☆  gratitude 感謝


All the “gurus” talk about gratitude being the key to happiness, right? Being thankful for what we already have will bring us more of what we want. Is this a common theme in Japan, too?

A few months ago, I was very busy and it felt like I was forgetting to feel gratitude, so I set a timer on my iPhone! Each day a little message pops up and says, “Remember gratitude!” Now, whenever that message pops up during the day, I take a few moments to think about gratitude and what I am thankful for at that time or on that day.

What do you do to practice gratitude in your daily life?
