate. People tend to fly off the handle with their partner over the smallest of things. So many are no longer prepared to make the effort to work through problems.
Once the criticism starts it seems to grow. Once in the habit, it will be easy to be critical and get harder and harder to find the good in your other half. Plus they will then retaliate and pick up on any minor transgressions and become more critical.
If you are someone that has a tendency to criticise your partner for all of their failings or things they do or don’t do, then change your approach and show them gratitude instead.
The many good traits you fell in love with, the things about your partner that you really admired.
Then it will be easy for you to find things that you are grateful for and can tell your partner about.
Tell them why you’re so grateful to have them in your life, it will make them feel good. Notice how their face changes and the words that they say in reply. Gratitude will certainly help you to make your relationships stronger.
You may find suspicion at first if the constant criticism has been going on for a long time but keep trying. It will get better.
You can be a better Parent with Gratitude
If you’ve got children then it’s pretty easy for you to become frustrated with them at times. They do things that you don’t want them to do and have probably told them not to do many times. This often results in anger and disappointment. In this situation most parents will express their disappointment to their children which just creates a negative atmosphere.
When you criticise your children they are going to feel really bad about what they have done. They may also feel resentment at being in trouble and even angry too.
Next time, stop before anger takes over and tell them you are disappointed they didn’t remember. Point out all the good things they do and how grateful and appreciative you are that they do them.
This will change their mood immediately and everybody will feel better for the experience. A side effect is that next time they go to repeat the bad behaviour your last reaction might make them pause and think twice about it.
Gratitude helps you to cope with a Tragedy
If you experience a tragedy in your life such as losing a loved one, then think about the people that are left in your life and express your gratitude for this. It’s not easy to focus on gratitude at such a time but if you can, even a little, it will help you.
We all have to face tragedies at some time or another in our lives and the most important thing is that you try not let this totally overcome you.
By expressing your gratitude for the people that you still have in your life you will be more positive about moving forward. Use these amazing benefits to rework your life for the better through an attitude of gratitude.
Change Your Life With Gratitude
As you can see, gratitude can make a big difference to your life in so many ways. It is often the first step on a journey to change your life for the better. Many want a better life but most want a quick fix, if they don’t see instant results they move on to the next big thing.
I challenge you to give it a try for a few weeks. When you wake each morning list a few things you are grateful for, at the very least it will start your day with a positive frame of mind.
The added bonus of being grateful is that it makes you happy. Being happy raises your vibration and brings more happiness. This also brings more to be grateful for.
As you move forwards with your life, feeling gratitude daily, you will find that life just improves in every area. Things go more smoothly, doors open, the right things and people appear in your life.
All the people who you see that seem to glow and draw others to them are very happy and grateful for everything they have in their lives.
