Be Grateful for Gratitude

In Twelve Step ... itís ... to groan when someone says, ďLetís have a ... ... People donít like to talk or think about what theyíre grateful for. Itís not in our nature. Weír

In Twelve Step meetings, itís traditional to groan when someone says, ďLetís have a gratitude meeting.Ē People donít like to talk or think about what theyíre grateful for. Itís not in our nature. Weíre more tuned to whatís going wrong than whatís going right. We canít help it. The cave men who sat around and admired how white the teeth on the saber toothed tiger were, didnít last long enough to reproduce. The ones who realized those teeth were a bad thing are our ancestors, so to speak.

But gratitude is important. Sometimes I just sit in my office, which I painted and decorated myself after moving into a wonderful new house, and I look at all the hangings on the wall and the things on my desk and the books on my shelves and I remember growing up in a house where I couldnít sleep in my bedroom in the winter because the north wind blew through the window and the room was uninhabitable. And I feel grateful.

Gratitude gets a bad rap as being some sort of ďfeel-goodĒ thing, but itís not. Real, true, deep gratitude comes from the soul. Itís not some pop-culture thing. Itís not something you say to make yourself look good or to make someone else feel good.

Real gratitude is truly appreciating what you have, and feeling itís enough. Sure, there are other things youíd like to have. There always will be. But in gratitude, you realize that if you donít get the new car or the new house, itís enough.

We should be ďgrateful for gratitudeĒ because itís one of the fastest ways to appreciate our lives and feel happier. This simple technique, practiced every dayFree Articles, can change your life.
